Athlete of the Week: Alexis Miller
EUGENE, Ore. - On the volleyball court, South Eugene’s Alexis Miller is a leader.
Having played varsity for the Lady Axe since her freshman year, that wasn’t always the case.
“I feel like in four years, I’ve kind of changed as a person and volleyball has changed me a little bit,” Miller says. “I’ve kind of gone from being more timid to being this leader on the court.”
“This year she’s got more confidence than I’ve seen her,” Head Coach Danielle Glenzel agrees. “She’s aggressive. And that’s what we want to see.”
SEHS is a top-10 team in the state in 6A Volleyball, and the possibility of making a run at a state title, not lost on the senior Middle Blocker.
“We’re the highest we’ve ever been ranked before in my four years here," Miller says. "I’ve never been to state before and I really want to get to the state tournament.”
