Jahnae Collins is a member of CMA high school’s volleyball team. This is her fourth year with the program and she is the only senior on the varsity level.
“It was a bittersweet experience because I knew my high school career was going to come to an end,” said Collins.
Collins had high expectations for her final year.
“I knew I had one job to do and that was to take my team all the way,” she said.
Collins did just that, leading the Lady Pharaohs to a record-setting 12-2 season. To follow that, Collins and her teammates went on to win the district championship. They also made history winning the first regional championship in the school’s 25-year history.
“She turned into a monster” is what Principal Donya Odom had to say about Collins’ stellar performance during the regional championship game.
Collins had the full support from her teammates.
“She was a very hardworking and determined player, she helped our team out a lot with her wonderful playing skills, especially her hitting and I enjoyed playing with her this season,” junior Jade Jones said.
Collins’ volleyball career isn’t over. She plans to play in college.
