Spotlight Athlete

Q. What made you choose to play volleyball instead of basketball, being that you went to the state
championship in high school?


A. I think that I am better in volleyball than I am in basketball. I kind of have more interest in
playing volleyball then playing basketball all together.


Q. What is the difference in competition between playing volleyball in high school versus playing
volleyball at a college level?


A. I think it’s a lot more fast paced than high school. The hits are definitely a lot harder too.


Q: Who or what inspired you the most to play volleyball?


A. My high school volleyball coach inspired me to play. I just simply liked her as a person, she
always pushed me to be the best I can be.


Q: What do you enjoy the most about volleyball?


A. I like everything about volleyball. I definitely like the hitting the most though.


Q: How do you usually prepare for your best performances?


A. I usually have a lot of fun and make sure I am keeping a good attitude.


Q: What are your goals for the future/ career?


A. As a career I’m not really sure what I want to do yet. I do know I want to get a good job
though and if I get the opportunity to play pro then I’ll do that.


Q. Do you have any inspirational advice that you can give to upcoming athletes?


A. Just work your hardest, have fun, and most of all shoot for the stars.


Q: What are your goals for the team this season?


A. Going to Nationals would definitely be awsome.
