Athlete of the Week: Valeria Rodriguez Fernandez

Valeria has been consistently impressive with the volleyball team all season.

A well-rounded player, this Grade 12 student-athlete from Mexico City controls the back court, is not afraid to finish off points with her cross-court hits and has used her imposing serve to become the leading point-getter on her team throughout the first month of the season. As experienced as they come, Valeria was actually one of the founding members of the girls volleyball program back in 2017, and her veteran leadership qualities brightly shine through in practices and on game day. In fact, in the words of one of her teammates, Val serves as the “mom” figure on the team, which is a testament to how much her teammates respect her. Congratulations, Val, for being named the Athlete of the Week!
