Madison: “We drove four-and-a-half hours to get here, but it was worth it. I’m really excited and honored to get this award. I got to meet and play with a lot of girls from different cities I hadn’t even heard of. Volleyball has really improved around the state.

We had good chemistry as a team because all of us know what to do when we get here. We just put together what we do best and played. I plan to play volleyball at the University of Pikesville in Kentucky. I’ll finish playing club volleyball, then graduate, and then it’s off to college.”
Revolt: “Thanks so much for the award. It was nice playing with girls from other schools, especially bigger schools because I’m from a small school. We got to know each other out on the court. I hope to play volleyball in college, but I don’t know where yet.”
