State Farm Student Athlete of the Week: Rich Hill Tiger Abby Gayman

We are so excited to announce this week’s State Farm Student Athlete of the week Abby Gayman a senior from Rich Hill. Abby is an outside hitter for the Rich Hill Tigers volleyball team.

She was nominated by her coach Diane Smith. Abby is co-captain of the team and will be leading the tigers to districts next week. Coach Smith said “Abby is a very hard worker on and off the court. She is involved in many school activities in addition to volleyball and shows strong leadership skills.” Abby stated she would like to play volleyball at the collegiate level following high school. When asked what it takes to be an elite athlete she stated “it takes a lot of hard work on the court, learning to be patient and learning to listen to your team”. 

When we asked her to tell us one thing she has learned from sports that she can take and apply to her life she stated “It’s not what you say, but how you say it. You have to say it positively to have a positive outcome.” It was great to meet Abby and we wish her and the lady tigers the best of luck next week at districts.
