When I coached JV Volleyball at Claremont High school, I got to know Annalyese who was a setter on the Varsity team. Annalyese is an awesome girl and has a contagious personality. As a coach, I loved seeing her willingness to learn more and was not afraid to ask for help to figure out how to become a better player. After the high school season was over, I still got to see a lot of her because she played at the same club I coached at and we always practiced at the same time and I loved getting to see her grow into an even better player. I was thrilled when she contacted me to do her Senior Pictures but was a little bummed when I woke up on the morning when had planned to do our session to see no sun in the sky. That did not stop us though and we explored an area behind her house and then we might have “trespassed” on a mini winery where she said she always passes and had always wanted to take pictures there! Annalyese I wish you the best in these last couple months of high school and cannot wait to see where life takes you!
