Other Information & Preferences

Family

I live with both my parents who support my goal to play college level volleyball. My older brother is a Sophomore in college and plays on a recreational volleyball team. He played volleyball for Seneca Valley in high school. My parents played sports in their high school years with my dad earning scholarships in both football and baseball. My mother played volleyball as did all of her sisters and brother in high school with one sister being granted a college scholarship to Central Missouri State.

Personal Statement

I am a Senior at Seneca Valley High School. I began my volleyball years in 8th grade and have been playing ever since. One of my top goals is to play volleyball at a college level. Volleyball isn’t the only thing I enjoy though! Friends and family are a huge part of my life. After working hard all day at school and then practice I love coming home to my family to talk about my day and to chat with friends on the phone. School’s very important and I always do my best to achieve the highest goal.
