Buhler High School’s Blythe Adkins is a three-sport athlete competing in volleyball, swimming and track and field. She’s also in the SADD Club, CHOP and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. She first started attending FCA meetings in the sixth grade.
“My dad got me involved because he leads FCA at the high school. I was also surrounded by teachers who love God that encouraged me to go at middle school,” said Adkins. “FCA is a great club to talk about God and how you are walking through life with him. You are surrounded by people who love God and you share the same passion for sports or clubs. I also enjoy being able to plan the meetings or the lessons with my dad. It is fun listening to him share his faith with people in the club.”
Just like her FCA peers, Adkins has played with many of her volleyball teammates since middle school.
“We have stayed friends and our friendships have grown. We all have a tight bond and I think that makes us a tough team,” said Adkins. “My favorite moment has to be the first time I got to play varsity and we were up against our biggest rivals. I was so nervous, but I loved every second of it.”
Her future plans include becoming a nurse, but she is undecided on which college she would like to attend.
