"A school record holder for most digs in a game at 42, Alexis Fliehman handles anything thrown her way.

"She's always been a very determined child, athlete," said Madisonville North Hopkins Volleyball Coach Cindy Fliehamn. "I've never had to force her to do anything. She puts her mind to something and she will get it done."

"It's been 9 years that I've played volleyball and looking back it's crazy to think that I was 4'2" young girl just always having a ball in my hand and I'm pretty grateful for it because has gotten me to where I am," said Madisonville North Hopkins Senor Alexis Fliehman.

When it comes to her academic life, the senior has had a special incentive to do well in school. Her father promising her a new car if she held all "A's" her entire schooling career.

"I did eventually get my car and even after I got my car I picked up why it's important and it's always been him," said Fliehman. "He's drilled the saying 'what's important gets done' and I've made sure that education is number one and sports after."

"She's someone that everybody wants to work with," said Madisonville North Hopkins Chemistry Teacher Leif Nethery. "Whenever we are doing group work or labs everybody enjoys being around her she's, just got one of those infectious personalities."

When she's not digging up kills, Fliehman is making spectacular plays on and off the court. A role model student athlete in the Madisonville community.

"I remember being those young kids and really looking up to the older people and it feels really good to be that person now and knowing that I'm making an impact in their lives and trying to guide them in the right path," said Fliehman.

"I think she can do anything that she wants to do," said Nethery. "She is a very driven young lady and whatever she sets her mind to do she will accomplish it."

"The sky's the limit for her and I just wish her the best," said Fliehman.
