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!!
