Athlete Information

Hometown Naperville, IL
Height 5'8"
Birthday June 23, 1996

Molly Turner, after being cut from her high school indoor team, transitioned to beach volleyball, where she became a 2-time All-American for Grand Canyon University. Originally from Illinois, she moved to California to pursue her dream of playing on the AVP Tour just days after graduating in 2018. Molly has made her mark on the AVP quickly, with several Main Draw appearances, including multiple Semifinals appearances.  

All of her placings and accomplishments empower and encourage Molly as she still feels like playing on the AVP is surreal. She was always told “no” and turned away.  But because of that experience, because of the time she almost lost volleyball forever, each game and tournament feels special. Molly can express her personality through the fire she brings on the court and the challenges she has to overcome each and every point. She also loves life in California. When she isn’t playing volleyball, she is hiking or somewhere in the woods with her fiancé, indoor setter James Shaw. Her favorite food is all things breakfast and coffee (lots of coffee).
