“[Alejandra Leon] leads by example. She has the fastest arm swing in our gym, has great ball control, and an effective serve. She is an offensive threat in the front row and back row, and is so steady in pressure situations. When the going gets tough, the tough get going, she embodies this for our program. It has been a pleasure to coach her and I am so excited to see her continue to grow as a player,” said Coach Lisa Gera.
Leon is the attacking presence in the Mariners’ drive for a Bay Valley Conference Championship.
