Being on varsity is what most high school athletes dream of and want to accomplish while playing their sport. Zach Zimmerman, a senior, made his dream a reality when he was just a freshman in high school. He has been playing volleyball since he was nine years old. 

“It has been amazing playing on varsity all four years of high school,” Zimmerman said. “I’ve been able to grow up throughout my time on the team and learn from all these amazing players who were older than me. I have had a lot of learning experiences during my time on the team.”

Zimmerman learned a lot during his time on the varsity team. He watched the upperclassmen when he was an underclassmen and from them, he learned how to be a good teammate and how to lead his team. Jack Stover, a junior on the volleyball team, has looked up to Zimmerman during his time on the team. 

“Zach is a captain and he is always making sure that we are calm,” Stover said. “He keeps us calm and makes sure that everyone on the team stays focused and ready for whatever we are about to do.”
