All Area (2012) Honorable Mention
I'm playing my high school Senior year as a setter and occasionally I play Libero if needed.
In years past, I played Libero and back up setter for high school and JO.
On and Off the court doesn't differ to me I am a part of a team. On the court, you are on a team to provide support to your teammates and work together to win. On the court, whether we are winning or losing, I help my teammates to maintain positive attitudes, shake off a bad play and get them to remember to just do the best they can. When players get down on themselves, it affects the whole team so I try and talk to them, give them encouragement and keep their spirits up.
Off the court, I set up meetings, impromptu practices or any college games that my team and I can attend to get us all together and have a good time. My family also records every game we play and sometimes we will have a team Pow-wow and watch the videos to look at what we may need to improve on or to see what we are doing right and reinforce!
As a healthy athlete, I don't go out and eat much fast food, or if I do I try and get snack wraps and salads. I do not drink soda at all, never have, never will. Instead of soda, I drink water and milk each day. As a part of our training, I eat a lot of pastas and before a game with meat and some fruits and in the morning for breakfast.
I am also focused conditioning throughout the year. Whether volleyball season is in or out, I am exercising, lifting weights, running and staying conditioned. During indoor and outdoor seasons, I have a balanced schedule. In addition to my body, I am also focused on my academics, my relationships with my family and friends and making sure that I balance everything that is important to me. Having a healthy mind is just as important as a healthy body.
My life has been dedicated to volleyball and I apply that to my service work. I have done a lot of volunteering in coaching clinics and volleyball camps with my Head Coach, Glenn Cashion for younger groups. (15-below) I have coached for indoor clinics at sports facilities and YMCA's and assisted in doubles beach volleyball clinics. I like to do things that are more involved with sports because I can relate better with people and I can continue to learn new people skills and actual skills as a coach! I have also done student sports medicine training for my high school in football, basketball, volleyball, wrestling and soccer. I work as a trainer that supplies the other teams with medical help whether that would be taping, ice, medicine (with consent of parent) , stretching, dietary habits, rehabilitation, water, braces, etc. This has helped me learn other ways to care for myself and my team mates too! When one of my players is injured normally I can assist him or her on the spot. This also goes along with what I feel that I would like to study in college! :)
In addition to volleyball, I have volunteered with our local church to help hand out food to families in need and work with the scout troups to clean up our local parks.
