Two Augusta volleyball players earned Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League Div. IV honors this week.
Destiny Williams was named Second Team All-League for the Orioles. Williams, a senior, spent a lot of time at the setter position this season. When she wasn't setting, she was one of Augusta's top hitters and helped with blocking, as well.
“Depending on the rotations and the needs of who we were playing, she was a multi-purpose player,” coach Rich Bishop said of Williams. “She hit and blocked at all three front row locations even if that was not her rotational position. She played with great enthusiasm to contribute to the teams successes. Her style of play tried to involve her team mates and improve our opportunities for wins.”
Courtney Phillips earned Honorable Mention. Phillips, also a senior, was a top hitter and server for the Orioles.
“She power hit her way through and around hitters all season,” Bishop said of Phillips. “Her jump serving provided the team with multiple aces and points every match. In addition, her passing was instrumental in setting up many of our sets and kills thru other players.”
Augusta had tough competition in the new division with the likes of Andale and Circle. The Indians had three players—Olivia Orth, Mackenzie Stuever and Jessica Schwartz, all seniors—earn First Team honors.
Circle senior Leslie Geist also earned First Team All-League honors. Clearwater's Bryna Vogel and Hanna House, and Collegiate's Maddie Lett also earned First Team honors. Vogel earned Most Valuable Player.
Circle sophomore Katie Frankenbury and Circle senior Taylor Adlesperger earned Second Team honors. Circle senior Alexis Weibe earned Honorable Mention.
For Division III, Rose Hill's Keanu Bradley and Kylie Pfaff earned First Team honors. Pfaff had also recently earned All-State tournament team honors. Bailey Santo and Dakota Williams earned Second Team honors for the Rockets.
