The Wrangler: When and why did you start volleyball? 

Finch: I started in seventh grade because a bunch of my friends did it, so I thought I’d give it a try! 

The Wrangler: Who has inspired you the most outside of school? 

Finch: My aunt definitely has had the biggest influence on me because she played all her years of high school, and really wanted me to try it. 

The Wrangler: Who has inspired you the most to play within the GR volleyball program? 

Finch: I think that I inspired myself; since I played club, why not do school too?!

The Wrangler: What do you feel is your greatest challenge this year? How did you overcome it? 

Finch: My greatest challenge I saw this year would have to be the way people were treated. People will come in and out of your life, but the best ones will stay. Focus on yourself and you will really see the good people in your life and their influence on you. 

The Wrangler: What would you say to a new GR player or someone who is just starting to play? 

Finch: Don’t let someone’s influence hurt you or the way you play; make your own decisions and block out the negative comments! 

The Wrangler: What are your plans for the future? 

Finch: If I get the lucky opportunity to play in college, I will, or I will study in the medical field. 

The Wrangler: What other hobbies or interests do you have outside of sports and school? 

Finch: I love to hang with my friends on the weekends! 

The Wrangler: Which strengths do you believe you have that make you a great athlete? 

Finch: I believe my greatest strength that I have that makes me a great athlete is that I always do my best in what I’m doing. 

The Wrangler: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given from a coach? 

Finch: Believe in your own ability; you will never know what your boundaries are until you’ve hit them.
