Alyssa Terry, Student-Athlete of the Week
High-school sports: .Swimming (freestyler and relay-team member, state-qualifer) and volleyball (middle blocker and hitter).
What I’ve done lately: Helped a couple of relay teams compete at the Class 4A Colorado meet.
Grade-point average: 3.7.
Why I attend Mullen: .The shadowing really pulled me in as an eighth-grader. I’ve felt like that ever since.
The best things about my sport: I love both equally, but if I have to choose, it’s volleyball. It’s a more-competitive sport for me. Swimming is more of a fun thing.
In my future: I want to play a college sport. I have colleges interested in me for rowing and another for volleyball. I’ll take official visits and will major in kinesiology.
Pre-Game ritual: I don’t think I’m superstitious. I just go and compete.
Favorite college team: I follow the California schools I’m looking at and my mom went to Missouri and we follow its football.
Why I play: I play for the friends I’ve made through sports and I just love competing and pushing myself as far as I can go, and getting the results after I push myself.
