Amelia Renner has worked to be noticed on the volleyball court ever since she was in middle school.
Last fall, she got more attention than she ever expected, but not for the reasons she had hoped.
“We had a match at Evergreen, and when I entered the gym, I had part of the football boys from Evergreen saying to me ‘Are you that girl in the video?’ ” Renner said. “And I’m like ‘Yeah, that’s me.’ ”
The video. Those who have seen it won’t soon forget it.
It shows the play last September — a play like hundreds Renner had made as a member of the Prairie High School volleyball team — that ended her high school volleyball career, threw a monkey wrench into her senior year and altered the course of her future.
