But the volleyball world knew all about Serena. On February 13, 2016, John Tawa, the founder of PrepVolleyball.com, captioned a photo of Gray on the PrepVolleyball.com site, “Serena Gray: you are VERY good!” and listed her as one of the top five talents he saw on Day 1 of the 2016 Las Vegas Classic. In May of 2016, Gray and Kaitlyn Hord, another 2018 Penn State verbal, were named to the U.S. Girls’ Youth National Training Team.
