Personal Highlights

About me: I I live in the Lake Tahoe area with my parents, 2 German Shepherds, 2 cats, and my sister is graduating from Cal Poly this year. I love the outdoors, and feel so fortunate to live in such a beautiful area. I attended a Spanish Immersion program K-8, and am very comfortable speaking, reading and learning in Spanish. I am a former downhill ski racer, swimmer, and club soccer player. I have played some tennis since my mom played in college, which has helped me see the openings on the court, and play aggressively and keep moving. Also, I think my speed and court sense also comes from playing midfield in soccer. I switched to volleyball from soccer after breaking my leg in the summer before 8th grade. I couldn’t run for 6 months, missed the Fall club soccer season, and, wasn’t cleared to run until a month after vb tryouts. I worked very hard to rehab after losing most of my leg strength from muscle wasting. Volleyball training brought me back to high level sports, and I do a lot of additional conditioning outside of practice to increase my speed, agility and vertical. I am the top setter on my 17-1’s team, but play setter like a Libero and get a lot of balls up to keep my team in points. I am very fortunate to train with my coach, a former top USSR setter, Sasha Gutor. I have good court sense; can hit from the front and back court, and I am very comfortable running the court, offensively and defensively. Currently, I run a 6-2, but have often run a 5-1 in club and high school. My speed and all-court play creates calm from surrounding chaos and gives my team extra chances to win the rally. I work hard to be a team-first, coachable player and to lead by example, foster a positive team energy. I love to compete and play my best in competition. I am hoping to blend academics with volleyball, and am doing my best now to prepare both academically (GPA 4.2) and athletically.

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

I want to have the collegiate experience of competing at a higher level. I love competing and being part of a team. I’d love to be able to combine my academics with volleyball.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

I have been a captain on every club and high school team. I am always leading my team by my work ethic. My high school team does not have other club players and therefore, I have to work extra hard to keep the ball up. I play setter like a libero. Off the court, I always try to show good character in how I treat others. I am a good listener and friend.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

I manage my time well and do things in advance so that I can train on the court as well as extra conditioning. I always put academics first, but make sure I do my school work in advance when we have tournaments. I eat well. I am pretty mentally tough, but I work on my mental game as well through visualization.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

I am on the Player Leadership team at Silver State Volleyball. We help organize club events and fundraisers for scholarships. I like the idea of helping girls, who might not be able to afford to play.
