Hi, I'm Lexi McLanahan and I have been playing volleyball for as long as I can remember. As an 8 year old, my parents would drop me off at our local YMCA, where I learned to play volleyball from Sen Thach. Turns out he coached on the Korean Women Olympic Volleyball team! Little did I know as a small kid, he was teaching me skills and determination through repetition and tears.
This club season (2023) I'm playing for Happy Volley Academy's 17u Elite team coached by Chris Rose. I also play for Hollidaysburg Area Senior High as a 3 year starter at Libero, just passing through 1,000 digs. My heart is in playing defense, being on the court with my teammates and winning!
My love of volleyball is deep, and I desire to play in college, while getting a degree in business. I also ski in the winter and play golf in the summer. Most days I can be found with a volleyball in my hands bouncing it off a wall - trying to get better everyday!
