All-league selections for fall sports

The fall selections for All-League players have been finalized and Orcas athletes have represented Viking football, soccer and volleyball well.

Although the voting process can vary amongst sports,  Football Coach Scott Harris said being selected in any sport is difficult.

For example, Harris said football coaches nominate athletes for All-League consideration but do not vote on their own players. League coaches vote on the nominated players and the vote count determines who is selected and the number of votes determines if a player is first team, second team or honorable mention.

Harris also notes that depending upon the team’s record, it can be especially difficult to influence league coaches, which makes selections all the more based on an athlete’s merit.

The following athletes were selected:

Volleyball

Honorable Mention  – Alicia Susol, opposite hitter and Mary Wilson, middle blocker

Girls soccer

First Team – Lana Bronn, midfield, Brynna Gregg midfield and Kirsten Fowler defense

Second Team – Shelbi Rogers, defense and Julia Bailey, goal keeper
