ATHLETE IN THE SPOTLIGHT

KATIE JACKOWSKI

What is your motivation for playing volleyball?  My motivation for playing volleyball is that I love to play and spend time learning and growing with my team.  Volleyball has taught me a lot of life lessons and I have made a lot of friends from different schools.

Who is your mentor in this sport?  My mentor for volleyball is my old club coach, Lynn Bontrager.  She taught me so much and is one of the reasons I fell in love with the sport.  I look up to Kelsey Robinson, a pro volleyball player, because she has a great attitude and is an amazing player.

What is your favorite memory playing in high school? My favorite memories are from my freshman season.  We beat Chesterton in 5 sets after losing the first 2.  We also won sectionals that year.

What is the best advice your coach gave you? In one way or another, all of my coaches have taught me to always be the best I can be and never stop trying.
