What is your favorite thing about volleyball and the team?

My favorite thing about volleyball and the team is how we know when to be funny and joke but also when we need to be serious and locked in. we always share laughs at practice and games and it really shows who we are as a team.

Do you have any pre-game rituals?

Before every game I braid Shayne Immke, Addie Roesch, and Taylor Hug’s hair. Then after, Mikayla Haley braids mine.

To never give up no matter when and that more is always possible. also, we can come back and we can get over obstacles.
