Minneapolis’ Cameron Cleveland – Athlete of the Month Presented by Scott Ausherman American Family Insurance

By Travis Sloat

Cameron Cleveland said she plays three different sports for the Minneapolis Lady Lions, but she loves volleyball the most. 

“I fell in love with the game in the seventh grade,” Cleveland said. “It was actually the first time I had ever played. We have a great potential to be a very successful team this year. Our spirits are high as we prepare for the next match. A personal goal I have this year is to make the all-state team. And for the team, our goal is to have an above .500 record and win the league.” 

Since this is Cleveland’s senior year, she said she’s been focused on making sure she leaves a legacy as a leader in Minneapolis. 

“I love being the role model and a leader for the team,” she said. “I know a lot about the game, so it’s good to be able to help out my teammates. This year I’m an outside so I have to always be ready. The last two years though I have been a libero and was always told to be the loudest on the court. My libero experience and my knowledge about the game has really helped me be the best leader I can be. I’m always ready to step in when something is going crazy and help the hitters out when trying to find a hole in the defense. “

After high school, Cleveland said she wants to attend a four-year university and major in pre-med. She wants to get a physician assistant degree or become an orthopedic surgeon. In her free time, she said she likes to go on long walks or runs, lift weights, and watch movies.
