Flatirons News Archives
Lauren Kidney 13 Regional Kukuna: Lauren just celebrated her 13th birthday and attends Angevine Middle School in Lafayette. Her favorite subject is Math, favorite animal is the Fox, and she’s an aspiring Engineer. In addition to being our athlete of the month, Lauren is an accomplished gymnast and violist. Lauren’s off court activity is inspiring to all.
On the court, Lauren is one of our Captains and leads her team by example. As our Libero, there is no ball she lets drop without diving for, or encouraging her teammates to go after. Her dedication to the sport of volleyball is far reaching and apparent every time she is on the court. Lauren also has memorized every position’s rotations so as to be ready to go in for anyone. This makes Lauren our nominee for Flatiron’s athlete of the month.
Alex Konczalski 13 National: Alex is a great team player. She always comes to practice wanting to work hard and improve. At power 3 she had 10 aces, 13 kills (with a 43% hitting efficiency!!), and 1 block which was outstanding. Her performance was definitely a testament to her dedication to the team and practicing with intention. I love her fire on the court and the way she leads by example. She is a huge asset to the team and has so much potential to succeed!
Autumn Torrez 14 Elite: Autumn’s improvement in defense in particular is astounding. She is able to change her form with seemingly very little effort, and she works hard at practice with a determination that can only be powered with a personal desire for self growth. She looks like she belongs out there and has earned her spot on the court. I have never seen even a hint of a bad attitude from her and am very proud of Autumn’s progress so far.
Krystal Salaman 15 Regional Nahae Kai: Krystal came into this season determined to improve and has always given 110% every time she has stepped on the court. She has been a true leader of our team and always has a positive attitude that carries our team, which is one of the many reasons she has been selected as our team captain. One of my first impressions of Krystal was during a team drill we did that involved us working as a team cooperatively. She took the lead and started instructing her teammates and suggesting ideas that would make them be more successful. It was one of those moments as a coach that you really value because I didn’t have to instruct someone to take the initiative, she just did it as a natural leader. She never gives up and sets the bar very high for herself and her teammates.
Grace Langlois 15 Elite: At 14 years old, Grace is an outstanding athlete and one of our captains. She works incredibly hard at practice, always giving 110%. Grace is always interested in getting better and learning more. At tournaments she does a great job of motivating her teammates, and excelling under pressure. Grace is a great role model for her teammates and they all look up to her. I can always count on Grace.
Jaelyn McClure 16 National Pukiki: Jae gives 110% on any given day. She is constantly working to improve her game and works hard to touch every ball. As a libero, she has developed as a leader on the team and received an overwhelming vote for Captain. When the 17’s team needs players for their Power tournaments, Jae never hesitates to volunteer and will play any position. Her smile is infectious and her positive attitude keeps the rest of the team motivated. Jaelyn is the epitome of what a Flatirons player should be.
