Kayla Trefren, a senior from Culver, is the three-time Most Valuable Player of the Culver Girls Academy volleyball team. Her abilities and talents have carried the team through a rebuilding process that turned the program into a legitimate contender in a very competitive region. She leads the team in kills and blocks, and her front-row play at the net has been the anchor for both the team’s offense and defense. This season, Trefren was given the third contact 754 times and asked to score the point.
According to Coach Alex Ericson, “Kayla learns, processes, and transfers knowledge and skill exceptionally well — as she rounded her game this season into a primary passer, digger, and server in the back row. She sets the standard of performance at practice with her effort, having never been beaten in any drill, race, or other competition. She has served as captain and leader, and with her graduation this spring, the team will have a large hole to fill.
