Kuna High School Student Going to the 2013 National Junior Olympics
Allison (Allie) Schiewe and her club volleyball team, Idaho Stars, qualified to attend the 2013 National Junior Olympics, being held July 2-5, 2013, in Dallas, Texas. The team recently won the regional bid-qualifying tournament in Salt Lake City, Utah, and has been competing in local and out-of-state tournaments against teams from across the nation, including Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Utah and Texas. Allie starts at middle blocker and plays in the 16-U Division 1 for Idaho Stars Volleyball Club. Her team consists of players from Mountain View, Rocky Mountain, Vallivue, Horseshoe Bend, Centennial and Timberline high schools. Allie is the only Kuna High School student playing for Idaho Stars.
Allie is a sophomore at Kuna High School. She plays varsity volleyball as middle blocker and outside hitter, is a 4.0 honor student, and is active in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, a member of the Kuna High School Chapter of National Honor Society, performs in choir and school musicals, and has also played tennis and basketball. She is the daughter of Pauline Schiewe of Kuna and John Schiewe of Hidden Valley Lake, California. Allie says, “I knew I was on a very good team from the start of our season. All the girls on my team are so talented and hard-working. I am so proud to have been chosen to play for Idaho Stars Volleyball Club.”
Her coach, Joline Armuth, states, “Having the opportunity to watch my team play in Junior Olympics has been a coaching dream and goal of mine for many years and I couldn’t be happier with the timing of this realization… It will be a very long season, but will be something the girls will never forget.”
