CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - This week’s Wyoming News Now Prep Athlete of the Week is Cheyenne East Volleyball’s Elysiana Fonseca. She is a part of a Lady T-Birds team that is (17-5) this season and that has won seven of its last ten matches.

The junior leads East in multiple statistical categories. She is number one on the team in blocks (82; 20 solo & 62 assisted), aces (21), and kills (89).

“I just am determined to make my goal in life which is to play beyond high school so I’m really determined to win our games and just get better as [an] athlete myself,” said Fonseca.

Elysiana is a leader on the court because of her play but her head coach said she is also a pleasure to be around every day.

“She’s extremely funny. She has a great personality,” said East Volleyball Head Coach Nicole Quigley. “She’s always the one that walks in the gym and makes everyone smile and, like I said, she just always brings good energy and good vibes to the team and is always super positive and that’s great to have someone like that on a team.”

In addition to volleyball, Elysiana also plays basketball and runs track at Cheyenne East. She said she is not sure where she wants to go to college to play volleyball yet, but she is open to staying in Wyoming or going out of state.

Congratulations and good luck to Elysiana Fonseca, Wyoming News Now Prep Athlete of the Week.
