“[Winning state in both sports] is just the greatest thing,”she said. “Of course, you want to do that and you dream about it, but it’s hard to think it would ever really happen.
But when it does, it’s just like the best thing ever.”
But volleyball is Braylee’s passion.
“Volleyball has just always been so much more fun for me, whether I am playing in matches or practicing,” she said. “And that was sort of a problem for some of the volleyball colleges [during the recruiting process], because they thought I might not be ‘all in’ for volleyball.”
The forward-thinking Flaska has her mind’s eye set for life after Hill College, as well. She has intentions to advance her athletic career, and her business degree, just a few ticks west of Brock.
“ I would like to hook up with a four-year college, hopefully in California,” she said. “Out there, I would be closer to sand volleyball [at a higher level], as well as the fashion industry.”
Braylee plans to use her business degree as a jumping-off place for a career as a fashion designer.
With a proven penchant for multi-tasking already, e.g., a pair of state titles in a single year, Flaska may well have little trouble conjuring fashion ideas ... even while her toes may be tickling the sand.
