List any academic or athletic achievements you have earned during high school career (i.e. honor roll, all-conference, student council, all-state, etc.)

I am class president at my school, have been on honor roll for 3 years, made it on homecoming and prom court, and participate in honors classes at Freeland

What do you enjoy most about competing in high school sports?

I love being able to compete against other schools because you create a strong bond with your teammates and learn how to work together efficiently

What is your best memory from HS sports so far, and why is it meaningful to you?

Beating Swan Valley my sophomore year in regular season was my best memory because the crowd was surreal, the game was amazing and it was a great day to be a Freeland Falcon!

What are you looking forward to most this upcoming season?

All of the new competition we have in the Tri Valley Central conference! New teams to beat!

What’s your go to pre-game/contest meal? Where do you get it from?

I love Cliff Bars, the chocolate brownie one is soooo good and they’re packed with protein

Who is your team’s biggest rival? What makes that rivalry special or different from the other teams you’ll face this season?

Swan Valley is our biggest rival, and simply because they are the closest in skill to our team, it’s always a great game when we play them!

What is one personal and one team goal that you have for this upcoming season?

A personal goal would be to raise my blocking stats, and as a team I would love for us to make it past regionals this year, as our time was cut short at regionals last year against Corunna.

If you could go back in time and give yourself one piece of advice as a Freshman, what you would it be?

You don’t need to worry about anyone but yourself! Work hard on your own game and it will be rewarded in the future
