    Athlete of the Week: 10 Questions with Ellie Pearson, LFHS volleyball

    September 18, 2017 By Erin Redmond, Sports Editor Sports, Athlete of the Week
    Ellie Pearson is a junior at Lake Forest High School and outside hitter for the Scouts’ varsity volleyball team. How did you start playing volleyball? I started in seventh grade with my middle school team. The coach was my gym teacher and she was like “Ellie, I think you’d be really good at this” and my sister had actually played, so I was kind of following in her footsteps.
