Coach Alvey on Muldrow: Maya is a phenomenal athlete. She jumps out of the gym and is extremely fast laterally pin to pin. She just helped lead her high school team to their first-ever North Carolina High School State Championship title. Our program is going to win championships so Maya’s experience this fall and her club season have her prepared to come in and immediately make an impact in our gym. She always has a smile on her face and we are so happy to bring her upbeat personality and athleticism into our program.
