Senior Season Tribute

Just wanted to post a few pictures of my cute team, and show everybody how cool my team is at Dixie State! Volleyball has legitimately been my life for the past 10 years now! I've been playing since 7th grade, and now I'm almost done with my Senior Season in college. It has been a bitter-sweet thing to be a part of. Volleyball has put me through both the hardest and best times in my life. Believe it or not, it has taken me all ten of these years to feel like I have finally had ONE successful season. I've been on both bad teams and good teams, but never felt like I had a season that I could say, "Man, that was THE year- MY year"- UNTIL NOW...

Now, I never beat Mountain View in high School... I never went to Nationals at SCC... And I'm not gonna win a title at Dixie State... But my team this year DID beat the NUMBER 1 team in our conference in 3 STRAIGHT GAMES... and I've never felt more like a winner on a winning team.................. and my mom got to be there... and so did my dad... and so did Chandler, my little sister... and so did my hero, my sister Kami.

All these years I've looked up to Kami. Kami was a great volleyball player. She beat Mountain View in High School, she went to Nationals at SCC, and she was an ALL-AMERICAN SETTER. Kami taught me all that I know about volleyball, and she's helped me through all of the years that I've played. I couldn't have gotten as far as I have without her!

Only 4 games left of my volleyball career... these are for you Kam! Thanks for making me feel like an all-american! xoxo
