Mackenzie Shirley just entered her freshman year at Union College. Mackenzie played for Club Unite two seasons and travelled with the Club Unite group to Costa Rica to serve God using her volleyball talents to touch lives. "It's a big leap going from club to college but worth it. All the tournaments and hard work pay off but that's just a start. What I love about being a freshman is being able to write a new chapter with new people in my life. I've already met girls that I know are going to be long term friends. I am excited to see where the season takes us and to grow close to my team. Along with my girls, we love to go to our local old town grill and eat after practices." Club Unite wishes Mackenzie a fantastic freshman year.
