WEEK #25: RUBY S.
Please tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Ruby Sorra, I am 15 years old in Grade 9 at Birchmount Park Collegiate (Scarborough)
I love playing all sports and trying new things, but I am currently playing competitive basketball, indoor volleyball and beach volleyball. During a usual season, I train every night and compete every weekend. Last summer I won U16 Beach Nationals while on the Ontario Beach Volleyball team. For basketball, I have been playing U19 OBA since I was 11 years old, and before that I started playing rep at age 5. In Grade 7 my basketball team won city finals and in Grade 9, my High School basketball team went to OFSAA. In school I try to play as many sports as I can, and at my school last year I got female athlete of the year as well as the year before that.
What is your favourite part about sport? Why?
I love the competitiveness while playing against others. I love it because I am a very competitive person myself with everything, whether its playing cards or just a race to see who gets the front seat with my sisters. I love channeling my competitiveness onto a basketball or volleyball court and using it to win games.
