OHS volleyball receives league honors

by Corey Wiscomb

Awards for this season’s best performers are already in for the Volleyball season. Each team elects players that they deem eligible for honors based on their season stats and roles. Voting is amongst all coaches of the league, and votes can only go to players of other teams. The players that receive the most votes are awarded all-league first and second-team status.

This season senior setter Tayla Malo was named to the All-League 2nd Team as one of the top passers in the game. And sophomore Bethany Carter was named to the All-League 1st team for her overall game, including serves, digs, and of course her infamous kills.

The Lady Vikings were also awarded the Team Sportsmanship of the Year title. Orcas was known for their intense and honorable effort in matches. And a final award was granted to Orcas Head Coach Rachel Wilson as she was named “Coach of the Year.” Like the player awards, the coaching honor is voted on entirely by opponents. There’s something sweet about that recognition. It is a good representation for Orcas and highlights the foundation of the excitement that is already brewing for upcoming seasons.
