Explanation of awards
Outstanding Offensive Player The recipient of this award led our offense with 141 kills for the season. This is an average of 2.43 kills/set. She led our team with 96% serving average and 22 aces.She played with more confidence, determination, and consistency than I have ever seen he play. She learned that she could be tough and fierce and still be a nice person.
Outstanding Defensive Player The recipient of this award is the player who shows the best play defensively. This player pursues the ball, finds the open seam, plays in the correct position and hustles after loose volleyballs. She is dependable and consistent game after game both in her attitude and success in controlling the ball and keeping it in play. She led the defense, taking control of tough situations by being vocal, stepping up to the challenges and never giving up. She encouraged and pushed her teammates to play harder and smarter. She played with more confidence and determination, not just in herself but in her teammates as well.
Patriot Award This player demonstrates the desire, effort and motivation to continually improve her individual skills for the good of the team. She possesses a positive attitude and is relentless in her pursuit to become a better volleyball player. She was able to take the lessons learned in practice and apply them to her game. She was willing to look at her own weaknesses and meet the challenge of improving them through hard work and by being coachable. Her motivation? To help her team be the best they could be. She became selfless and willing to do whatever was needed for the sake of her team. She demonstrated this practice after practice and game after game. This young lady rose to the challenge more fierce and determined when I changed her position and role on the court. She willingly led her team in prayer and warm-ups every practice. Her enthusiasm and love for this team is unmatched. I am so proud of this young lady in so many ways. We will miss her next year but her contagious enthusiasm, never say die attitude, love for the game and her team will live in the players she leaves behind.
Captain’s Player Award This award is one of the highest awards a player can receive because it is given by teammates, the captains of the varsity squad. The recipient is not necessarily the best player, but does have to be a player everyone can cooperate with and enjoys playing with. It is also a player everyone has respect for.
Most Improved Player of the Year Award The recipient of this award is the player who, over the course of the season, shows the most improvement. This year our most improved volleyball player is a young lady who played both JV and Varsity. She is a tough competitor and loves to play volleyball. As the season went on it was clear she was playing smarter and improved with each game. Her confidence and ability to roll with the punches was a great example to her team. She is only a 9th grader and I am looking forward to watching her play for the next three years.
Senior Honor Award The recipient of this award is any senior who has been in our program for at least 4 years and has demonstrated perseverance and determination in practices and games. She works hard and shows christian character on and off the court. This young lady intentionally went out of her way to make sure that each player knew they were important and a part of the team. She also brought a lot of crazy joy and laughter to our team. She reminded us not to take ourselves too serious. BAM!
