September Athlete of the Month
Leokadia Saunders, our junior opposite hitter who leads the volleyball team in digs and receptions all season. As a result of her outstanding court awareness, she has quickly picked up on the system we are using. Leokadia helped lead her team to a first-place finish in the Hoosiers Invitational with 53 digs in three matches. She led the team with 4.3 digs per set with 373 total digs in 33 matches. A consistent example of dedication, skill and sportsmanship on the court. Congratulations on this well-deserved recognition, Leokadia. - Coach Cassel
Oriana Lowe, our sophomore middle hitter who leads in almost all categories. Oriana has been a force to be reckoned with. Her stats speak volumes of her skill and commitment to the sport with 50 serve aces (3.1 per match), 86 kills (5.3 per match), blocks and second in digs with 70 digs (4.3 per match). Her performance on the court not only contributes significantly to her team’s success but also showcases what can be achieved through hard work and determination. Congratulations on this well-deserved recognition, Oriana.

Guna is a determined runner! Because of that, she has the most cut off minutes on the team! She ran 4 minutes and 5.3 seconds off from the first meet in September. Her mindset shifted once she knew she was capable of being a decent runner. She was committed to 6:00am practices all way through September. Her spirit and sense of humor also bring light to the team. We are proud of you, Guna! Keep up the hard work! - Coach Gage
Itzak has always been a happy, diligent, and helpful person who does everything with a grin. Itzak works hard and is constantly supportive of the squad and the coaches, as well as respectful. - Coach Blood
