“Ancilla was the right choice for me because it fits me,” said Mavrick. “Coming out of a small Class 2A school, I will be more comfortable starting off (with a small school). I’m looking forward to being close to home with my family and friends.”
Mavrick, an outside hitter and defensive specialist, has started all four years at Eastern under Meredith Cipriano and is a three-time All-MIC Conference selection.
“In the 11 seasons I’ve coached, Hayley Mavrick has been by far the best volleyball player I have coached,” said Cipriano. “She has a high volleyball IQ, a passion for the game and the athletic ability to make her a well-rounded player. She’s one of the most coachable, hardest working kids I have ever coached,”
The two-time team MVP and team captain has helped lead Eastern to a conference title in 2008 and the Howard County championship in 2008, 2010, and 2011.
In her senior season, Mavrick averaged 17.2 kills and 16 digs per match, helping lead Eastern to a record of 19-12.
Mavrick is also a four year starter in softball and is a member of Key Club.
“Hayley is a natural athlete and playing the game she loves is important to her,” said Ancilla head coach Lana Singleton. “I expect her success to continue.”
She is the daughter of Chris and Missy Mavrick and plans on majoring in General Studies.
“Not only is Ancilla getting a great volleyball player, but a great athlete and great person,” said Eastern Athletic Director Brad Wilson. “Hayley works extremely hard. I know I’ll miss her.”
