Holly states, “High School athletics have been a huge benefit to me because they have allowed me to get to know people in my school that I would not have otherwise gotten to know.  You grow up so close to your teammates because you are with them all the time.  The friendships that I have built through sports are something that I will never give up.  School sports has taught me how to organize my time and my school work.  It is hard to balance friends, school and sports and it has taken self discipline to accomplish a working equation.”
