SAN ANTONIO — Head coach Laura Neugebauer-Groff announced Monday that Macie McKay (San Antonio, Texas/Smithson Valley HS) has signed a National Letter of Intent. She will join the Roadrunners for the upcoming 2012 season.
McKay, a 6-foot middle hitter, guided Smithson Valley High School to four consecutive playoff appearances. She was a three-time all-district honoree at middle hitter and earned academic all-district honors in 2011. She also played for the San Antonio Force Volleyball Club and was a member of the 2012 Junior Olympic Qualifying Team.
"I'm excited to get a very talented player from the San Antonio area to join our program," Neugebauer-Groff said. "Macie adds some depth to our middle hitter position. She is a very versatile athlete and can provide a lot of offense."
McKay joins May signee Kristen Booker (Houston, Texas/North Shore HS) and November signees Jordan Kotara (Poth, Texas/Poth HS), Annie Kunes (Fontana, Wis./Big Foot HS) and Kylie Schott (Cypress, Texas/Cy-Fair HS).
UTSA, which posted a 22-11 record last fall, advanced to the Southland Conference Tournament Championship Match for the second consecutive year. Five Roadrunners were named All-Southland, including redshirt junior Setter of the Year Kelsey Schwirtlich and sophomore Newcomer of the Year McKenzie Adams.
The Roadrunners will compete in the Western Athletic Conference this year.
