She encourages her teammates to try their best and helps them when they’re confused. She has come in clutch during a lot of our games especially with her serving. She’s always the first person to jump in on a drill, shag the balls, and is always eager to grow as a player!
Ryleigh Simon: Ryleigh made some really big plays for us in our tournament this month. She hustled on the court and showed aggression on the net. She is also always one of the first ones to finish during running and conditioning in practice.
