Q&A With Kylie Fehlman
D9and10Sports: How did you first get involved in sports and did you like it?
A: I started playing softball when I was 5 years old and my family always supported me through all of my sports and I absolutely loved the game. I started playing volleyball in seventh grade at first I was very hesitant and struggled but my coach saw something in me. I started at the bottom, playing every once in a while on the middle school junior varsity team. Then in 8th grade, I was a middle school varsity starter and was also asked to play with my head coach travel ball team. I started playing with 16 years old and work my way up to playing with 18-year-olds in just a few games. I knew that with a lot of hard work and determination the I would be able to be a freshmen starter, so I worked as hard as I could.
