EDMOND — All-Edmond volleyball 2012

Player of the Year

McKenna Qualls

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.
