My twin sister and I made a difficult choice to transfer high schools for our senior year to help our volleyball careers. We had no idea what was to come. We left behind all of our friends with the goal of going to a new school and winning a state championship.
We worked so hard to get to that goal. We ran miles, got pushed to our limits, even sustained some injuries on the way. Our team, St. Thomas Aquinas, became extremely close. By the end of the season, we were all a family.
Our coach had to leave because of an emergency. This gave us the drive to win the Class 8A state championship game for her. My twin and I also won it for each other. It all felt like a dream. We played like we had the same mind. We signed scholarships to attend different colleges and will never play volleyball together again.
Do not take anything for granted, because it will end eventually. Our joint volleyball career is coming to an end, but our sisterhood will always be forever. – Mallory Barash,
