My passion to play sports in college stems from the fact that I have been involved in sports since I was 4 years old . Sports have been an enormous part of my life for as long as I can remember. It all started on the t-ball field, moved to the softball field, to travel softball, and finally to my high school team with the same coach I had growing up as a little girl who led us to districts this year. Then from rec league volleyball, to club volleyball at Blackswamp where as a member of the 14 National team we won the National Championship in Minnesota, to having that same coach lead me through an amazing journey as my high school coach and being a starter on a final four team as a sophomore.
Furthermore, watching my twin brothers further their wrestling careers in college and seeing how much passion they still have for the sport they love not to mention all the friendships and connections they have made because of continuing to wrestle. I can't imagine not playing sports as it is one of the largest components that have made me who I am today.
I demonstrate leadership on and off the field/court by leading by example. Off the field/court I show leadership by maintaining a high gpa, serving as vice-president of my class, tutoring elementary students while assisting teachers, my involvement in teen leadership, and my favorite which is being a volunteer 4-H camp counselor at Camp Conger every year. On the field/court, I demonstrate leadership by being chosen as team captain by my teammates, encouraging my teammates when they are struggling, encouraging good sportsmanship (leading by example), and speaking up and acknowledging my own faults when I make a mistake and ensuring my teammates know that we learn from those mistakes and it only makes us better/stronger in the end. This is what makes me a good leader.
I pursue a healthy athletic performance as a student athlete by maintaining a high gpa and being a role model for my teammates and younger athletes at MHS. I stress to others how important it is to be a good role model on and off the court. I enjoy pushing myself to achieve the goals I have set forth for my teammates and myself. I pride myself on being a three sport athlete (softball, volleyball, and basketball). I feel it is very important to be a well-rounded athlete and to work hard at achieving the goals you set forth for both your team and yourself, keeping in mind that "team" always comes first. I work hard in the "off season" to lift weights whether it is at the school or at home. I put in time for all three sports while still competing in whatever current sport season I'm in at the time. During the summer, I attend camps, open gyms, summer league, and lifting for all three sports. These are the things that are important to me having a healthy athletic performance.
I am vice-president of my junior class. I enjoy being a member of Teen Leadership Corps, National Honor Society, tutoring elementary students and aiding elementary teachers. I participate in 4-H where I enjoy displaying my photography projects and showing pigs. I volunteer my time every year as a 4-H camp counselor at Camp Conger. I have been a member of FFA. I enjoy volunteering my time at Renaissance House, Inc. by assisting developmentally disabled individuals. Through my church I have helped deliver meals to people in need. I volunteer my time assisting younger athletes at MHS through helping at volleyball, basketball, and softball camps each year. As a class officer, member of Teen Leadership, and member of NHS I volunteer throughout the year in a variety of projects that help my community and the surrounding communities.
