Lettered In Volleyball
*** I Play Both League in the AAU's and Club for USA VB When viewing my Film I will have two different types of game play. Please View as many Clips as you can as you will see I can play different positions. You will be able to see what my strengths are and how versatile I can be. ***I have only taken the Pre-SAT and Pre-ACT testing. I do not have scores as of yet for the actual tests. I will this year 2017. Please view all my videos, as I play with different teams that are different levels. I will show videos from first play with each team and how we develop as we get through the season.
I am right handed but can also hit with my left hand. I'm a hitter mainly a Middle, I like the middle spot because there are so many different sets to hit from, I like to stuff balls in that Middle Spot. I'm a good Outside Hitter. I can use my right and left hand which comes in handy on the Outside. I'm strong at serving and I believe if there is one thing you should know in VB, it's your Serve! Back Row Defense, I like the pressure that back row gets. I go for those balls it's like a personal best type thing with me. I can't let those balls hit the floor. I love back row, I'm usually put front row for my hitting though. I like back row attacks. I'm learning Right side now for HS, I can tell you it's not my strongest position. They have me there to for setting. I actually like setting. I'm an all around player because I feel it's important to be able to know the whole court and be great at at least three positions. On a personal note, I like learning. The college I choose will have to be one that fills my need to learn at a higher level. My field of study would be engineering with Chemical, Environmental and Petroleum. Since I am extremely interested in computer science and robotics I am slightly undecided as to what field I will actually take. I wake up every day excited to go to school to see what lessons my teachers have prepared for us. Science and Math are my strong points. I normally take double science and math to keep my mind excited and keep it interested! I am a new transfer to Frederick Senior HS. Since I came into the school after it had already started, I lost most of all my science and extra math classes as they were not available for me. I have already taken all my required science and math and any I take will be flow over. Next year I will try to triple up on them to make sure I can get those classes I wanted in. I belonged to MESA, Robotics and Interact club my freshman and sophomore year at my old HS. My new HS does not have Math and Science clubs and I will be changing that. I am in the works to set up a couple of Science and Math clubs. Hopefully math and robotics both together. My grades do not reflect what I can actually accomplish as a student. Meaning the grades I keep reflect what I can do as a student athlete. My time is spent on volleyball. Here in Co. It is extremely competitive. You have to work hard to be able to keep up and excel. Not only that, but keep competitive grades. Education is extremely important to me. I have an insane schedule which means I study when and where I can. Colorado is big and I live in a small town, I have to travel basically to all my vb training. I do my studying in the car, during lunch and in the middle of the night. My free days I love to spend with family, which always consists of studying at some point.
I'm I am passionate about volleyball! I do not see myself doing anything other than playing now and in my future. Don't get me wrong, I am a smart girl! My education is extremely important to me as well as my future career as an engineer! Wether it be on the court or teaching. I go the extra mile and know that if you aren't willing to give more than you have, then you should not be playing. There are people who have talent and I believe anyone can be taught but, there are those ones who have it in their heart, soul and blood and are willing to work for it! Those who actually work for it are the ones who you take a chance on. Those ones, those are the ones that make a difference in the sport! I'm one of those athletes.
During my free time am an assistant coach for young volleyball players. I teach them specific volleyball skills and character which is a huge part of being an athlete. Soon I will be able to Coach a young league team. This makes me more confidant on the court. I communicate better and try to keep the team aggressive, positive and keep us fighting till the end. Off the court "my court" I like to show the young kids how fun VB can be and how it can keep them healthy and active while doing what they love. Plus, I like to teach my girls the art of intimidation! I teach them the perfect game face! It works every time.
I train! I go to a personal trainer who is helping me get stronger, faster and higher. He also teaches me agility. He is a ninja warrior and he is teaching me to hit the floor more gracefully! Yes, gracefully..... I try to run when I can as I am not a runner. I hit in my garage daily. Depending on my schedule I take any clinic or skills camps that I can in my area. I will also take personal VB training to help up my game. During the summer I take as many college camps as possible and get on the HS Summer VB program which has league play. During club I double up and join league through the AAU's which gives me double the play, Saturday and Sunday tournaments. This summer I hit every open gym for all the higher division clubs. I basically spent my whole summer in a gym, day and night. The more court time the better.
With my Club Volleyball team we do community projects to help local programs. I also belonged to Interact Club which helps events in our school as well as community projects, such as community clean up day and help elderly clean yards. I have helped gather clothes for abused women and children. It is important to me because I feel our community gives a lot to our sports programs by dedicating their time and money in so many different ways. It's important to give back to the people who support me and my team. My club coach wanted us to learn the importance of hard work but not only that. She wanted us to know what we do is not something that just anyone can get to do. There is our parents who work very hard for use to be able to try to go for our dreams. She wanted us to know there are people out there in situations that they can't control and they aren't as lucky as we are. They were dealt a different hand. Those people we should really see and when ever we can try to help. Wether it be a conversation, clothes, food or playing with young children, being a mentor. She taught me there's is more to life than just myself. If you give to others your kindness, it could mean one good day for someone who has countless bad days.
