From the Sideline

“McKenna Peters deserves to be athlete of the week because she has started off the season as a leader on our team. Her work ethic shows both in the classroom and on the court. She finished her last semester sophomore year with a 4.0 GPA and started off her junior year continuing to balance practice, games and school work. On the court, she has been a stand out player this preseason with 99 digs and has a serving average of 97 percent with over 120 serves. McKenna is a huge part of our teams success and deserves to be recognized.”
