With over 750 assists, Short has led her team to a 21-2 record and is looking to finish the season off at the NJCAA D1 Volleyball National Tournament.Short says she began playing volleyball at the age of 8, and has wanted to play at the collegiate level “since day one”. She says,” I’ve always looked up to college athletes and wanted to do what they were doing.”
After finding out about the Snow College volleyball program through a friend, she attended a summer camp and ended up talking to head coach Jeffrey Reynolds about playing opportunities. During the course of her freshman year, she has “loved being on the team” and says her favorite part is,” …how connected we are. They’re like my second family and the team culture here is seriously amazing. It’s one of the big reasons I decided to come to Snow.”
Coach Reynolds says about Short,”She’s a competitor in every sense of the word and that drive is invaluable in helping us run our offense. In my opinion, she’s one of the top setters in the nation. Macy has been a constant factor in our success this season.”
