Lady Dino senior receives class 3A volleyball honors

Sun Advocate reporter

Hard work can pay off in the end. After a long season filled with ups and downs, Carbon High senior volleyball player Amanda Freestone can certainly attest to that theory.

Last week Freestone was named to the second team all Class 3A.

Head coach Bob Potts said in her three years playing volleyball at Carbon High, Freestone quickly grew into a leader on the squad.

"This is a well deserved recognition for her," Potts said. "It's a great reward for her hard work although I wish she was named to the first team."

Freestone averaged 4.06 kills per game during her senior season helping lead the team to a sixth place finish at the state tournament in October.

Potts said Freestone was very determined to get better as a player and did a great job motivating her teammates to succeed.

Three years ago, Potts said he can still remember seeing Freestone walk in the gym for the first time.

"As soon as she walked in that door, I said 'wow, a 6-footer," he said.

Other than volleyball, Freestone plays on the basketball team and the track squad.

Potts believes Freestone could play volleyball in college, if she chooses to take that path.

"I'll always remember Amanda for her determination to win and how badly she wanted to succeed."
