e best part of his season so far was getting
to play Olentangy High School because some of
his closest friends are on that team. His biggest
goal is to try to be a leader on his team.
“Being a freshman on varsity and playing all

From cheerleader to setter in one year
Freshman Jena Sturgill explains her struggle in the transformation from becoming a ds to a setter
“ e most di cult part was de nitely learning the rotation and what type of sets are better for certain posi-
tions and people,” said Jena Sturgill.
She’s a freshman who goes to Berlin High school and has the challenge of trying to make her team trust her
while learning a new position. She hasn’t had an easy time over the summer she participated in team camp
and throughout this camp coaches pushed her to be the best she could be almost to the point where it broke
her. Over the last 3 months, she trains everyday with her team and in games she also has to get every second
ball to make sure she gets the sets high enough while also being the most positive on the team.
“Another struggle throughout the season has been when my team got quarantined and I couldn’t play for 10
plus days,” said Sturgill.
She began to say that when she came back the biggest struggle was not getting practice for 10 days and she
felt her skill set and stamina went down. e days leading up to the rst game were hard; she was pushed but
overcame it and began to get better everyday.
“I feel a certain sense of accomplishment every time I step o the court, said, Sturgill”
e feeling she expressed was a sense of joy that she feels no one else can understand. Its passion and excite-
ment overcame her nerves knowing she did something that she felt she could mess up.
“It feels amazing to be a part of such a family. It’s almost like my volleyball family knows me more than my
own,” said Sturgill.
Walking into the locker room a er a hard practice is de nitely tough cause everyone is tired but there’s al-
ways that one person that comes in to pick everyone up which really makes us a family.
