Secaucus senior Julia McClure was named the NJ.com/Star-Ledger Player of the Year in girls volleyball over the weekend.
McClure recorded 511 kills, 266 digs and 145 service points and led Secaucus to its first NJSIAA Group 1 title since 2006. As a result, she was featured in a profile on NJ.com that reveals some interesting details about the star player.
For instance, McClure wanted to play soccer but was convinced by coach Sheila Rivera to pursue volleyball. She has wound up as one of the best players in the program’s history with more than 1,000 kills.
“Never in a million years did I think that volleyball would be something that we would exceed in. We all played as a team and I’m glad that we finally put it together my senior year. It was well deserved.”
