Volleyball’s been a huge part of my life for a really long time, and I’ve been
playing since I was in grade 5. In grade 7, we had a pretty good volleyball
team compared to the rest of the district. We were super nervous going into
districts, but our coach believed in us and knew we could do it. We had
done super well the first day and won all of our games. The second day we
even made it to the finals, against Minnekhada, a super tough team. We
worked really hard as a team and we ended up winning a banner and a
trophy for our school. This is a special memory to me because it reminds
me that if I show hard work and dedication it’ll pay off.
