Varsity volleyball player signs with Texas A&M Commerce

Teammates have described the best setter they have ever played with as senior Kailyn Dennis.

“Kailyn is a great player and I love having her high skill on the court with me,” junior Daina Phillips said.

Dennis is also described as a loving, caring person who will do anything on the court and off for her teammates.

Coming into the program in my freshman year, I immediately looked up to Kailyn. She introduced herself and carried herself with the confidence as all varsity athletes should. She was such an amazing teammate and I am so thankful to have gotten to play with her.”

— Ashley Fannin, junior

“To be honest, at first, I was scared of Kailyn,” said junior Lucy Fancher. “I thought she would be one of the girls who thought she’d be too good to talk to me. However, I came to find out she is one of the most relatable people I’ve ever known and one of the best players I’ve ever played with. She’s changed me immensely and I am really going to miss her.”

Dennis signed with the Texas A&M Commerce Lions to continue her volleyball career in the media center April 28.

“I am excited about going to Commerce in the fall,” Dennis said. “Between Club volleyball and experiences at East, I will be ready to train at the collegiate level.”

Dennis plans to study kinesiology/pre med at the school.

“This is a proud moment of ours,” volleyball coach Kelly Lyons said. “Seeing her career here at Wylie East end as her next one begins is a privilege. It’s amazing to see the transformation she has endured, coming into the school her freshman year as a shy little girl, to be the really talented player she is today.”

Dennis is excited to see what is in store for the future at Commerce.

“Coming into the program in my freshman year, I immediately looked up to Kailyn,” junior Ashley Fannin said. “She introduced herself and carried herself with the confidence as all varsity athletes should. She was such an amazing teammate and I am so thankful to have gotten to play with her.”

Kailyn’s teammates hope nothing but the best for her and they all believe she will excel at the next level.

“I’ve always looked up to Kailyn,” junior Brittany Fannin said. “She’s always been there for us all, on and off the court. She’s the best setter I’ve ever played with and I can’t wait to see how far she’ll go. I couldn’t be more proud.”

Everyone, including her coach, is insanely proud of her.

“She is truly a leader on the court and off. She was confident in herself as well as in her team, and she did an excellent job of making our team successful. I know our girls looked up to her. She will be missed, but we are all so proud of her,” Lyons said.
