McKenzie Adams
Volleyball (2011-13)
Women’s Basketball (2013-14)

McKenzie Adams was a two-time All-American and two-time conference player of the year during her UTSA career, which spanned the 2011-13 volleyball seasons. A local product out of Steele High School, she earned third-team American Volleyball Coaches Association All-America accolades in 2013 after receiving honorable mention the year prior.

Following a standout debut campaign at Virginia where she was named NCAA East Regional and ACC Freshman of the Year, Adams transferred to UTSA and went on to garner first-team all-conference accolades in three different leagues — 2011 Southland, 2012 WAC and 2013 Conference USA — giving her the illustrious honor to have collected all-conference certificates in four different leagues. She was the 2012 WAC Player of the Year and repeated that honor in 2013 in C-USA, helping lead the Roadrunners to the regular season and tournament titles and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

Adams still holds several school records including single-season marks for kills (653), attacks (1,575) and solo blocks (32), and currently is playing professionally overseas.

An excellent all-around athlete, Adams also played basketball in 2013-14, appearing in 16 games with 14 starts, leading the team in rebounds per game (5.7) while posting 6.2 points per game, 24 blocks and 14 steals.
