Kylie McLogan knew it was over.
Although she had one year of athletic eligibility remaining, McLogan knew the 2013 volleyball season would be her last.
The Cal Lutheran outside hitter wanted to leave with no regrets, and fell only a few points shy of a perfect ending.
Powered by McLogan’s All-American season, the Regals reached the NCAA Division III national title game and set a single-season program record for wins (35).
McLogan bettered her own single-season program record for kills with 520 to become CLU’s career kills leader with 1,421 in only three seasons.
“I really couldn’t have asked for a better final season,” McLogan said. “We had been thinking about being in the national championship for so long and to have finally gotten there and been able to play in such a great match with a massive crowd was amazing. It was a really great way for me to wrap up my volleyball career in general.”
McLogan, 22, did in three seasons what most players never accomplish in four.
The Upland native was a two-time first-team All-American and a three-time All-West Region selection. Along with her records for kills, McLogan ranks fifth all-time at CLU in digs with 1,056.
“It was never a conscious effort in my mind to break records. I never kept track of those things and never knew I did it until someone told me,” McLogan said. “It’s nice to have those things to look back on, but at the end of the day the things I will remember most is the time spent with the girls and the friends I made. That is far more important to me than my name being on a plaque for holding some record.”
