It was hard at first knowing I couldn't get on the court. But I learned so much by practicing and watching the other girls. Plus, it gave me a good opportunity to get into the weight room and get stronger. I think that probably helped more than anything. I was able to improve my vertical leap and just add some muscle.
Things have happened pretty fast for me in this sport. I didn't even start playing until the ninth grade. I played basketball most of the time. But once I got started, I knew volleyball was going to be my sport. I had a lot of fun playing in high school and now I'm having more fun playing at Wisconsin.
