Misty had received many recruiting letters about three hundred colleges including Stanford, Hawaii, Arizona, University of the Pacific and California State University - Long Beach (Misty 92). She chose to go to California State University. Misty learned that working hard in volleyball lead to many wonderful opportunities. If Misty May-Treanor had not tried, she would not have had the college opportunities that she had and would not be where she is today. In addition, after Misty won the NCAA championship, Misty’s physical therapist Valinda Hilleary Roche asked Misty “to play with her in a pro beach volleyball tournament” (Misty 113).
There was never a moment when energy seemed to escape Nicole, and it definitely seemed to rub off on her teammates. When speaking after the game, she explained “We all know that if one us gets flat, then the rest of us will get flat, and that’s how you lose games. We want to win.” With an attitude like that, it’s no surprise that her presence on the floor carries such a heavy impact. Freshman Erica Costa would end up scoring the final point of the game, while showing some real resilience after seeming a bit frustrated with her play early on. Not too many athletes have the ability to recover from mistakes made earlier in the game, and focus solely on making up for it.
I have been playing sports just about as long as I have been able to walk, and over the years of playing these sports i have become pretty passionate and competitive with everything i just want to be the best at it we could see who can hold their breaths the longest and i would be upset if i lost. Around my 10th grade year i decided that i wanted to play basketball and just basketball so i decided to quit all my other sports i was involved after the seasons were over. Ever since i made this decision basketball has been my plan A i have planned on attending a college and playing basketball at that said college, then once my four years is i hope on getting an opportunity to continue my basketball career somewhere else god willing. All my life i understood that a plan B would be needed but never really thought too hard about it. Around 9th grade i wanted to be nurse but never really stuck with it.
When I was in sixth grade and I didn’t get honor roll for 1 of the 3 semesters my parents were disappointed in me. They told me that school is going to help me in the future and that they will let me do school activities if I get good grades. The next couple of semesters I made honor roll and was able to join the basketball team from 6th grade to 8th grade. I also got to join sports teams in high school. Even though I lived far from my high school my parents took me to practice and back home every day.
