Senior Standout: Fort Benton's Bailey Hulme

Posted: Updated:

"It feels so good to have people doubt you and then come back and play just like I did before I was injured," said Bailey Hulme.

Last year, doctors told Bailey Hulme she was never going to play volleyball again after she tore her ACL and fractured her femur.

"I felt it pop. When we went to the emergency room the doctor said that there was no way it was going to need surgery. But it turned out that my ACL was torn and I fractured my femur. It was rough to hear that and at the time they said my volleyball career was over but i didn't really want to listen to them," said Hulme.

Bailey didn't listen to them. She went through 6 short months of rehab and is now back on the court quicker than doctors ever expected and playing better than ever.

"You would never know that she just had knee surgery. She's worked really hard to come back and she's just been really good leader. Without her we're just not as good, we're not. She's our leader," said Christa Hardy, Fort Benton volleyball head coach.

Bailey's injury was one of the toughest challenges she's ever had to overcome. But now that she has "jumped" NAT over her biggest obstacle in sports, she says it has helped her in all aspects of life.

"It's given me motivation by I can set my mind to something and actually be able to do it like for other things in life whether it be going to college or getting a job or whatever," said Hulme.

Bailey was tested - physically, mentally and emotionally. But she passed her toughest test and silenced any doubters she had.
