Johna Alford, Karsen Ross, and Coach Amanda Player were honored by District 22AA volleyball coaches in the voting held after the close of the season. Alford was chosen Offensive MVP of the district and Ross was chosen as the MVP Setter for the district. Player was given Coach of the Year honors by her colleagues. The honors were expected for the Lady Eagles’ Championship season.

Making the first team All- District were: Karley Wren and Aleece Moerbe. Selected to the First Team Defense was libero Madison Bexley.

Meghann Wrinkle was selected Second Team All-District.

Alford was selected for the offensive MVP due to 147 kills, 86 digs, 46 blocks, and 32 aces in district action. Ross was selected as setter of the year with 352 assists in district action alone. That means 352 of her sets were followed by kills by a teammate.

Moerbe was second on the team in kills in district action with 105 smackdowns. She had 87 digs and 48 aces in district play. Wren was a close third with 102 kills, 106 digs, and 30 ace serves. Bexley was the team libero playing the back row all year. She was the team leader in digs with 125 bump ups. Some were diving swings at a quickly moving ball. Wrinkle was a steady player all district long. Meghann had 16 kills, many assists, 74 digs, 14 blocks, and 12 aces in district action.
