Allison Coens, a senior at St. James Academy, just received a scholarship to play beach volleyball! At St. James Academy she has been a 4-year starter, has two state titles, and was voted as a finalist for the Evelyn Gates Award – an award that honors the top female high school varsity volleyball student-athlete in the Kansas City area.

The last two winters she has been trained at Volleyball Beach’s heated dome by the May Fire! founder, Eric Scherfenberg.  Channel 9 news stopped by Volleyball Beach last week to film a segment on her and her amazing accomplishments. During the interview she said she really likes sand volleyball because she likes the challenge of playing in all the elements: wind, sun, and rain.
