Ashlyn Mullin ’24 receives the first Athlete of the Week for her phenomenal 2023 volleyball season, and her leadership as team captain. The Foothill Technology High School community appreciates all her hard work in representing the school.

As the Foothill Technology High School (Foothill Tech) girls’ volleyball season came to a close, the season highlighted Foothill Tech’s top female outside hitter, Ashlyn Mullin ‘24. Mullin has been playing the sport of volleyball for nine years, showing her dedication and making her a true veteran on the court.

Ashlyn Mullin ’24 (number 10) spiked the ball over the net, watching as it soared above the head of her opponent. Mullin’s impressive front row spikes, along with her back row digs and hits, proved that she was an all-around impressive player and a vital member of the girls’ volleyball team. (Rihanna Samples)

As a senior, the 2023 season marks her last season with Foothill Tech. Mullin spoke emotionally about what she enjoyed in her final season. “ … The relationships that I had with all my teammates made practice and games more fun.” She also enjoyed fun moments with the team off the court such as team dinners and team bonding activities.

Reflecting on the season, one of her best games occurred on Sep. 28, 2023 where the Dragons faced St. Bonaventure High School in a tight matchup, Foothill Tech lost 2-3. On the positive side, Mullin had a great game, as she now reflects on her performance, “I feel like I just had a lot of digs.”

Another notable performance by Mullin occurred on Sep. 14, 2021 where Foothill Tech matched up against Cate High School. Mullin recorded an impressive 17 kills.

As the season ended, Mullin and the rest of the senior class packed their volleyball shoes away for good as they enjoyed their last moments with their loving team of Foothill Tech volleyball players, remembering the memories and never forgetting the spirit of the Dragon.
