With Fergus Falls ending its volleyball run Tuesday in Wadena against Pequot Lakes, single-sport athlete Kaylee Ridler took some time out of her busy schedule to reflect on the season and talk about what she sees for the future of the program.
Plans after graduation: Attend NDSCS.
Field of study: Undecided — possibly photography.
Hobbies: Hanging out with friends and crafts.
Q: The volleyball season just wrapped how do you feel the season went?
A: Toward the end when it came to the semifinals we really pulled through, we really put everything into gear, put everything together and that’s when we clicked and showed that we were a true team.
Q: Being that you’re a single-sport athlete how do you feel about your athletics career coming to an end?
A: Sad, but lately I’ve been going through a bunch of memories. There’s just so many different memories from volleyball coming back to me from over the past years and it has me thinking, ‘Oh, volleyball’s over,’ and it has me reflecting about different thoughts from during the season.
Q: What do you see for the future of the volleyball program?
A: Well, we have a couple of girls that are coming in ready to go, they’ve been playing varsity for a while so I think it’s going to go pretty far.
Q: How would you like to be remembered as an athlete here at Fergus Falls?
A: As someone who is truthful, that’s for sure.
Q: What advice do you have for young athletes?
A: Pick something, pick a position or whatever it is and really stick with it, go hard on it.
