Q: Did you set any personal goals before the season? R: My personal goal for this season is being an all-region player. I like to set high goals for myself because even if I don’t achieve that goal I still made big improvements as a player.

Q: Do you have any athletes you try to model your game after? R: I don’t really have athletes I model my game after. I’ll see someone (a middle schooler or an Olympic player) do something really awesome and I just think to myself that I want my play to look like that, and practice it.

Q: What’s your favorite memory playing volleyball? R: My favorite volleyball memory was winning districts last year as the underdogs on Montgomery County’s home court.

Q: Who has had the most influence on your volleyball career? R: My teammates and Coach Bryson the last two years have probably had the most influence on my volleyball career. Coach B improves my fundamentals and skills while my teammates improve my mentality and leadership ability.

Q: Did you set any team goals before the season? B: Winning districts and placing in region would be really nice this year, but my other goal for this team would be to have a positive mindset, win or lose, and to play with heart and as a family.
