Summit Christian Academy senior Aidan Falcon is a middle hitter for the varsity volleyball team, but she can play all six rotations on the court. Being able to return to school and the volleyball court was a moment Falcon will not forget. 

“I was beyond excited because I wasn’t sure if we were even going to get a season. When I heard we were going to be able to play I literally jumped up and yelled 'YES!' in front of a crowd because I couldn’t contain my excitement,” said Falcon. 

It certainly helps when you play on a team full of teammates you enjoy being around and spending a lot of time with. 

“What I love most about my team and teammates is how we are able to work in practice while having fun. We know how to be serious enough to get work done and not cross the line into just goofing off,” said Falcon. 

Not only does she start for the volleyball team, Falcon also runs cross country, plays basketball and soccer. 

“I also play club volleyball outside of school. I sing in the choir and the praise band at my church. I am also president of NHS. I have a cousin who has down syndrome and I got to play with his team in the Special Olympics last year. Unfortunately, they are not getting to compete in competitions this year with partner athletes they are only going to host skill practices for the players because of COVID-19,” said Falcon. 

One of the biggest influences in her life is her mother. Always there to support her and give advice when necessary. 

“She works three jobs so she can put me in all my sports and attend all my games. She has helped me through the biggest struggles in my athletic career. When I ask her how I played I know I’ll get an honest answer and I can count on her to help me figure out what I did wrong. She learns the sports she doesn’t understand in order to be able to help me get better. I wouldn’t be the athlete I am today without her,” said Falcon. 

Her plans after she graduates high school include military service. 

“My plans after I graduate are to either attend the United States Air Force Academy or the United States Naval Academy. I am unsure of what career I would want to pursue because it would depend which school I get into or choose,” said Falcon.
