It’s a competitive world in high school volleyball, but Bellaire’s Emily Hawes seems to have figured it out.

A senior at Bellaire High School with a 4.75 GPA and captain of the volleyball team, Hawes has the respect of her coaches and teammates, but it didn’t come easy.

“Definitely a lot of time management,” the player said. “Learning as you go, and sometimes, taking a step back from like social stuff to make sure your work and volleyball is going as planned.”

However, volleyball and school are not her only activities.

“She volunteers whenever she has spare time, which I’m not sure when she’s got spare time because she’s always playing high school volleyball, club volleyball or taking lessons,” Coach AP Clarke said. He has worked with Hawes her entire four years of high school.

Hawes is an active member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at Bellaire High School with a leadership role that puts her time management skills to the test. And now all of this work throughout high school has caught the eye of a division one university. Next fall Emily will make the move to Oxford Mississippi to be the libero at Ole Miss.

“Oh that was a dream come true, like all my friends going through college apps right now, but finally finding the school where I loved the program and they wanted me just as bad, it was amazing,” the player said.

With a scholarship ready to go, all that is left is to complete her season.
