Spotlighting Lady Red Devils Volleyball

by Shinoahe Lee & Devon Maupin, SHS News Writers

Springville’s Lady Red Devils Volleyball team has been on a winning streak, taking home victory in the last nine out of ten games, only to fall to Skyridge.  Tonight Springville has a rematch against Skyridge at home, 6:30 p.m.  Come support our team!

Megan Nusink plays defense on our varsity team.  She always gives 100 percent into each practice; and, one of her goals is to continue improving her skills. 

“I joined volleyball for the fun of it.  In each game I’m filled with excitement and adrenaline,” said Nusink.

Her after high school plans include attending college and possibly serving a religious mission in hopes of going to Europe.

Varsity player Mikkele Gallier said, “I love the intensity of the sport.”

Ramzie Farr is destined to go “Farr” as she believes the key to success is teamwork.

“Teamwork is one of the things I enjoys most about the sport,” said Farr.

Farr joined the Volleyball team as a branch off from playing on city league. She wants to take her education a step further and would enjoy a game of volleyball on the beach. Her ultimate goal? Winning state by working as a team. Farr is always a star player you can count on.

Kaitlynn Bradley plays on the varsity team.  In the future, she sees herself coaching younger girls with their volleyball skills and plans on attending Utah Valley University. Bradley began playing volleyball by joining a city league as well as her mother introducing her to the sport. Her goals are to continue playing and enjoying the sport and plans to do that by her continuation of taking practice seriously. Bradley is a player anyone can count on, even if it’s off the court.

Lauren Alleman, who plays varsity mid-blocker, is a sensational member of the team. In ten years she sees herself attending Utah State University, being a volleyball coach, and an Art teacher as well. Alleman has always loved volleyball.  She plans on continuing to play well with hard work, practice, and the help of her team members.
