Hey Cougar Fans!
It has been a super long time since I have been able to talk to you all, so let me update you on everything that has been happening! I have decided to change my major to secondary education in english and literature arts. I enjoy reading and writing with a passion, and this way I will be able to do it everyday of my life.
Another huge update on my life is that I have officially decided where I am going to play volleyball at the next two years. The past few months I have been going on visits and trying to decide on this huge decision. I have decided that I am going to continue my education and athletic career playing volleyball for Illinois Wesleyan University! I am super excited for this opportunity and can not wait for the next two years. I know that you all have not heard from my best friend and fellow teammate, Jackie Beaver for a while, so I will update you on her exciting news. This semester Jackie moved to Grand Rapids Michigan and has been attending Ferris State. She has also decided to play volleyball there!
Sadly, this will be my final blog for ICC volleyball. With that being said, I would like to thank some people that have entered my life along the way. I would like to thank TR for being there for all of us when we are injured or even when we just need to smile. Another person who makes everyone smile when we walk in the room is Trish. Trish is another one of our coaches that always knows how to keep us positive and looking forward to the next play. Janelle has especially been important in my career because she was also a middle hitter. Thank you Janelle for always helping me become the best middle that I can become.
I would also like to say thank you to Sam for pushing us everyday at practice and always making us work our hardest. Our athletic trainer Mike also deserves a lot of credit. Without him we would not be in the healthy conditions that we are all in now. Emma, Reilly, and Nicole for coming in on their own time to help us at practice. Also a huge thank you to our manager Jamison for coming to practice every day and playing against us to push us to be better.
My final thank you goes out to Sue Sinclair. The past two years have been the best years of my life. You introduced me to my best friends and brought so many wonderful people into my life. I am so grateful for the opportunity that you have given to me. I am excited to see where you take your teams in the future. Thank you for everything that you have taught me on and off the court. I owe the past few years to you. Thank you to everyone who has impacted me these past two years.
For the last time, Jessica Norris #12
