HE: Who is the most influential person in your life?
KC: The most influential people in my life are my parents. They provide the best perspective when they give me advice and love me unconditionally. I think combined they have only missed three of my volleyball matches in the past four years, and it means so much to me that they are always there to support me.
HE: How old were you when you first played organized volleyball?
KC: I was in first grade when I first played organized volleyball. I played rec and after several years I moved into club.
HE: Why did you choose to play volleyball? Why do you like volleyball?
KC: I chose to play volleyball because a lot of the older girls I looked up to played. I like volleyball because there are so many components that go into winning a game. Not only does each person on the team have to perform, but they also have to be smart and mentally strong.
HE: Most memorable match and why?
KC: My most memorable match was my junior year when we got to host regionals against Wiggins. The gym was packed full and the student section was going crazy for every point. The energy of the game and how hard we had to work to win made it a game I will never forget.
HE: If you had to choose one word to describe your fellow senior, Ava McCall, what would it be?
KC: Ava is very loyal and she does not give up on things easily. She will work hard up until the very last point and it inspires everyone else on the team. She brings the best energy to the team and I always know I can count on her. It is so fun to be able to play volleyball with my best friend.
HE: What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
KC: The best advice I was ever given was “make the people around you better.” This means serving your teammates and working hard for one another.
HE: Favorite superhero
KC: I am not a huge superhero fan, but I would choose Spiderman.
HE: Have you ever met anyone famous? If so, who, how, where?
KC: Technically, I did not meet her but I was really close to Taylor Swift at her concert last summer (it was the best night ever).
HE: Plans after high school?
KC: I am not sure where I will be attending college yet but most likely out of state. I plan to play volleyball in some form, I am just not sure what that will look like yet.
HE: What’s the first thing you would buy if you won a million dollar lottery?
KC: The first thing I would buy with a million dollars is a new computer and more lottery tickets.
