HIGH SCHOOL HONORS:
Hello! My name is Chloe Newton. I am a 6'0" Pin/DS from Louisville, KY, the home of the Kentucky Derby! I just finished my junior year (Class of 2022) with a 3.98 GPA in advanced & AP courses at Mercy Academy, where I am a starting OH on the Varsity Volleyball team that finished the season with a 20-3 record and as the KY State Runner-up!
I started playing club ball when I was just 8 years old, so volleyball has been a huge part of my life for the past 9 years. This club season I am playing for UNION UA 17-1. Over the last year and a half I have had the honor of being recognized as one of UNION Under Armour 17-1 Players to Watch, one of Five Underrated 6th Region Juniors-to-be, one of Six Louisville Sophomore Outside Hitters to Watch , and one of 10 Underrated Louisville 16s by Prep Dig. On the court I am best known for my strong work ethic, being a team player and for being highly coachable. I take instructions well and immediately work to turn them into results.
As important as volleyball is to me, my parents have raised me and encouraged me to be very well rounded, putting focus on my education above everything else. I am highly motivated academically and very involved in school, participating in a variety of both academically and socially focused clubs and activities. I have always had a high GPA and was able to achieve a 31 on my ACT this year. During my junior year I was also inducted into the National Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta, finished 3rd place in International Business in the FBLA State Competition and wrapped up the school year ranked 14th out of 130 students in my class.
My collegiate dream is to be able to combine my love for the game and achieve my education goals at a school that is the right fit for me. Do you need an OH/OPP/DS or utility hitter in your 2022 class? If you do and you think I would be a good fit for your program, or you just want to learn a little more about me, I would love to speak with you! You can also follow me on Twitter @chloenewton.
Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me!
I want to be recruited to play sports in college so that I may continue to learn and play the sport I love with other players and coaches who can develop me further as a player. I want to be able to get more exposure to the game and continue to be able to play more competitively and at a higher level, with the best of the best - just one of the things I love about volleyball. In addition, I would get the opportunity to advance and complete my education so that I may succeed in a future career.
As an athlete, I have demonstrated leadership both on and off the court in many ways. On the court, and in-and-out of seasons, I have been an all-around player leading my teams to many wins and successes. In school I am a participant of many different programs, including Mercy Scholars, Mercy Ambassadors and Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), which have given me the opportunity to develop leadership skills and become a leader of the school by making decisions on behalf of the rest of my peers.
As a student athlete, I have to focus on finding balance between my academics and athletics. In order to successfully pursue “healthy athletic performance” I have to make sure I prioritize schoolwork first, but then also place my health and fitness as a high priority. That includes making sure I focus on nutrition and keep a good sleep schedule so my body and mind can be on its A-game both in the classroom and on the court.
The last two years I have spent parts of my summer volunteering at the Louisville Zoo through their VolunTeen program. I volunteered in the Butterfly exhibit during the summer of 2018, and I am currently volunteering in the Wallaby exhibit this summer. I have also volunteered in my community (through freshman service) sorting food at Dare to Care, serving the homeless and hungry at the Franciscan Kitchen, and landscaping the grounds at the Louisville Zoo. This service to my community is very important to me because it allows me to pursue passions I have, as well as help those who may not be as fortunate as I am in certain areas.
