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.
