I have a strong 4.2 WGPA / 3.8 UWGPA at a nationally ranked high school. I challenge myself in the classroom as much as on the field. For example, as a sophomore I'm taking two math (Algebra & Geometry) classes and eliminated my study hall in order to prepare for the SAT's. While my friends think I'm crazy for doing that, I know I have a long term goal of playing in college. I want to be prepared and sometimes that takes sacrificing to achieve your goal. My enjoyment from doing well in school is as strong as my smooth crafty play on the field. I'm a vocal leader with heart & grit, that leads thru work ethic and loyalty. As a tenacious & disruptive defender, I play relentlessly on the attacking player. After getting possession of the ball, my head is always up looking for my teammates up field. I'm a strong believer in transitioning and moving the ball quickly into the attack zone. I also have the stamina, length & quickness to shut down the best attack player on the opposing team, all game! I'm always open to improving and fine tuning the nuances of my game that make the difference in pressure filled critical moments! It will allow me to stay calm and not panic, even with opposing players all over me.

Jenna DeRosa

Oct 7, 2020

Kalliopi has been a varsity contributor for the past two seasons at Amity. She comes to practices and games each day ready to work hard and improve her skills. In the off season, she also does the same through any opportunity she can find and her club season. She is always positive, and always willing to accept coach’s feedback. As a defender, she has quick feet and a good read on the ball. Her leadership on the field is evident to her teammates and coaches. She can anticipate and intercept passes and moves the ball quickly up the field when she has possession. Most importantly, she maintains a positive attitude at all times and encourages her teammates and displays sportsmanship and a high level of respect for her opponents and officials. She is an integral part of our team and would make an excellent addition to any team at the next level as well.
