What’s Your Mavericks?
Jay Moriarty’s dream was to ride the waves at Mavericks off the coast of Santa Cruz. My dream is to continue playing volleyball and hopefully get a college scholarship somewhere. I would also love to make either the JV or Varsity volleyball team at Kickapoo.
I started playing volleyball in fourth grade. In sixth grade I tried out for my first club team. I tried out at Springfield Juniors and Stars and made both top teams. I chose Springfield Juniors and played there for two years. This year I am playing for Club Bear 14-1 team. I know that in order to achieve that goal, I must work very hard, make sacrifices, and practice nonstop. I really want to get a college scholarship when I finish playing at Kickapoo. This will be very difficult to do, but this is my main goal in my teen years. From here on out, it’s going to a lot of practice, just as it did for Jay Moriarty, but I am ready and want to devote my time to this.
Volleyball is my favorite thing to do; therefore I am willing to do a lot, in order to continue playing it. I’ve had a few “wipeouts” but I kept on trying. Jay accomplished his goal, so I hope to accomplish mine as well. I’m going to start practicing every time I have nothing going on. I’m going to go to the gym and play volleyball whenever I can. I’m going to work with a professional so they can help me become a better player. Lastly, I’m going to work hard in club volleyball season, school season, and high school volleyball season.
Jay Moriarty achieved his goal, so I hope to achieve mine. After all, anything is possible.
