MANHATTAN (KSNT) – Since she’s gotten to K-State, senior libero Mackenzie Morris hasn’t missed a single set.
A true ironman for the Wildcats, Morris is known for leaving it all out on the floor. She will dive forward, sideways and backward to try to save a point. The libero is the player seen in a different jersey, subbing in freely for back row duties.
K-Nation’s Landon Reinhardt sat down with Morris to find out what drives her. She says being a team player is key.
“I think it’s just part of being a libero,” Morris said. “You have to be the one sacrificing, giving your all all the time. I feel like I just try my best to give 100 percent every day.”
If you slow down videos of Morris in action, she’ll be in awkward, body-morphing positions. She says it’s a regular occurrence to be in an abnormal shape.
“Honestly, probably too many times,” Morris said. “That’s why I’m in the training room a lot. Just being taught how to dive is kind of scary because no one wants to see you throw yourself on the floor…but getting underneath balls is very important.”
