Ken Wunderley profiles Freeport volleyball player Zoe Pawlak. Read his story below.
Zoe Pawlak has experienced the thrill of victory during her high school volleyball career. She also knows the agony of defeat that comes with losing in the playoffs a lot sooner than expected.
Pawlak will soon begin her senior year at Freeport High School with hopes of experiencing the thrill of victory one more time.
"I've coached a lot of talented players in my 13 years at Freeport, but Zoe is the best," Freeport coach Tom Phillips said. "It would be great to have Zoe finish her career with another WPIAL title."
Pawlak has been a fixture in Freeport's lineup since her freshman season. The Yellowjackets were seeded No. 2 in the WPIAL Class AA bracket that season, but were upset by Ambridge in the quarterfinals.
