Mira Costa High School

Junior Presley Forbes talks life as a Volleyball player

Presley Forbes is a current junior at Mira Costa High School and also one of the top Beach Volleyball players in the state. A drifter between clubs, her mother established the club Team Wave to help further her prospects in the sport. She earned her first A rating as a 10 year old, a unique feat playing with athletes more than double her age at the time.

Constantly travelling down the California coast to play, Forbes is rarely caught away from the court. She formerly played indoor as well before devoting herself full-time to beach this year. Recently, she committed to University of Hawaii to play.

Standing at 5″3, her short stature is considered an anomaly in the sport, but she hasn’t let this discourage her. Following college, she plans to play professionally for the Philippines due to her heritage.
