Caroline is a senior captain of the Varsity Girls Volleyball Team. From the first day in August, she has been a leader both on and off the court. Off the court she is always one of the first players to help set up and take down the volleyball net and poles. On the court she is a hustler who never gives up and if she makes a mistake she keeps her head up, stays positive, and makes sure she nails the next play as well as encouraging her fellow teammates to do the same. Her leadership and passion has resulted in the Girls Varsity team finishing the month of September with a 4-2 record going into the heat of the season. She is the Female Athlete of the Month for September.
