Family: Parents, Kim and Chris.

High school goals: "Academically I want to push myself to be the best that I can and earn the best grades that I can. Athletically, I push myself to be a leader on and off the court and a dependable player for my team."

Life goals: "I want to major in exercise science in college and then become a physical therapist."

Role model: "My mom, because she's really hard-working and caring and always supports me."

You played in a set that Caldwell Academy won 25-0. What was that like? "It was really crazy. I didn't even realize it was happening. We started out really strong. At around 6-0, I said to myself, this is a great start. High Point Christian is a great team and a rival of ours, and it just kept going. … I was serving, but it didn't feel like a lot of pressure at the time. I just had to serve the ball inbounds, and my team made some crazy plays to keep that going."
