THE CENTRAL VALLEY VOLLEYBALL TEAM IS OFF TO A QUICK
5-0 START THIS YEAR.
AS DALLAS HAMMER TELLS US IN THIS WEEK'S KIMMEL ATHLETIC
SHINING STAR, ONE SENIOR IS LEADING THE WAY FOR THE
BEARS BOTH ON AND OFF THE COURT.
DALLAS HAMMER: "FOR THREE SEASONS KARA NITTEBERG HAS
PLAYED FOR THE CENTRAL VALLEY BEARS VARSITY VOLLEYBALL
TEAM... NEXT SEASON, SHE HOPES TO CONTINUE HER CAREER
AMANDA BAILEY: "She does a lot of the work on her
own, you know trying to get a college scholarship
kids are marketing themselves, and Kara's definitely
done a lot of that work on her own."
KARA NITTEBERG: "There's a website that we got into,
it's NCSA, and it kind of like, lets colleges look
at your profile and watch videos of you."
HAMMER: "NOT ONLY IS
KARA TRACKING DOWN COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS,
SHE'S SERVING AS ONE OF THE CAPTAINS ON THIS YEAR'S
NITTEBERG: "We all kind of rely on each other to like
keep the team focused and in the game and at practice,
and we get to interact with the freshman volleyball
team and the JV and we bring everyone together, even
C squad, we bring everyone together so we're just
one big family."
HAMMER: "AFTER ADVANCING TO THE STATE TOURNAMENT LAST
YEAR, KARA LOOKS TO LEAD HER FAMILY OF BEARS DEEPER
INTO THE STATE WEEKEND THIS SEASON."
BAILEY: "She's going to be crucial, she's been playing
libero for us, she can hit, she can play right side,
you know she can do anything for us, so having a kid
like her on our team is definitely valuable."
NITTEBERG: "It's going to be a lot harder since UHigh
moved up to a 4A, it's probably going to be our bigger
competition, and so just hoping to make it back to
state, and place higher than we have the last two
HAMMER: "WITH KARA'S WORK ETHIC, SHE MIGHT FIND HERSELF
A SCHOLARSHIP AT THE SAME TIME THE BEARS MIGHT FIND
THEMSELVES TAKING HOME SOME HARDWARE, WITH THIS WEEK'S
KIMMEL ATHLETIC SHINING STAR, DALLAS HAMMER, 700 ESPN."
