Our News5 Athlete of the Week is Mara Abernethy of Coronado volleyball. 

The senior outside hitter is killing it on the court, literally and figuratively. 

She’s amassed 164 kills for th Cougars and helped her team to a 6th seed in the 5A Regional Tournament. They will host for the first time in five years. 

Abernethy will continue her playing career at The University of Denver next season and hopes to pursue a degree in law. 

"I was really excited to be contacted by someone that has a great program and great coaches but also at a high level academically, where I can really strive to do my best and earn a degree," Abernethy said.
