We are all in this together!

For the past 5 years of my life at the beginning of each school year I have given of my time to play volleyball. Volleyball has challenged me, made me a stronger person and made me an even better leader. As I step away from the past 5 years I look back at all the memories and friends that I have made. I have had good points and bad points in my volleyball career. This year has really tested me as an athlete was I really willing to give myself to this team and I was. I would like to go away letting my team and my coaches know how much I have appreciated them. They have made me the person I am today and helped me grow as both an athlete and a person.

Coach Braun, thank you for giving of your time to help me grow, without you I wouldn’t be who I am today. Although sometimes I wanted to give up you were the one that pushed me.

Hannah Guske, you are one of the sweetest girls I know thank you for always making sure I knew where to go and for all the encouragement you gave me. You truly are a great friend and I am so glad I had the opportunity to play with you for the past few years.

Sarah Simms, thank you for always being the strength I needed to pull through. You were the backbone of the team to me. You knew what you were supposed to do and you did it. I appreciate the endurance you have to go for everything!

Meredith Artime, the energizer bunny!! Thank you for pushing me in every game. When I got down on myself you were the one who lifted me up! I appreciate your attitude to push people but at the same time encourage.

Sara Klemm, the good annoying one. Ha-ha. You were the person I could always count on to get into the other teams head! Thank you for all the dedication you have given to this team. I can’t wait to see where you go from here.

Riley Kretsinger, you are a beast and I am going to miss you so much! Thanks for always cheering me up and just making me laugh when that was what I needed most! Love you girl! Keep playing and striving to be great!

As I end this I want to thank every one of you who played and gave it your all! I will never forget this season as I step away. You are forever and always in my heart! I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!
