This week’s featured athlete is Mayuko Shono. Mayuko is a junior outside hitter from Tokoyo Japan. Mayulo joined the Tigers last season as a walk on and instantly made an impact for the Tigers. She was team leader in both kills and aces last season. She had 233 kills and 42 aces on the year. This season she has seen her aces drop to just 14, but has seen her kill numbers increase to a team leading 250. She has been the go to offensive player this year when the Tigers have needed a good swing.
Mayuko’s favorite Bible verse is found in Acts 16:31, “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” When she is not on the volleyball court, Mayuko enjoys painting, riding motorcycles, traveling and shopping. Mayuko and her teammates are currently 9-19 on the season. They have three more regular season matches before the MCAC playoffs November 14-15.
