Silva, as outside hitter, finished the year with 170 kills, 207 digs, 45 aces, and 15 blocks.

Coach Rory Rush said, “Sam was a consistent leader for us on the floor this year. Her court sense and intensity has been such a valuable asset. We are so proud she was given the recognition she deserves as one of the top players in the state.”

Davis, at middle hitter, recorded 254 kills, 127 digs, 12 aces, and 42 blocks.

“Greta established herself as one of the top hitters, not only in our league, but in the state this season,” said Rush. “Her work ethic and competitiveness are fierce. We are so proud of her and look forward to watching her continue to grow as a player.”

Junior Ellie Rush, at the setter position, dished out 617 assists, recorded 145 digs, 57 aces, and 11 blocks.

“Ellie’s court sense and competitive nature make her a force to be reckoned with,” said Rush. “She will do whatever is needed for her teammates to be successful. She has established herself as a top setter and we are excited to see her receive this recognition.”

Rush added, “Having three girls recognized for All State awards this year is an honor by coaches around the state that saw their hard work, intense floor presence, and floor leadership,” said Rush. “Sam, Greta, and Ellie were consistent leaders for us on and off the floor. They worked hard every day in practice to push our team to the next level during games. I am so proud of their efforts this year that helped us bring home the fourth-place trophy at state.”
