Makenzie Travis, Beloit High School Makenzie Travis of Beloit was chosen as the Hog Wild Performance of the Month for October. Travis recorded her 2,000th assist in the Trojans match with Ellsworth on October 5th.
“I am very glad that all of my hard work has paid off,” Travis said. “Reaching 2,000 assists is a goal I never thought I would make. This accomplishment would not have been possible without the coaching staff that I possess. I have had the best high school coach, Brandy Paul, who has pushed me to be the best player I could possibly be, which I am very thankful for. I would not be where I am today without her.”
Travis has always enjoyed volleyball, as she made the varsity team as a freshman. But she made the most of getting better during the pandemic last year.
“When school was canceled due to COVID I went to the gym around three days a week with my dad and put in the work,” Travis said. “My dad along with my coach has pushed me to my limits and made me a better player.”
Travis is also involved with National Honors Society, history club, future med club, science club, student council, and B club. She is also the vice president of the National Honors Society and the secretary of the science club. She wants to play volleyball in college, as well as getting her degree in nursing so that she can be a Neonatal Intensive Care nurse.
