THE INTERVIEW


G: What is your team motto?

MF: Our team motto for this year was OHANA. Ohana means family and family means no one gets left behind or forgotten.

G: What one piece of advice do you have for freshman about being a successful high school student athlete?

MF: A piece of advice I have for underclassmen, is to manage your time wisely. To be successful you must separate school, friends, volleyball, and family, if you can do that your life will be a lot easier to manage.

G: What is your favorite highlight from this year?

MF: My favorite highlight from this year was, winning state, not only because we won, but because I got to win with my best friends. We had so many laughs, both on and off the court. I don't know what I would have done with out them.

G: What training habit has the most impact on your performance?

MF: The habit that has helped my performance the most is going in early, staying late, and going up to the gym on weekends. You can only expect to get out what you put in, so give it 100% everyday, and always expect the most of yourself.

G: What have you learned from your coach that you will never forget?

MF: I have learned from my coach to never give up on anyone or anything, because you never know what might happen.
