Through her four years as a Jasper volleyball player, Maddie Edwards sure left her mark on the program. She reached 1,000 kills throughout her four-year high school career while her teams won conference and sectional three out of the four years while she was playing. Edwards was also named to the Class 4A All-District team as a senior and will also be remembered as one of Jasper's most vocal players on the court.

A Q&A with Jasper alum Maddie Edwards who will be playing collegiate volleyball at Hanover College.

What was the biggest factor into your decision to play sports collegiately? I have wanted to play collegiately since I first started volleyball, it's been a lifelong dream of mine.

What stood out about Hanover College over the other schools that you visited? What stood out to me in the small, homelike atmosphere. Everyone supports each other and the campus is absolutely beautiful.

During your time at Jasper, who or what do you feel most prepared you for playing sports in college? My travel coaches definitely prepared me the most in critical moments of a play, they taught me how to be calm and collected when you get in the rut of the game and you can't seem to get out.

What was your biggest accomplishment during your time at Jasper? Making the All-District team in Class 4A.

If you could describe your high school athletic experience in one word, what would it be? Remarkable
