Favorite Sport (and why): "Definitely volleyball. I started playing volleyball my freshman year, and ever since then it has been a huge part of my life. I play practically all year long, and I have met so many people from all of my club teams and going to camps all over the place. I absolutely love playing against players from across the country and seeing the talent that people can bring to the game."
Best Part of High School Sports (and why): "The best part of high school sports is definitely being placed in a leadership role where the kids in the community look up to you."
Best Advice from a High School Coach: "My basketball coach, Bob Maronde, said to take advantage of every opportunity you get, big or small. Always have an “I get to do this” attitude
instead of having an 'I have to do this' attitude."
Most Memorable Moment in High School Sports: "This year in volleyball we beat Plymouth in four sets and it was a really hard fought game in a loud gym. I was also proud of being voted as school Female Athlete of the Year as a sophomore."
Best Part of Playing Three Sports: "I love being able to compete in sports year round and never missing an opportunity to better myself and my teammates. I get to challenge myself in being a versatile player in every sport."
Toughest Part of Playing Three Sports: "Especially with playing club volleyball during school basketball and soccer season, I need to make sure that I’m not overworking myself and leaving time to recover after games and tournaments."
Favorite Opponent (and why): "Plymouth is always a tough competition in all sports. The gym is always packed, and the atmosphere is super exciting."

Toughest Individual You’ve Competed Against (and why): "In basketball, Sara Braun who was two years older than me. She always balled out in every game we played against her. She was a good shooter, could drive to the basket, and was a very versatile player."
Most Admired High School Teammate (and why): "I admire Alisa Mendez, and because we play every sport together, I get to see how hard she works in every aspect of her game. She continues to better herself whether it be in the weight room, conditioning, or skills."
