Getting To Know Your Freshman Varsity Student Athletes
by Isabel Hecimovich
Sport: Varsity Volleyball
Do you have a favorite athlete and why do you like them so much?
I like Stephen Curry because he shows really good work ethic, and it inspires me to do better.
What hobbies do you have outside of athletics?
I used to play musical instruments, but now that sports have taken up so much of my time, I like to use my free time spending time with my friends. Also, when I have extra time I like to read teen fiction books.
What is the best part of joining the varsity volleyball team?
I really enjoy meeting and playing with older girls. Being given the opportunity to play at the varsity level, I feel like I will really be able to develop as a player and learn for the older players. I also like, that through volleyball, I am able to meet more people who share common interests with me. My favorite part of joining volleyball is making the pre-game pump up playlist with the team. Dancing and laughing, just having a good time.
What type of music do you like to listen not before a game?
I like to listen to rap music to pump me up for a game, especially Drake.
Do you play any other sports?
I just stopped playing basketball, because I wanted to focus more on volleyball. I liked playing basketball because it was another fun activity to do and it helped keep me fit by doing a lot of cardio. I played CYO and club basketball for St. Mary’s and St. Perpetua, and then for a club called Diablos and then for Cal Stars.
