Freshman Daniela Morales was nominated by the coaching staff as Player of the Week for her match against Frisco Legacy. Morales has played volleyball since she was in second grade, and she is now a freshman starting on the varsity team as an outside hitter. Morales commented on what it meant being a starter on varsity as a freshman saying, “It’s a humbling experience being able to play with upperclassmen, and I’m always being pushed to be more disciplined.” Morales stood out on September 26 at a game against rival Legacy Christian. Throughout this season Morales has acquired sixteen kills, twelve digs, and three serving aces. However, Player of the Week isn’t all about statistics Morales always seeks to honor McKinney Christian as well as Christ through her athletic expertise and determination both on and off the court.
