Seneca’s Ellie Barnes – Senior Athlete of the Month – Presented by Hutchinson Community College

Ellie Barnes, a middle hitter for the Seneca Indians volleyball team, said she and her team made the best of their summer practices, and now work is paying dividends during the season. 

“Being a team was going to be a huge part of most of our wins,” Barnes said. “Each individual on our team has their own strengths that helps us when we need to put the ball down. With a record of 4-3 to start off the season. If we compete and do what we’re capable of this will be a very promising season.”

Playing volleyball is something Barnes said started early and has developed into a passion for the game. 

“I fell in love with volleyball when I started playing in second grade,” she said. “I love playing because all of the hard work and the long practices pay off when it comes to game time. The feeling you get after every win is awesome. It takes the whole team to be successful and I love watching every single one of us grow together.

“As a senior this year, I love getting to support and give tips to the younger girls on the team,” she added. “I feel that it’s very important to have relationships with all of them and show them what being a leader is like. I like to encourage these girls to work harder every day and showing them what a team should look like.”

Barnes said she also loves supporting the other sports teams at Seneca and does her best to make it to every Friday football game.
