Broken Arrow’s Mackenzie McGuire was announced Tuesday as the Gatorade Oklahoma Volleyball Player of the Year.

McGuire, a 6-foot-1 senior outside hitter, is now the third volleyball player from her school to receive the prestigious award.

McGuire had a dominant season, finishing with 556 kills and 262 digs. She also had 58 aces, 49 blocks, a .427 kill percentage and .294 hitting percentage as she helped the Tigers reach the Class 6A state quarterfinals and finish with a 24-11 record.

“Mac has always been a hard-working player who leads by example, but she’s also a vocal leader of her team,” Broken Arrow coach Ian Bullen said. “She has been very solid under pressure and often played her best on the biggest stages.”

McGuire, a Kent State signee, is now a finalist for Gatorade’s national volleyball player of the year award. The winner will be announced this month.
