“She has the skills and mentality to play at the college level and will be able to make a good college choice because of her skills,” Segay said.
Begay said she was shocked to learn when she was just a freshman that she was being selected to play on the varsity team. But she never went back. She has played varsity volleyball ever since and looks forward to playing college volleyball.
“This is my second year being coached by Coach Segay, and she has shown me how to become a better player by helping me with defense and passing drills,” Begay said. “She is a really great coach and her style has improved our defense. Defense is what puts it all together in volleyball.
“I also credit my original coach LaVor Thomas who got me started in volleyball.”
Segay has four others on the team who have also shined in her volleyball spotlight. These include freshman Takara Bighorse and sophomore Michelle Thomas, who were both named to the 3A All-Conference Volleyball Team. Following behind them are junior Lindsey Dugi and senior Janene Martinez, who were both named to the 3A Honorable Mention Team.
