Favorite high school memory:

"My favorite memory was beating Liberty at Liberty for the first time in Eagles volleyball history."

Coach/Teacher who made the biggest impact:

"Coach Katie Dowden by far had the biggest impact on me throughout high school. She made me a stronger person on and off the court."

Thing you will miss the most about high school:

"I will miss the simple things about high school -- volleyball, the bus rides, team dinners and game days."

Best part about high school and this community:

"The best part about our community at Liberty North is our student body. Whatever the sporting event, we brought a crowd. It was amazing this year. We had never had the gyms packed watching us play until this past season."
