At the conclusion of the District 6AAA volleyball tournament, the league handed out their postseason honors.
Four Warriorettes received accolades for their play this season.
Warrior junior middle blocker, Alex Lewis, was the big winner for WCHS. She was named to the All District 6AAA first team for the regular season and also received All Tournament honors.
Lewis dominated the net in the middle this season for the Warriorettes. She led the team in both blocks and kills. She was also a force when she stepped back to serve ranking among the tops on the team for service aces as well.
Coach Kirsty Young commented on Lewis, “Alex has played very strong all year and is just an easy player to coach. She has a great attitude and works hard.”
Sydney Holeman was named All District second team despite missing the second half of the season. That speaks highly of the respect the coaches in the district have for her ability. Holeman broke her hand in the first district game of the second half of the season and had to spend the end of her senior season watching her team perform from the sidelines.
“Sydney had a great year until she got hurt,” added Young. “She always plays with so much heart and gives everything she has. Our team really missed her down the stretch.”
Kelsey Roberts was named to the All Tournament team for her play during the two games of the 6AAA tournament.
Young noted, “Kelsey had a good year and an even better district tournament. She hadn’t played since her freshman year and came back out this fall. She played very well for us after having missed two seasons. She and Sydney are seniors and will be missed next season.”
The fourth member of the glitter squad for WCHS is Maggie Savage. The Warriorette freshman was named to the All Freshman team. After playing just with the junior varsity team during the regular season, Savage earned some playing time with the varsity during the district tournament.
WCHS assistant coach and JV coach, Shane Wallace, commented on Savage, “Maggie’s overall ability to contribute not only to our freshman team, but also our varsity was outstanding. Her hustle and work ethic allowed her to be a big contributor for us this season. Her award was well deserved.”
Two of the four who received postseason honors for the Warriorettes will be back next season.
