Congrats MSA Volleyball

The volleyball program at MSA began in 2011 with seven players in the local recreational league. By 2014 there was enough interest in forming a team within the SCISA league in order to play in a more competitive environment. The girls have improved tremendously over the years, with many of them playing in leagues in the offseason in order to continue their skill development. It has been great to see them reap the benefits of their hard work. In addition to their hard work ethic they have learned other valuable life skills such as perseverance, trust, how to lose with dignity, to never give up and to believe in themselves. These girls have become more than just teammates but great friends.

This is the first year that the team has been comprised of only high school students and they qualified for the SCISA State Tournament in Myrtle Beach last weekend! The team consisted of 4 freshman, Julianne Cross, Carolina Lindquist, Elli MacDonald & Emma O’Brien; 1 sophomore, Lexi Merriman, and 3 seniors, Mary Claire McGuigan, Morgan Merriman & Emma Rogers and they were coached by Bill Cross & Aaron MacDonald. The girls lost their first match, but bounced back to win their second and third matches. The team represented our school extremely well in such an intense environment (a 100,000 square foot gym with 16 volleyball matches going on at the same time).

Our three seniors will be missed for sure as they all earned end of the season accolades. Morgan Merriman, outside hitter, was named as a Class A Region 2 all region honorable mention. Mary Claire McGuigan, setter, was named a Class A Region 2 all region player. Emma Rogers, middle hitter, was named Class A Region 2 all region player and Class A All-Star. She will represent the “North” team in the All Star match which will be held on Saturday, October 28th in Sumter.
