This week's 1590 WAKR Female Student Athlete of the Week is senior volleyball player Mary Kate Harmody from CVCA High School.
Mary Kate says she enjoys being on the court with her teammates and coaches day in and day out.
"We have 8 seniors and I enjoy playing with each and every one of them, and I'm very thankful for the team that we have," she says.
As a three-year captain, she says mentoring the younger girls is something she takes seriously as well.
Balancing academics and and athletics is a challenge for any student athlete, but Mary Kate says that it's taught her a lot of life lessons.
"It teaches me how to get through the tough scenarios, so whenI'm out of season it becomes a little bit easier."
Mary Kate plans on studying nursing at either the University of Virginia or Ohio State University after graduation and also plans on joining the ROTC Program.
In her spare time, Harmody enjoys reading, volunteering, and spending time with family.
