A little bit about Mikayla
Hello, I'm Mikayla Benanti and I'm a senior at Saint Thomas Aquinas High School in Overland Park KS. I started playing indoor volleyball in 3rd grade and I'm now in my 10th year playing school volleyball. The last two years I've played on Varsity as a middle hitter and I have loved it! I was very excited to find out last week that I was selected for the Kansas High School All Star team. Twelve volleyball seniors from across Kansas schools were selected to compete in one more tournament versus the Missouri All Stars. That event is on Nov 22 which will wrap up my school indoor career.
I am now focused full time on playing beach and I'm so happy about this! The commitment that indoor required really impacted my ability to play more beach tournaments last year, so I will no longer have that conflict. Yeah! In 2017, I added beach during the summer to stay in shape between indoor seasons and I loved it. That summer I participated in my first National Beach events. In 2018 I joined a local beach club P4:13 Kansas City Beach to continue to improve my skills. I went from from playing 10 beach tournaments during the summer to playing 25 tournaments each of the last two years and playing almost year round. I also joined Hyden Beach Academy in Nashville TN, and I love this club, the athletes and the incredible coaches.
I'm very excited and honored to be part of the Fab50! I look forward to meeting all of the other Fab50 girls and playing with as many of you as possible. If you have interest in partnering, just ping me! :)
