The best word to describe Riverheads' Kristen Moody is leader.
She plays soccer, basketball and volleyball, and she's the captain for every team.
"She's a big motivator," said volleyball coach Whitney Dove. "She was my captain last year, but this year she has really stepped it up and played the leader role. She keeps them calm on the court. She pumps them up, tells them what they need to hear."
It isn't just vocal. She also leads by example, as Moody was named the 2009 Shenandoah District Volleyball Player of the Year.
"I wasn't expecting that at all," said Moody. "When they said it, I kind of paused for a minute. My whole team was making fun of me because I stood there for a second."
"She can play any position," added Dove. "I had her set, she played middle last year. She's good with her hands on blocking, hitting and all-around."
Moody's ranked second overall in her class. She says getting inducted into the National Honor Society is one of her premier accomplishments.
"Here [at Riverheads it] is pretty much a big deal," says Moody. "It's not just academics. The teachers respect you, and they think you're pretty much a good person."
"But a three-sport letter winner, a 3.9 GPA, over 1400 on her SAT, now that's something for anyone, but it's remarkable that she keeps up with her school work as well as she does," says teacher Larry Hull.
