Comments from the Coach:

Tryouts are always a nerve-wracking time for freshman, and Elsa stepped in and led with grace.  Her sweet disposition automatically draws people to her, and she used this skill to work alongside the underclassmen.  She is always helpful with the net and prompt to assist wherever needed.  Elsa also put in a lot of time and energy improving her game over the summer.  Her arm swing has improved tremendously, and I am looking forward to her being the offensive threat we need!  While blocking is typically her strength, I think everyone should be excited to see her hit the ball this season! For these reasons, I believe Elsa is an excellent nomination for the PSHS Triple Impact Student-Athlete of the Week.
