Freshman Micaya White has quickly established herself as a star this year for Texas Women’s Volleyball. She leads the team in points, with 413. She also leads the team with 366 kills. This season she has been a 5-time recipient of the Big 12 Freshman of the Week award. This ties a school record set by Michelle Kocher in 2008.
Micaya went to to my highschool, so I have witnessed her talents for many years now. For those that don’t know her, she is an outstanding athlete. Standing at 6’1″ Micaya is a powerhouse and gets amazing velocity on the ball. She was a highscool All-American, and it seems that her talents have certainly translated nicely into the college game.
With exciting young players such as Micaya and strong recruiting classes every year, the future of Texas volleyball looks bright! The Longhorns are poised to continue to be one of the top 5 programs in the country, and show no signs of slowing down. Texas Tech comes to Austin tomorrow for their next match, and Micaya will look to impose her will yet again on the red raiders.
