FORT WAYNE (21Alive) - The 21Alive/Parkview Sports Medicine Scholar Athlete of the Week for Sept. 5 is Marta Bleed of Blackhawk Christian High School.

Bleed, a junior, has played volleyball for three seasons for the Lady Braves, and says volleyball has played a big role in being successful in life.

"I think sports are great, because they help you learn how to interact with a group of girls," Bleed says. "If you're going to do anything, give 110 percent. Go all out. If you're going to do it, you might as well give everything you have. I think that's a good motto for life, too."

Bleed has a 3.9 grade point average, and ranks in the Top 10 in her class.

She's undecided on her college plans, but will enjoy her time in high school and see where her play on the court may lead her.
