Loyal, energetic, inquisitive and vocal. These are a few of the requirements coaches expect their upperclassmen to possess. For Junior Lady Hawks Volleyball player Sophie Akin, these characteristics are evident on and off the court.
Akin has been playing volleyball since the sixth grade.
“Coming into middle school I didn’t know what sports I was interested in yet,” Akin said. “So, when all of my friends decided to try out for the volleyball team I thought why not, and fell in love with it the first year.”
