Wilson Earns 2019 MVP Honors

LAKELAND, Fla. - Throughout the month of July, Florida Southern College Athletics will release its list of team MVPs for the 2018-19 season. Each MVP was selected by the team's head coach, and the list includes some of the top student-athletes in the country. MVPs will be revealed each weekday during the month at 10 a.m., and a list of their scheduled release dates can be found below.

Makena Wilson has been named the 2019 beach volleyball team MVP following her senior year. During her final season, she posted seven wins to help guide a Moccasin team that nearly tripled its win total from a year ago. Five of her seven wins came in three-set thrillers, including a 16-14 victory over Lincoln Memorial's number one pair. Wilson, who was paired up with Alex Montoya, picked up another win over LMU's number one pair a day later in straight-sets. The Mocs went a perfect 7-0 in matches where Wilson and her teammate claimed the point. Wilson and her teammate dropped the first set but rallied back to claim the point in three separate matches. 

Florida Southern finished sixth at the AVCA Small College Championship in May. 

Wilson was also a member of the Moccasin indoor volleyball team during her two-year career at Florida Southern. Wilson helped lead the Mocs to a 2017 National Runner-up finish as a junior.
