My name is Marin Mackey and I am a hardworking, enthusiastic volleyball player. I got pulled up to varsity my freshmen year for playoffs and have been a starter on varsity for the last two years. I have played club volleyball as an outside hitter for four years but transitioned to middle hitter on my high school team. I feel confident playing both positions although I really enjoy playing outside where I can play back row and get more passing opportunities. This year I was nominated for first team all conference and all-state honarable mention. I have had the amazing opportunity to play in three state championships and thrive on competivie matches!
Knowing that I am capable of playing volleyball in college makes me even more passionate for this sport. I believe a strength that I have that makes me a good teammate, player and athlete is I have the ability to remain very focused in high stress game situations. I do my job to the best of my ability and will encourage teammates that are making simple errors due to nerves for example.
As far as choosing schools I am looking at northwest or west coast states but would be very open to going anywhere. I am open minded about colleges and just hope to find a school that fits me best. I am very interested in graphic/interior design or criminal justice.
