Jill's comments: "My mom and dad got us involved [in racquetball]. I've been playing for six or eight months. I like serving the best. It's a physical and aggressive sport. Volleyball is my favorite sport because I get to play it at school. Racquetball is second, though."

Ryan's comments: "I've been playing since I was 7. I've been hitting the ball since I was 6, but started playing games when I was 7. Baseball is my favorite sport. I played tee-ball for two years, and now I'm in my second year of baseball. I'm a pitcher and play first base. Last year, I hit one home run, but would like to get more this year."
