Maria has been with us since the first year Unified officially became a club. She started to play with us when she was 15 and continued to play for us for the rest of her club career. She graduated from Notre Dame Preparatory in 2019, where her team won the State Championship in 2017 and were the runner ups in 2018. She was committed to play volleyball at Slippery Rock University but decided to step back to focus on her academic career and she is currently a Sophomore student at Oakland University, studying in the business school. She is also an assistant coach for NDP’s Varsity’s volleyball team and the head coach for the NDP’s middle school 8th Grade volleyball team as well. After high school Maria started coaching for Unified, working with players of all ages. Maria is looking forward to sharing her knowledge and experience to athletes. In 2023, Maria is heading into her 3rd season coaching with Unified Volleyball.
