OKAY yes, I didn’t post yesterday, I got distracted by many MANY missed episodes of Grey’s Anatomy (Who knew it could be so good?)….and it was supposed to be Setter Sunday but… maybe i’ll just change it to Setter Monday officially lol.
So today’s Setter Monday goes to…. Jenna Gray.
Jenna Gray is a sophomore setter for Stanford (She must be a genius). No, seriously, Jenna goes to STANFORD. Jenna is a powerhouse, a force to be reckoned with, and a champion.
According to flovolleyball.tv, Jenna is 3rd on the list of 2017’s top 14 setters in NCAA volleyball. They label her as “The unsung hero of the 2016 nation championship Stanford team. Heres what they have to say about 6 foot 1 Jenna Gray,
The unsung hero of the 2016 national championship Stanford team, Jenna Gray became the first freshman to set a team to the national title since Nebraska’s Rachel Holloway in 2006. The 2015 Kansas Gatorade Player of the Year has dished out 511 assists so far in her sophomore season — 11.61 assists per set — good for 11th-best in the country and No. 1 in the Pac-12 Conference. She’s deadly from the service line, too, tallying a conference-high 0.50 aces per set. Oh, and did we mention she threw javelin for the Stanford track team in the fall and earned second-team All-American honors? (FloVolleyball Staff, para 14)
Jenna Gray is only a sophomore so we can expect to see two more wonderful years of play from Jenna and we can only expect her to grow higher in the ranks of best setters in the NCAA because the first two spots were taken up but Senior Kelly Hunter from Nebraska who will be graduated and Junior Samantha Seliger-Swenson from Minnesota. She has some tough competition but I am sure she will go far in the few years to come and who knows, maybe we can see her go pro? Or maybe in the 2020 Olympics? I am already so excited for the next Olympics!
Till Next Time,
