Elyria High School
Jocelyn Eldemire shows the true definition of sportsmanship. Right before her junior season started, she was in an accident that caused injuries that are preventing her from being able to play during our regular season this year. She has handled this difficult situation extremely well, considering the circumstances. It has not stopped her from being a leader for the Pioneers. She is still at practices and matches giving her teammates feedback and being their biggest cheerleader. She also still contributes to team duties such as stat taking. Jocelyn always has a positive attitude towards all coaches, teammates, officials, and opponents. Jocelyn not only shows her sportsmanship capabilities off the court this season, but she has shown these same qualities when she plays on the court as well. When not focusing on volleyball Jocelyn, a member of the Urban League and Student Union through Early College, volunteers at Second Harvest and Project Ready.
