Bailey started playing volleyball after receiving encouragement from her sister.
“My sister played in middle school and she wanted to teach me how,” Bailey said.
When asked what inspires her to train and compete she said, “I want to play college volleyball and we want to go to the state tournament this year so I am training to achieve those two goals.”
