Our Athlete of the Month is Sofia Dittman, a club and junior high volleyball player at Sonoran Trails Middle School. Sofia has been training with Drew Bohannan, Sports Performance Director at Cave Creek, for the past few months. Drew said he nominated Sofia because she has become stronger, her lifting form is perfect, and she is always working hard and has a smile on her face.
“Drew has helped to strengthen my core and improve my overall conditioning, which has helped me stay strong during my volleyball clinics and all-day tournaments,” Sofia said.
Sofia is the middle hitter/blocker for her teams and has been playing for over 2 ½ years. Last year was her first time playing competitive club and sand volleyball.
Her sister, Jess, played volleyball in high school and on club teams, which inspired her to play. Her favorite volleyball player is Haley Jacob, the libero from the Oregon Ducks. However, she just graduated, so Sofia will probably have a new favorite player this year.
