Collegiate High’s Avery Elofsson – Volleyball Poll Winner Presented By Advanced Physical Therapy

By Hayden Swope

Avery Elofsson, a volleyball athlete from Collegiate, was voted the Wichita Small School Volleyball Poll Winner. Last season, Elofsson had a 95 percent serving average and a total of 80 blocks at the net. 

“I am very grateful that I was voted a Wichita Small School Volleyball Poll Winner,” Elofsson said. “To be honest, it was just an honor to be on the list.”

Elofsson spent the preseason in the gym working as much as she could, always finding things to improve. 

“I have been preparing by attending everything I can,” Elofsson said. I believe that every time I go to the gym is an opportunity to get better and improve. As for a weakness I wanted to improve on, I have been working to get better at defense. Pushing over on the block, reading the hitter, and digging.”

With the state championship on her mind, Elofsson is ready to show off her and her team’s talents on the court, all while learning to be a better leader for her teammates. 

“A goal for my team is to of course win state, but to also leave everything on the court,” Elofsson said. “So when the season is over, we can be happy with the improvement, progress, and outcome we had together. As for personal goals, I would like to beat my number of blocks from last year, improve on defense, and learn how to be a better leader for my team.”

While still deciding on exactly what to do, Elofsson is interested in many different career paths. 

“Right now for college, I am interested in going to a service academy,” Elofsson said. “If I don’t do this, I’m still going to college, but I’m not sure where yet. For career options, I would like to be either a pediatric surgeon or OBGYN, or some kind of engineer.”
