We traveled to Appleton City today and are so excited for this week’s State Farm Student Athlete of the week Senior, Ellie Bock. She is the captain of the Lady Bulldog varsity volleyball team. She lead the team last week with 43 kills, 8 blocks and 8 aces. She was nominated by her coach Jamie O’Farrell. Coach O’Farrell stated “Ellie is our team captain and leader, she has proved her strong leadership skill every practice with her work ethic and commitment to helping younger classman. Ellie excels in the classroom as well.
She is an active member of student council, FFA, Honor Society and FCA. This last week she co-lead the FCA with movie night and Wednesday morning prayer at the flagpole.” When we asked Ellie to describe what it takes to become an elite athlete she stated “you have to trust your coaches and be willing to listen to them.
You also have to work with your team and give 110% at all time.” We asked her to tell us something she has learned through playing sports that she can apply later in life and she stated “you have to trust and have faith in your team, you can’t do things alone”. Ellie hopes to attend college after graduation and major in Ag or Animal science. It was an honor to meet Ellie and we wish her and the Lady Bulldogs the best of luck!
