Q&A with Grove’s Abbi Dyer -Presented By Mark Lee – Shelter Insurance

VYPE: When and how did you first get into playing your sport?

Abbi: I first started playing soccer when I was about five years old when my parents put me on a little league team. As I got older in elementary school, I played on a recreational team with my closest friends, so I loved it. Once I got into high school, I started to get more serious about it and play for more than the fun of it.

VYPE: What has your sport taught you that you use in your daily life?

Abbi: Cross country has taught me how to have grit within myself as an individual. Having that discipline to keep going is what pushes me to my potential. As for soccer, it has shown me how to sacrifice for my team and play for something bigger than myself. The individual discipline has enhanced my ability to do more for my team.

VYPE: Why are you passionate about your sport?

Abbi: I am passionate about my sport because the ability to compete gives me something to make of myself. With that, it is done with teammates that I call family. It also challenges me to become better physically and mentally which is always something I appreciate.

VYPE: Who inspires you and why?

Abbi: My dad is one of my biggest inspirations because he is so compassionate about his faith and relationship with God. He lives out a life glorifying God and shows me how to do that as well. I look up to him as someone I want to become.

VYPE: What is your favorite part about being on a team?

Abbi: My favorite part about being on a team is the accountability. If I mess up, my teammates are there to clean it up. Even in practice, we have the accountability to keep working hard and to stay motivated. Accountability is crucial to having success as a team.

VYPE: What is your favorite part about representing your high school as an athlete?

Abbi: My favorite part about representing Grove High School as an athlete is putting standards to our name. Whether that’s in the culture or statistics, I want to represent the Ridgerunners with purpose and hard work.

VYPE: Who is your favorite teacher from any grade and why?

Abbi: My favorite teacher is my English teacher, Mrs. Guthrige. She is compassionate and patient with her students but gets the job done. She is always positive and puts a smile on my face. We have a fun and loving relationship which makes me love coming to her class.

VYPE: Are you involved in any other activities?

Abbi: I am involved in the Student Council, National Honors Society, and other types of clubs, such as Interact and Character Counts. These range from fundraising to community service clubs. Being involved keeps me busy and social while giving back to my community.

VYPE: Here is your chance to give a shoutout or say thank you to anyone you wish.

Abbi: I would like to thank my family for being my support system, my coaches for pushing me to the best of my potential, and my principal, Mr. Kruetz, for believing in me inside and outside of athletics. These people have been an incredible foundation for the culture at Grove High School.
