    Favorite Volleyball Moment:
     My favorite volleyball moment as a player would have to be when I was playing in just an adult 6s tournament in Virginia and we took 1 game from a team who were all Division 1 athletes. It sounds crazy but picture a team where everybody is like 5'5"-5'9" and 1 6' middle VS. a team full of a team all over 6'. Let's just we played really well, it was super fun and we didn't care that we lost. As a coach, my favorite moment was when my team I coached at West Potomac won the District Champs. We worked for 3 years building the program. Taking a losing program, who maybe only won 2 games a season, to becoming a hard working group who would maybe lose 1-2 games in the season. I was an amazing feeling and experience as a coach. To see these athletes grow and succeed, is one of the most amazing things.
