Getting to Know Weatherford Volleyball’s Sophia Lonebear – Presented by More than Medicine

VYPE: When did you first start playing volleyball and what is your favorite part of playing it?

Sophia: I first started to play volleyball my 6th grade year and have played ever since. I played club volleyball for 2 years and am debating if I should play again after senior season. My favorite part of playing volleyball is whenever I get my blocks and score a point with it. I feel powerful, strong, and confident. As a middle, I also enjoy influencing the other team to hit into the net or hit out of the court.

VYPE: How has your season gone so far and have you accomplished your goals for the season; what were those goals?

Sophia: My senior season was good. I accomplished becoming a faster middle which was my #1 goal.

VYPE: What is the most fun you have had in the last year?

Sophia: The most fun I’ve had in the last year was probably the high energy with my teammates on the court against certain opponents.

VYPE: Who is your favorite teacher from any grade and why?

Sophia: My favorite teacher is from when I was a junior; her name is Mrs. Sanders and she teaches English III. She has such a big personality and is very funny. She would lighten up the energy in the classroom and lighten up my day as well.

VYPE: What is your favorite athletic memory?

Sophia: My favorite athletic memory was winning state regionals with my WIND club volleyball team in May 2022. Our last game deciding the championship was against HEAT, a club volleyball team that went undefeated all club season long in Oklahoma. I just remember the last point given to us, meaning we won. We all got so emotional and started to cry and jump in excitement. Our champion pictures that we took afterwards together will forever live in my heart. I even lost my voice that same day like I have never before.

VYPE: What teammate has left the biggest impression on you and why?

Sophia: One teammate who has left the biggest impression on me is probably Natalie Pekah. She was a senior middle when I was a junior middle. She had great energy on the court and could always make me feel better when I was down. She gave me many tips and many laughs. I have tried to carry on her legacy as a middle to maintain her same energy.

VYPE: Who on your team has the best impression of your coach and who says the funniest things during games?

Sophia: Saylor Paden has the best impression of Coach. Angela Nevarez says the funniest things during games. She has the talent to make anything funny and has been keeping the team smiling and laughing all season long.

VYPE: You can pick any place for a summer vacation, where do you go and who do you take with you?

Sophia: My summer vacation would definitely be the Bahamas just for the beach and the sun. I would most likely take my parents with me and one of my close friends.

VYPE: Here is your chance to say hello, goodbye or thank you to anyone you wish.

Sophia: Hello to all the future volleyball players coming into high school volleyball. My advice to you is to learn to respect your teammates and always give a smile to those around you. You never know if that smile could change someone’s day or season. Always have fun with everything you do and learn to also celebrate and let go of the mistakes. Goodbye to high school volleyball, goodbye to the politics, and goodbye to the drama. Good luck to those who stick around. I would like to thank everyone who has supported me through my school ball journey. I would really like to thank my parents who have been there for me through it all. They have bent over backwards for me to continue and have fun with this sport. They’re my biggest cheerleaders and I’m proud to have made them proud with my time doing volleyball.
