(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Brittany Waters wasn’t always a threat on the court.
“She went from being just a weak, kind of timid player, to a very aggressive, dominant player,” said head coach Jolene Bute.
And nothing makes that more clear than consistently averaging 20 kills per game.
“She’s been very dominant at the net; very confident in what she is doing right now,” said Bute.
But according to Waters, it’s not too hard to do.
“It’s really easy to stay consistent when your passers have good passes and your setter gets you a good set,” said senior Brittany Waters.
Waters is close to racking up 1,000 kills on her career, which is a huge accomplishment but to her it’s the little things that separate the good from the great.
“Every game I really focus on giving one hundred percent serving and work on my passing and just really watch the hitters,” said Waters.
“She worked a ton on her form and she has just been a great role model for all the younger athletes,” said Bute.
To perform at such a high level a lot of time is spent with her teammates in the gym, which is a good thing because I guess you could say she likes them.
We’re all best friends. We do everything together after school. We go to all the football games together, we just hang out a lot,” said Waters.
Somewhere between all that she’s found time to earn a 3.9 in the classroom.
“I just go home and study, use the bus time to study if it’s an away game,” said Waters.
“She spends a lot of weekends studying and doing what it takes to be a smart student-athlete,” said Bute
The season will end in a few weeks and Waters might not leave the sport all together but she will leave an impact as a knight.
“It’s going to be hard to fill her shoes next year,” said Bute.
