Sacred Heart’s Avery Eshelman – Poll Winner Presented By Salina Tech

By Hayden Swope

Avery Eshelman of Sacred Heart was chosen as the Salina Chamber Athlete of the Month. Last season, Eshelman had over 200 kills and 25 blocks as an outside hitter. 

“I am very grateful to be one of the athletes chosen,” Eshelman said. “It is very cool to see my hard work pay off.”

Eshelman spent her time in the gym working with her team preparing for the season. 

“I have been preparing all summer by doing volleyball specific workouts,” Eshelman said. “One of my main goals for this year is to improve my passing to help my school team succeed.”

This season, Eshelman is ready to complete both personal and team goals.

“Some goals that I am focused on for this season are to have an above .500 record, and make a run at substate,” Eshelman said. “Personally,
I would still like to improve on my hitting percentage and number
of kills.”

After high school, Eshelman plans to attend college to continue her academic and athletic career.

“As of right now, my plans for after high school include studying something in the medical field and hopefully playing volleyball in college,” Eshelman said.
