Ivy Allen, 10th grader, started out this year with a change of lifestyle, after previously attending STAB. She holds a unique background lots of people would love to hear about. Ivy has participated in a wide variety of athletics like soccer and even danced for 12 years. Ivy was adopted from Russia; her parents brought her home to a house full of boys to grow up with. She plays field hockey here at Covenant and is committed to play at the Miami University in Ohio.

Her transition to Covenant wasn’t hard, she says, because she already knew people from travel field hockey. She has lots of friends, and it seems as if she has always gone to Covenant. Life at home also seems unique, her being the youngest out of her siblings and the lone girl. She has three older brothers to watch out for her, Cooper who is 18, Jake who is 19, and Erik who is 25. On her free time she draws and does handstands on surfboards. “Handstands are easier on surfboards,” Ivy says. Handstands on a hardwood floor are hard enough. Now she wants to do them on a board on water? What a distinct ability to have.

At the age of five, she lived in Turks and Caicos for a year, a beautiful island located in the Bahamas 90 miles north of Haiti. Ivy also takes care of her two dogs Raylan and Marley when she isn’t occupied with handstands, field hockey, or brothers.
