Sloan Dobson

2025

My name is Sloan Dobson and I am a Sophomore here at SHC. My main interests are volleyball, math, computer programming, physics, and anything of the STEM sort. All three of my older brothers also play volleyball and most of my interest stemmed from them. I played on the varsity team last year and plan to try out again this year. I also play on my club team for Sláinte and have played club volleyball since sixth grade. This past summer my team went to the Boys Junior Nationals in Vegas as well as other tournaments around California! My interest in math led me to take the American Math Competition (AMC) test last year and I plan to take it again this year in November. I was not able to pass the test but I hope to be able to this year!

Easy Stats

Taking volleyball statistics is hard. First and foremost, what are volleyball statistics? Well, many different statistics in volleyball are tracked, such as aces, service errors, kills, hitting errors, the pass rating, and many more. After a season of taking stats for the girl's varsity team here at SHC, I realized that keeping track of all these different things accurately in a short time span is difficult, and wondered if there was an easier way.
