“One of the happiest things I can remember lately is when [I was] at a volleyball tournament. After playing three games, we had busted our butts working to win the point and it was tied at 27. We ended up winning 28-27 and it came down to that last point. Everyone was so happy and really excited in the moment [that] we were able to win the game. I’m a middle hitter for Parkway Lightning Volleyball Club, and I’ve [been playing] for five years. [My favorite thing about] volleyball is the people I’m surrounding myself with, because these people are very uplifting and they push me to be a better version of myself, not only [as] a player but as a human being.” – Gabriella Black, 10
