McKay is a left side hitter and all-around.

“I try as hard as I can, “she said. “I’m more of a good setter, passer.”

Missing Parsons “puts a little bit of a pull on us since we don’t have our highest middle blocker,” McKay said, adding that she’s focusing on her hitting to get the attacks more

accurate.
