Favorite MVHS Volleyball Memory: Beating Torrey Pines at the La Jolla tournament my junior year
I would like to thank my parents for supporting me throughout my High School experience and giving me the tools I need to succeed.
I would also like to thank my coaches and teammates for making the sport worth playing. There’s no other team I would rather play for as we were all so close and it felt more like a family than a team.
MV Volleyball has been a big part of my life. Without it I would’ve never found myself in the volleyball world. I wish the best for the upcoming team and hope you guys can win the title that we never got the chance to chase.
