No nominations submitted
Girard Senior Brittley Bailey – VOLLEYBALL
Nominated by her coach Christien Jackson, here’s what made Ms. Bailey standout this week. “Brittley is a force to be reckoned with on the left side. She truly is fun to watch if she gets a great set she is light out. Last night against Fredonia and Douglass she hit .429 with 18 kills. Her jump serve has the ability to throw any team out of their serve receive.”

Chetopa senior Torrie Albertson – VOLLEYBALL
Here’s what Jill Blackledge, Chetopa HS volleyball coach had to say about Albertson’s performance. “Torrie had 167 assists this week. We run a 5-1 offense, so she is the only setter and never gets a break. She does a great job getting the sets where they need to go. Torrie is also invoked in the National Honor Society and FFA. She also works 2 part-time jobs. She is a great student that maintains good grades. She wears her heart on her sleeve and expects the best in herself and her teammates.”
