EDMOND — All-Edmond volleyball 2012
Player of the Year
Memorial senior outside hitter
“No one works harder than McKenna Qualls,” Memorial coach Natalie Murray said.
That hard work showed as the three-year starter, who started at outside hitter on the Bulldogs’ 2010 state championship squad, put in 376 kills, 362 digs and 54 aces in 2012. Murray also called Qualls her best serve-receive passer.
Qualls’ experience and leadership helped Memorial to a 31-5 record and a berth in the state championship game.
“We have a lot of hard workers at Memorial, but she set a precedent that every underclassman can look to and strive to be like for years to come. It’s not just what she did on the court, but how she was an inspiration for our girls that are coming up,” Murray said.
Qualls has committed to play for Oral Roberts University in Tulsa next year.
North senior middle hitter
The All-Stater made all-tournament teams at Union, Stillwater, Santa Fe’s Heather Harkness Invitational and at the state tournament. She brought in 29 aces, 217 kills, a .447 hitting %, a 53.6 kill % and 51 blocks.

The Wolves’ senior leader broke a 20-year Santa Fe single-season record in digs with 620, and chipped in 55 aces. She made All-State and has verbally committed to play at the University of Oklahoma.
North senior outside hitter
After making an astounding comeback after being injured her junior year, she led the Huskies to the state semifinals, made All-State and ended with 12 aces, 173 kills, a .210 hitting %, a 37.9 kill %, 2.07 passer rating, 12 blocks and 83 digs.
Santa Fe junior setter
After missing the first half of the season while helping the U.S.women’s sitting volleyball team win a silver medal at the London Paralympics, she came on and was a huge part of the Wolves’ strong second-half finish that put them in the state quarterfinals, with 424 assists, 147 digs and 34 aces.
