Libero | DS
Lake Highland Preparatory School
Hi my name is Nakayla James and I have been playing volleyball since I was 8 years old. Volleyball has always been in my life since my older sister played it growing up. Ever since I saw her playing, I knew I wanted to be just like her. I am passionate about working hard and being the best I can be on and off the court. Throughout the years I've played as a middle, outside, and more recently as a libero/ds. As an athlete, it is important to always want to win and every time I go out on that court, that is exactly want I want to do. Being a leader and working together as a team has brought some of my greatest accomplishments, one specifically is winning a state championship with my high school team. Academics has always been a priority to me, knowing that it will always be there. Juggling high school ball, club, and academics is hard especially at my age. But with hard work, dedication, and help, I have been able to maintain a 4.0 GPA. I am confident my passion and dedication will lead me to achieve my goals.
