Malia McGuinness grew up playing volleyball in Kailua, Hawaii. She was a four- year varsity player at Maryknoll High School and played for Jammers Volleyball Club. She then continued her career at Manhattan College as an outside hitter. She was a 4 year starter who was Selected to both the All-MAAC Second Team and MAAC All-Rookie Team her freshman year. In her senior year she became just the second player in program history to earn MAAC Player of the Year honors, and was also unanimously named First Team All-MAAC and shared Manhattan’s Female Student-Athlete of the Year award.
After graduating in May 2015, she moved out to San Diego, and jumped right into coaching with La Jolla Volleyball Club! Malia is a strong player and a great role model and has enjoyed coaching and inspiring volleyball players… after a short break in coaching (for her daytime job!), we are happy to have her back in the gym coaching with us!
