Addison Goree was chosen as the Wichita Collegiate Athlete of the Month for October. Goree plays volleyball and soccer for the Spartans. “My experience at Collegiate has been great,” Goree said. “The teachers and faculty are amazing and so supportive of every student that goes to WCS.”
Goree said if she were to recommend Collegiate to a prospective student, she would talk about the family-like atmosphere throughout every grade level. “I would tell them how no other school will care for and support you like Collegiate will,” Goree said. “The community that has been built around WCS is incredible.”
During her volleyball season, Goree has felt like she has emerged as a player for the Spartans and she credits that to her coaches and teammates. “It has to be one of the most supportive teams I’ve played for,” Goree said. “I have personally started to prove myself and who I am through volleyball, and that wouldn’t be possible without the help from my teammates and coach.”
Goree recently joined French Club at Collegiate and while she played soccer last season, she might instead focus on club volleyball this spring.
Being just a sophomore, Goree does not have a focus on a career, but she is already starting to think about college. She has begun the recruiting process and hopes to play volleyball out of state, with Texas and Colorado being the preference.
