On Minnesota One 16-1 team, Outside Hitter Kayla Nye stands out as a terminal attacker who can hit with range from either pin, and is relied on to attack aggressively in both the front and back row. As a Sophomore Outside Hitter at DeLaSalle High School, Kayla played Outside Hitter and was a primary passer for a 22-4 DeLaSalle squad that finished the year as the Section 5AA Runner-Up. No doubt Kayla will be looked to in 2017 to score points on a team who graduated 8 seniors following their 2016 season.
Q: How many years have you played Varsity at DeLaSalle?
A: I have played varsity volleyball at DeLaSalle for two years – as a freshman and sophomore. I’m entering my junior year in the fall of 2017.
Q: What do you enjoy the most about volleyball?
A: Volleyball allows me to spend time with a great group of friends while allowing me to participate in a team sport. Volleyball is a game that involves a team – not an individual to be successful. It also helps me meet new people and develop and learn new skills.
Q: What are your plans beyond high school for volleyball?
A: I plan on continuing to play volleyball in college if the opportunity is given to me.
Q: What are your strengths as a volleyball player? What things are you working to improve at?
A: Two strengths I bring to the game are power and the ability to close a point. I am often looked to by my teammates as the go to person to finish the play. I can also read the other team’s offense and adjust my play to close the point.
Q: Do you do any other volleyball training/development besides Minnesota One and High School?
A: Besides club and high school volleyball, I participate in many camps over the summer to further my skills as a player.
Q: Are you a multi-sport athlete? How does being a multi-sport athlete help you in both sports?
A: I used to play softball along with volleyball up until the spring of 2017. Being a multi-sport athlete helps me in both sports by being able to adapt more as a player.
