Female Gamer of the Week: Carllee Bishop of Hurricane High School

Teays Physical Therapy Center, Inc. & The Putnam Herald are pleased to present this week’s Female Gamer of the Week award to Carllee Bishop of Hurricane High School.


By Anna Davis, ATC, Administrator of Fitness Operations

Daughter of Pete and Joyell Bishop, Carllee has been involved with volleyball for approximately 8 years. “It’s something that I love, it’s fast paced which means you always need to be alert and focused.” Carllees’ primary position for the Hurricane Redskins is libero. Being a libero, Carllee is a defensive specialist. She is responsible for passing in serve receiving situations, ball control, and getting “digs” in order to keep the play alive. “It seems like a lot to do but it’s like second nature to me,” said Carllee.

This past weekend the Hurricane Redskins volleyball team played Parkersburg and Spring Valley. The scores against Parkersburg were, 25-15, 25-18, 25-23, with Hurricane coming out on top with the win. The game against Spring Valley was a hard fought loss for the Redskins, coming in with scores of 25-13, 25-18, and 25-14. However, they did not let this put them down. The Redskin’s Volleyball team is ranked number 2 in the state and will enter the state tournament for the first time on Friday. “I would love for us to win,” stated Carllee, “It’s something that I have always wanted, and it would be a great accomplishment for us.”

“Carllee is such a natural leader,” said her coach Allie Pennington. “She goes above and beyond for her team.” When Carllee was asked who inspires her most she quickly responded with, “my coaches and my parents, they push me to be my best and support me in everything that I have ever done.” Once Carllee graduates she plans on attending WVU Tech and majoring in nursing, all the while continuing to play the sport she loves.
