Greetings Prep Volleyball readers!
McKenna here, officially taking over for Sloane Green. She is a tough act to follow, but I’m up for the challenge. Seven years post-college graduation (okay, more like five and a half–Rome wasn’t built in a day) and I finally get to put my journalism degree to use.
My volleyball background includes a two year stint at nationally ranked–reaching as high as the program’s first #1 rank in 2010–Wayne State College in Wayne, Nebraska. In 2012, I transferred to the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN and helped the Tommies secure a Division III National Championship title.
Although my college playing days ended in 2013, volleyball remains a consistent part of my life; I served as an assistant coach for a successful Gustavus Adolphus College volleyball program for two seasons and am currently in my ninth year of coaching club. I truly believe the volleyball community is unmatched and couldn’t imagine a life without it.
I’m ecstatic to be joining the PVB team. From growing up playing club in Nebraska to coaching for multiple clubs across the midwest, Prep Volleyball has been a staple volleyball news source in my life. Please bear with me as I learn to navigate the backend side of the website. Because you know, Rome wasn’t built in a day.
I’m most looking forward to connecting with athletes and fans, watching competitive volleyball year round, and growing the sport of volleyball. My hope is to build an insane amount of relationships with players and coaches alike, so please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions, comments, concerns, ideas, advice. I’d love to connect via socials as well.
Commitments and rankings will top my responsibilities at PVB, so keep an eye out for those updates coming this week.

Not only does this career opportunity make 2021 a big year for me, but I am absolutely smitten about marrying my fiancé come late October (fingers crossed, because Covid). In case I’m unreachable at that time, please remember that I am most likely beachside with my new last name in tow. We’re still on the hunt for honeymoon spots, so send recommendations my way.
Please say “hi” if you see me wandering around any of the upcoming tournaments! I look like Prep Volleyball’s newest staff writer.
