A pivotal, 6-rotation OH on both her club and high school teams, Kyra is one of the top all-around outside hitters. She is an extremely talented and tenacious athlete and is always willing to put in the hard work to improve her game. Early on in her 9 years playing volleyball, her athleticism and versatility as a 'gamer' afforded her coaches with the flexibility to play her in almost every position based on game situations or injuries.  After setting and leading the offense for her first 3 years, it was her forceful swing and her eye to find that open spot on the other side of the court that permanently moved to her to outside where she terminates at all areas of the net.


When it comes game time, Kyra is nothing but focused when she steps on the court and is truly a fierce competitor, no matter what team is on the other side of the net.  Her response when it comes to pressure situations, "Bring it on!"  Her calmness and consistency are traits her coaches and teammates can always trust in.  Her personal goal is very clear, "Always bring my 'A' game no matter what."  A few examples of Kyra's strength over the last two years are, her return to the court 15 days after double knee surgery, playing through playoffs and states with a stress fracture in her foot and jamming a finger on her hitting hand at the start of a playoff match but refusing to come off the court, shows Kyra's determination to do what she does best and power through to come away with the win.


She went out with a bang for her high school senior year and ended her career at Village Chrisitian as a key player for the most decorated girls volleyball team that will go down in the history of the school. In addition, she has earned great recognition for herself as a player, including CIF SS Div 2 Player of the Year and a Prep Volleyball All-American.


She will end her club career with the #1 volleyball club in the state of California, T Street, on their 18-1s team where she comes in as the new girl ready to earn a starting spot.


San Gabriel Elite was her club of choice for 17s this past year and Kyra and her teammates secured an Open Bid to Nationals at the SCVA JNQ.


As a junior, her high school team started the year competing in the prestigious Ann Kang Invitational in Hawaii.  Listed as the 15th seed, they battled their way to a 5th place finish where Kyra delivered 58 kills and 56 digs.  Her team won the Saugus High School Tournament where Kyra was selected as the Tournament MVP and for the All Tournament Team. Going undefeated in league, the team finished as the CIF SS Div 2AA Runner Up and the CIF State SoCal Region Runner Up.  Kyra was named All CIF Southern Section, 1st Team Olympic League and NCSAA All American.


Kyra had much success on her San Gabriel Elite 16 Roshambo club team where she was one of two captains leading the team. They  won a 3rd place medal at the SCVA JNQ and finished 28th in the nation in Minneapolis.  An instrumental part of the team, it was rare that Kyra ever left the court. 


After transferring her Sophmore year from West Ranch HS to play for Village Christian HS, Kyra's 2013 High School season was very successful. As a captain, she helped lead the team to a 26-8 record, a quarter final finish in playoffs, 2nd place in league, Chadwick Tournament Champions and a 2nd place finish in the Crescenta Valley Tournament where she received the All Tournament Team Award.  A few more of her accomplishments were First Team All Olympic League, ACVA Phenom, PrepVolleyball 2013 Soph 79 High Honorable Mention and the NCSAA Far West Super Regional team.

As a new puzzle piece to the 2013 San Gabriel Elite 15 Roshambo team, Kyra had to demonstrate her talents to her new coaches and teammates.  It didn't take long for her to prove her abilities and earn a starting outside hitter position and play all around the court.  Finishing 3rd in Southern California and taking the gold at the NCVA Far Western National Qualifier, the team competed at Nationals where they took 15th in the nation, again, she never left the court the entire tournament.  She was selected to the '13 USA Volleyball High Performance A2 team and the '13 USA Beach Volleyball High Performance A3 team and trained at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista.


Playing volleyball since she was 9, Kyra has acquired a love for the game that drives her passion both on the court and in the sand.  She often walks around the house with a volleyball in her hand and has this great ability to drive her family nuts serving the ball into the side of the house.  


Growing up with 3 athletic brothers, Kyra has participated and excelled in sports since the age of 4, when she was the only girl and toughest kid on her twin brother's baseball team.  After playing on over 35 different athletic teams to date (including a 3x state championship soccer team), it's safe to say, this driven athlete knows how to compete and always puts forth her very best effort for the success of the team.  Her goal is simple,  to play at a top division 1 school just as her parents did (dad played Notre Dame football and mom attended Seton Hall and played softball).


When Kyra is not on the court, she enjoys drawing and painting, and spending time out on the lake wakeboarding with her family.  She also likes to hang out with her friends, go to the movies and frequent the local ice cream shops!
