Greensburg Trib Spotlight Female Athlete of the Week

Jessica Doranzio

School: Bentworth

Sports: Volleyball, basketball and softball

Class: Senior

Claim to fame: Doranzio recorded nine kills, three aces, and three digs to lead Bentworth to a three-set victory over Jefferson-Morgan in the first round of the WPIAL Class A playoffs Thursday. Doranzio recorded 13 kills and 19 digs against Bishop Canevin on Oct. 11.

"Well, we couldn't take them for granted," Doranzio said of Jefferson-Morgan. "We prepared ourselves well and practiced for the game."

What are your plans for college?

Not sure yet, but I'm looking to go to California (Pa.). But if I receive any offers from any colleges, I will take them. I will probably major in computer information systems or accounting. I love numbers and math. I think technology will be more important in the future than it is now. I might play sports in college. If I do play a sport, it would have to be volleyball.

Why volleyball?

Volleyball is my favorite because it's a team sport. I like the communication that goes on out on the court, and the sport is very competitive.

Who is your role model and why?

My dad, probably, because he comes to support me at all my games and he grew up playing multiple sports like me.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
