What other sport would you like to compete in if you were not playing yours?

What is something that is unique about your sport?

“You have to constantly work together and can’t think about selfishness once or it affects the play entirely.”

 

What is the most challenging thing for you to do in your sport?

“Serve receive because serves move a lot and it’s difficult to get my feet in the right spot every time which gives me trouble. Also staying out of my head while I am playing.

“Once I make a mistake it’s hard for me to get out of that slump but my coach and teammates always lift me up.”

 

Who would you say is your “biggest fan?”
