Recruit Profile
Positive , engaged outside hitter with excellent court sense. Agressive, and driven athlete with a strong focus on academics.

I am passionate about volleyball and academics, which is why I love Georgetown Day School. I love the challenging rigorous academic environment and contributing to my team's success.

I started playing volleyball at age 12 and I have been playing competitive travel volleyball for the past five years. I have played varsity volleyball since my freshman year. I am a six rotation outside hitter and I lead my GDS team in kills and serves. As a sophomore, I was selected to the DCSAA All-Star State Team (the first sophomore in school history). I was recently named the top ten players in Virginia rankings class 2024. I have a 3.8 GPA and my team received the AVCA Team Academic Award. I plan to study English and pursue a career in law. I am currently playing with Virginia Juniors U16.

I possess an energetic spirit and will always bring my best to the court. I am very well-rounded and coachable. I am looking forward to bringing my energy and talents to a competitive collegiate program!

I have known Aaliyah since she was in fifth grade when she first started playing volleyball. It was easy to recognize the natural talent that she has. This natural talent was the reason she was invited to join our varsity team workouts, which can be intimidating, but she handled it gracefully, eager to learn and develop. By the next season Aaliyah was a major contributing member of the varsity team. Aaliyah is a player coaches dream of. She truly is a team player and has a big picture mindset. She is a leader that leads by example, and speaks with grace and wisdom when encouraging teammates.

Aaliyah is an extremely hard-working student-athlete who is constantly asking questions and looking to improve her game. She is an aggressive, physical player who makes her presence known at the net with a powerful arm swing and varied shot selection. Aaliyah is an assertive and effective communicator with a positive, upbeat attitude - she's a great teammate and an extremely fun player to coach. We are thrilled to have her as a a part of our program and I can't recommend her highly enough.
