Makayla was named one of 29 finalists for the 2011 PrepVolleyball.com National Junior of the Year!
From Prepvolleyball.com (2012):
To be considered a finalist for National Junior of the Year, a top junior had to make a “massive” impact on her high school team and the state. "Massive" is a subjective term, but at a minimum required that she have statistics that were the best on her team at her position and that she be one of the top players in her state regardless of class. Playing on a team that won a state title, advanced far in the state tournament and/or was nationally ranked was also helpful.
Makayla Lindburg, 6-0 MB, Crook County (Prineville, Oregon) – Two-time Oregon 4A Player of the Year, Lindburg led the Cowgirls to a second straight 4A title and sixth straight overall in 2011. A quick twitch middle with outstanding intensity, Lindburg finished the season with 559 kills in 95 sets and added 65 blocks, 41 aces and 144 digs.
