WARRIORS ATHLETE OF WEEK Senior outside hitter one of Brainerd's strengths
Her career-best lifts are 335 pounds in the squat, 225 in the clean and 135 in the bench press. Those impressive totals have helped crown her the girls champion in the last two Sertoma Sunrise Warrior Liftathons.
That strength also helps outside hitter Courtney Ryan stand out on the volleyball court for the Brainerd Warriors. Weightlifting helps her hit harder and jump higher than many volleyball players.
