TASIS - Coach Chris's phone number is 011-44-7540-900678 (please, before 5:00 pm EST, as we are in London, England).

I have played middle hitter during all of my high school years, and played both middle and outside hitter in my club teams. I am a very good all around player, both front row and back. I love to be in the thick of things and I am not afraid to go after the ball. I have been told by my coaches, both in schools and in club, that I have great court sense and know where I need to be and what I need to do to get the job done. They also praise my coachability.

Sadly, during pre-season training at school, I had a collision with a teammate and ruptured my ACL. Surgery was October 9. The only damage found was the ACL. The surgeon said I should be able to start playing again in 9 months. I will be working as hard as I can to get back to playing condition as fast as possible.

**Update: At my 2-week followup, the surgeon told me I was doing as well at 2 weeks as most patients are doing at 6 weeks. At my 6-week followup, the surgeon said I should expect to be back to full playing capacity by early July! I am keeping active by working my legs with my physio therapist. We are in the basketball season now, so I am going to every practice and working on the sidelines by shooting and keeping my upper body strong.

Unfortunately, this means I will not be able to play this year and will be team manager for all three sports (volleyball, basketball, softball). I am still interested in playing in college, and would really like to hear from coaches that would be willing to give me a chance to prove that I have the skills and abilities that makes me a good fit for their team. I won't let you down!!

Volleyball Additional

My sports started at 5 years old playing softball, and at Christ Lutheran School in 5th grade, where I played volleyball and basketball. For volleyball, in 6th and 7th grades, I played UP on the 7th and 8th grade teams. We were league champions and won all of the tournaments we played in.

I played several years of AAU volleyball as well, on the Southwest VBC in Stevensville, MI, on the Midwest Juniors in Coloma, MI and in London in the Women's Division I Hillingdon team.

Other Academic Information
GPA is 2.87 unweighted (TASIS does not weight GPAs and does not rank students). The curriculum at TASIS is harder than most, with AP and IB courses offered, many classes tought by univ professors. I am a member of the Young Life group at school. We take a service trip every year to help out those less fortunate than us. The Spring 2009 trip was to Macedonia, where we helped build and paint playgrounds at various schools and parks. The kids were thrilled!
