Flaska caps ‘dream year’ with Hill commit

— By GREG WEBB

BROCK — So now that Brock grad Braylee Flaska has completed an active, stellar and quite memorable career as a Lady Eagle student-athlete, culminating with her recent commitment to attend classes and play volleyball at Hill College, one might imagine she will face a summer of leisure and restful inactivity ... nothing could be further from the truth.

A walk across the stage in cap and gown last Friday marks the beginning of a flurry of pursuits that may well find the former Lady Eagle catching her breath only when sitting down for her first day of class at the Hillsboro school.

Flaska will celebrate the end of her prep school days this summer with a trip ‘across the pond’ to check out a couple of European capitols—but then she really gets busy.

A week or so of sand volleyball is in the cards, followed by workouts with her new college team as they get ready for their fall campaign. A July volleyball camp is in the offing before packing and trekking off to Hill for classes. 

Flaska, who was looking for a junior college to extend her education and athletic career, was cool to some of her prospects until she spoke with the coach from Hill.

“Coach [Samantha] Fish called me and really wanted me to come for a visit,” Braylee said. “She was just so cool. You can tell she is happy to be where she is and help her players get to the next level after JC.

“She also has a solid sand [volleyball] background, so she can pretty much help me with everything.”

Flaska, who frequented the halls of Brock High School beginning her junior year, was prolific at more than just volleyball — good enough at basketball to help the Lady Eagles win two state titles during her tenure. And then, of course,  there was the Most Valuable Player nod in the state championship game.
