Taylor King was nominated for 1st team all conference. Becca Kunselman, Montana Hetrick and Tara Hindeliter were all nominated for 2nd team all conference. Taylor King and Montana Hetrick also qualified for all district.

Both teams had a good season with junior varsity losing two games and varsity losing four games. Varsity sadly ended their season at Kane in the first round of playoffs. It was a very close game going into five sets.

The seniors have all had some hard times throughout the season but they stuck by each others side when they needed it the most. They have played with each other since junior high and it shows. No matter what happened they referred to each other as family. All the underclassmen that have played with them will miss them very much and wish them good luck in their future.
