Volleyball is not just a sport for Grace McCammon, it is so much more. Growing up, McCammon was always watching her family and friends play volleyball. “Being around my sister and her friends, who were volleyball players, made me want to start playing. I decided around seventh grade to join club volleyball, and it was the best decision I made,” McCammon said. After playing club volleyball for a while, McCammon tried out for the high school team during the summer before her freshman year. “My first and favorite memory of volleyball at Pace High School is playing varsity my freshman year. I was able to not only be close with the girls my age, but interact with the older girls as well,” McCammon said. McCammon is ranked 1,328 in the nation and 75 in the state. In the past two seasons, McCammon has played 134 sets, made 673 assists, had 64 aces, made 283 digs, and had 100 kills. She could not have done all this on her own. “Having such great coaches and playing with all the other girls has really made me learn a lot. Not only as a volleyball player but as a person as well,” McCammon said. McCammon ended her senior season with memories and a new family that she will never forget.
