Hailey was an ultra valuable piece to the Vikings run to the volleyball state playoffs. The senior was among the leaders in most statistical categories and was the team’s dig master. She helped the Vikings earn the No. 2 seed out of the 3A Northern League.
Whittell High School
Ava was the second leading scorer on the Warriors undefeated soccer team in the regular season. The sophomore scored 24 goals and assisted on 20 others to record 68 points in 15 games. She scored an impressive goal to tie the game in Whittell’s playoff loss.
