Marion’s father woke her up and told her that she was being named Athlete of the Week. At first, she did not believe what she had heard then, the excitement kicked in.

“When I found out about it, I was ecstatic, out of this world,” Marion told KHOU.

Marion has been on the varsity volleyball team all four years. Throughout her high school career, Marion has made 370 kills (an attack that leads to a gain of a point or win of a rally) and 40 aces.

“My first thoughts when Alexis was chosen for this award was that I am so proud of how hard she has worked this year and that she definitely deserves it… I have watched her mature not only as a person but as an athlete,” Schneider said. “She has shown that she is a leader on the court, not just with stats, but her presence alone,” Schneider added.
