Tori Puryear prides herself on her volleyball team at Madison County High School. Easily heard from the court to the stands, she is the most vocal on the team. Tori has also received recognition for her play on the volleyball court, as she was named 1st team All-District, and 2nd team All-Region B last season. Her talents don't limit her to the court, as she also is a standout goal keeper on the soccer field, earning 1st team All-State honors last year also.

Tori manages success in the classroom as well as in athletics. She maintains a 4.3 grade point average, and is ranked eighth in her senior class. She also plans to attend college and play volleyball at the next level also, but has not committed to any college yet.
