As a 6’3”, 6 rotation player, I have been training in the College Prep division of the Sports Performance Volleyball Club in Aurora, Illinois.
In 2011 I was first selected to play on the Elite 14 team, in 2012 season with the 15 Elite Frosh squad and in 2013 with the 16 Elite team.. This intensive training and competition club has improved my abilities and provided me with the opportunity to travel to major tournaments in the United States, from Houston, to Ohio, Louisville, Nashville and Orlando, along with the highly competitive SPVB Power League season long schedule.
In the fall of 2012, I began my second year competing on the Hinsdale Central High School Varsity. My HS team had a great State playoffs run, making the Elite 8 Super Sectionals Final in the IHSA class 4A. My play will continue to improve as I am training daily with more experienced teammates who will continue their careers at Division I universities.
During the 2012 club season, I was selected as team captain for my Sports Performance squad, so that has allowed me to learn more leadership skills. With my height, leaping ability, leadership and desire to continually improve in my play, I want to play at the college level. At the AAU Nationals in Orlando last June (2012), my team finished tied for 5th out of 174 teams. We played exceptionally well as a team and I was only 1 of 14 players selected to the AAU All Tournament Team in my 15 division. This is an honor that reflects upon my teammates.
Most recently, the 16 Elite team competed in the June 2013 AAU Nationals in Orlando. My team finished T-5 out of 90 teams in the Open Division. (I have posted tournament stats on my NCSA profile)
I have been involved with a number of college level training camps as an individual, with team camps at my high school, along with individual training at the SPV club. I enjoy playing (and learning) at a high level, against older competition. As I move into my junior year at Hinsdale Central High School, I have become more focused on my volleyball improvement, along with the importance of my school work. I work hard at my studies, especially with the time management that's needed in the demanding schedules of both high school and club play.
I remain an active member of my church high school youth group, eager to be successful in my high school studies and supporting the entire Hinsdale Central High School community.
Volleyball is my passion!
Volleyball is my passion and am eager to play at the collegiate level. I started playing competitive volleyball at the age of 11, and at age 12 was selected to play on a highly competitive travel team and have been playing at Rage Volleyball in Ripon, California since.
I enjoy playing as a Libero/DS on the court because it gives me the opportunity to utilize my leadership skills and lead my team to success. In the 2013 club season, my team, Rage Volleyball 15-1’s, earned an Open bid to Junior Nationals in Dallas and placed 14th in the nation. This past club season, my team, Rage Volleyball 16-1’s, earned an American bid to Junior Nationals in Minnesota and placed 1st. I have started on my high school varsity team for the past two seasons and helped lead my team both seasons to two league championships as well as two section titles, where I earned Player of the Match in this past section final. I consider myself as a resilient and very coachable player and each year I have been striving to improve my game, along with taking on additional training opportunities. This upcoming season I am excited to continually better my skills weekly with players on my club team who will continue their careers at Division I universities.
As I move into my junior year at Vacaville Christian High School I continue to focus on my growth on the court, in the classroom, and in my community. Academically, I challenge myself and have a history in excelling in that environment. I am confident that I will also excel in the collegiate environment as a student-athlete. I am looking to attend a school that can recognize me for both my volleyball and academic skills, and I believe that I am fully prepared to meet the challenge of playing at the next level.
