Sport: Volleyball (captain)

Extra points: Equestrian club member

Success on the court: Success in volleyball doesn’t necessarily mean a starting position or perfect stats, but being a valuable member of the team and the program. A solid work ethic is the biggest contributing factor to being successful in my sport. It takes a lot of dedication.
Success in the classroom: It’s simply doing the best I can in whatever class I’m in.

Winning combination: The dedication that athletics has instilled in me has been a contributing factor in my academic success. Sometimes you may have a big exam the day after an away game, so you won’t have much time to study for it the night before, but somehow you need to make it work. It can be especially difficult for studio classes because the work is not something you can easily do on the bus. Volleyball forces me to manage my time, which of course, is so important when it comes to a Wheaton workload. Also, taking classes I enjoy and am interested in makes a big difference.
