Volleyball; A PassionFriday, March 25, 2011 By Brandon Adamson
Once a volleyball player, always a volleyball player. To sophomore Raelynn Heredia, volleyball is life. Every since she was little, volleyball was all she thought about. Everybody knew that she would reach her goal and that’s exactly what she’s doing. Starting on varsity is every kid’s dream when it comes to sports, but doing it as a sophomore is unexpected. Heredia takes volleyball to a whole different level. “I play with heart and passion,” She said. “Volleyball is a team sport and working together is key.” Heredia shed blood and tears to get where she is today. Varsity sports are never a joke. Heredia says, “You have to be at the top of your game. There is no room for error.” Starting is a big deal to her and her family. She gets tons of support and love. Everybody expects her to lead her team to victories, every game she plays. Working in and out of practice helps her to be a better volleyball player. That’s why she is on varsity and is captain of the team. Without volleyball, she said she wouldn’t know what to do. “Volleyball is my life and potential career; I have to make the best out of my remaining high school years,” Heredia stated. She plans to work hard and be the best athlete she can be and hopefully succeed to go off into the world of college sports.
