She earned all-Monterey County honors for her league championship team. Whitney was also class Valedictorian and matriculated to the University of California Los Angeles. She played club volleyball at UCLA and returned to San Luis Obispo after graduation to take a coaching position with Cuesta, but found herself back on the hardwood. She joined Cuesta’s team and earned all-Western State Conference honors both seasons of her record setting career. Whitney holds Cuesta’s record with 45 service aces in a season, along with the career mark of 76. She also ranks in Cuesta’s Top 10 for career kills and digs.
