Senior year of volleyball when my team went undefeated in the CWC-10. Each game was a new experience, another battle for us to overcome. There wasn't a better feeling than playing as a team and coming home with a victory.

Advice to an athlete:

Give it all you've got, because someday, you'll run out of time and anything you left behind will be lost forever. You should never leave a game or practice thinking, "I should've done more..."

Your inspiration:

My parents. They were always there to support me, through thick and thin. They have never missed a game and I appreciate everything they have done.
