Her accolades exploded during her junior year including several All-Tournament Team selections, Scholar Athlete Activity Award, Volleyball Division 4 All Division and All Section 1st team, and was on the Principal’s Honor Roll both terms. During her final year at Parker HS she became a National Honor Society Member, was selected to 3 All-Tournament teams, and was the American Volleyball Coaches Association National Player of the Week for October 5th – 11th .
Head Coach Zach Shaver said “Jailynn is a memembr of a shrinking group of outside hitter in today’s volleyball world. She is a dynamic attacker that also possesses wonderful ball control skills. We knew right away when watching her playing with CRVC that she was a complete and well rounded player. Jailynn’s fundamental volleyball skills are a tribute to the training she has received from her coaches Marie and Daniel Maya. We expect her to compete for court time in our strong group of outside hitters in 2016.”
