Keleni Fonua

Name: Keleni Fonua

Grade: 12

Sport: Volleyball

Position: libero/defensive specialist

Years Lettering: 3

GPA: 3.85

Stats: 2.4 overall passing average, 25 digs a match

Special Teams: Played on a select team at V club for 4 years

What do you think made you successful? I’ve always been determined to become better for myself and my team.

Why your sport? I love volleyball because it’s such a technical sport, it makes me work hard both physically and mentally.

Plans after high school: I am focused on getting prepared to serve an LDS mission and when I come back, if I get the opportunity to play at the next level, I would love to.

Pregame routine: Before games, I cheer for our sophomore and JV team because it pumps me up and enhances team chemistry. I also make goals for me to focus on, then I write a single word on my hand, so during the game I can look down and know my focus

Quote from coach: “Keleni is statistically our best passer and defender from our last game. She also works really hard and is a good teammate.”

Alex Tsai

Name: Alex Tsai

Grade: 12

Sport: Golf

Years Lettering: 2

GPA: 4.0

What made you successful? I practice almost every day and always stay focused on my goals.

Why your sport? I golf because it’s one of the few sports where you only have to rely on yourself to be successful.

Plans after high school: I plan to go to college and hopefully golf. I’ve gotten offers from a few different schools, University of Alabama is the best one so far.

Pregame routine: Before every tournament I listen to my favorite Pink Floyd song, Learning to Fly. It helps me stay focused

Quote from coach:  “Alex has shown what happens when you put in the work during the off season, and has been a key factor to making our team better this year.”
