PALMYRA, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- The game of volleyball runs in the blood of Fluvanna senior Isabelle Garrett.

"Growing up with both coaches as parents, it came to me naturally, she said. 

That's because her mom, Christi Harlowe, has coached the Flucos for the last 23 years and the last four with her daughter.

"To watch her grow into her own over the years has been amazing," Harlowe said. "She has filled the role of setter. She's filled the role of outside hitter. She's one of the best defenders on our team." 

That's not just mom speaking. The accolades speak for themselves. Garrett has made the All-Jefferson District team the last two seasons and leads the team this year in nearly every statistical category. What makes that more impressive is that is doing that all while dealing with scoliosis. 

"It's especially a challenge as a hitter and having practice every day. It does get sore and it's definitely an injury I have to take care of on a regular basis. I don't want to quit playing because I'm not tall enough, so I've just really put in the work for that." 

Garrett is listed at 5-foot-8, according to the Fluvanna County volleyball roster, but Harlowe says that the condition has cost her "two-to-three inches, height-wise." 

"They attribute volleyball to the athlete that she is," Harlowe said. "We really are very thankful that she found volleyball because volleyball has very much helped keep the scoliosis very much in check." 

Her impact extends beyond her stats on the volleyball court. LAST SPRING, SHE HELPED ORGANIZE THE SCHOOL'S FIRST-EVER SUICIDE PREVENTION WALK, RAISING OVER $1200 for the Connor Strong Foundation. 

"Being able to lead that and plan that was actually really amazing," Garrett said. "It was really nice to see all the people at our school come and support us and be there and be present."

"We always want to develop good human beings," Harlowe said. "Kind people. Strong women. To see her come into her own and head up a suicide prevention walk that was so successful for the first time in our school's history was fantastic as both her coach and her mom."
