Get to know Adrienne!

What sport do you participated in?

I have played indoor and beach volleyball, basketball, and track and field!

What is your favorite sport?

My favorite sport is volleyball

What is your favorite competition so far? Why?

My favorite competition so far has to be GJNC (Girl’s Junior National Championships), because it is typically the last tournament of the year and requires a bid to qualify– therefore, it feels like a culmination of the season’s hard work. Along with the excitement of a different city (they change locations each year), the competition is tough and we get to play teams from all over the country!

What is your favorite thing to eat before you do your event?

CHEEZ-ITS

What is your favorite movie?

My favorite movie is Sing 2!

What injury did you have?

I had knee and shoulder injuries

What did you learn from recovering from your injury?

I learned about the importance of discipline in recovery, listening to my body’s pains, and the importance of taking a step back!

What advice would you give an athlete that is recovering from an injury that wants to get back to sports?

I would tell them to value the present– although you may want to jump back onto the court or compare yourself pre-injury, remaining present-minded will help you find the patience to recover.

What is your favorite quote?

My favorite quote is: “Always work hard, never give up, and fight until the end because it’s never really over until the whistle blows” from Alex Morgan

Who Inspires YOU?

My parents and my teammates!
