Athlete of the Week

CAROLINE KEDESHIAN

A senior at Palisades High and an Elite Beach Volleyball Club player, Caroline partnered with Malina Baker of the Santa Cruz Beach Volleyball Club to take third place in the Ruby Bracket at the 26th annual AAU Girls’ Junior National Beach Volleyball Championships at the Hermosa Beach Pier. Caroline’s stellar play at opposite hitter helped Pali High capture the City Section Open Division championship last fall but her specialty is on the sand, where she won the Dockweiler Open with Jacinda Ramirez on March 30, paired with Ramirez to take second at the AAU National Classic in Hermosa in May and finished ninth with Caitlyn Kye at the AAU Hermosa Beach Open/Super Regional in June.
