Hi, I'm Jess

HS Class of 2023, Outside Hitter

I am a 6'1" outside hitter and play national club, high school, and beach volleyball. I was honored to be named one of the top 20 players in the U.S. by the Junior Volleyball Association as a member of the JVA All-National Team. I was excited to be named to the AVCA Phenom List and receive the 2020 & 2021 JVA AthLeader award for outstanding volleyball performance, leadership, and academic excellence. This spring our Barrington High School (Illinois) team won the conference championship (11-0, 14--2) and I was honored to be named captain, Conference Player of the Year, and All-State by Illinois Prep Volleyball. In the past I have played 6 years of travel soccer and 4 years of AAU basketball, and qualified for the Junior Olympics in 100m hurdles and long jump. My goal is to attend an excellent academic university and play college volleyball.

I continuously work to improve my game by adding in upper and lower body strength workouts, cross training (rowing machine, VersaClimber, slide board, bike, 42"box jumps), and daily mental workouts. The mental workouts consist of positive identity statements, visualization, and the keys to being a difference maker on the court.
