Coach Rory rush was named Coach of the Year for the second year in a row.

The Lady Outlaws volleyball team had seven of their players selected to all-league teams, including Gracie Vohs, who was named Player of the Year and was a first-team pick. In addition, she was voted First Team All Tournament at the State Tournament, and was named Player of the Game in the championship match.

Vohs (senior outside hitter and captain) finished league with 468 kills, 232 digs, 61 aces, and 24 blocks.

Coach Rory Rush said, "Gracie is the best all-around player in our league, both on offense and defense. She was our go-to player on the outside when we needed to put the ball down. She's a powerful hitter and she worked hard this year to not only be powerful but smart, and place the ball, and add to her toolbox with tips, roll-shots, and pushes to the corner."

Gracelyn Myhre (senior outside hitter and captain) was also a first team selection, and was also voted to the All-Defensive team in league. In addition, Myhre was selected First Team All-Tournament at State.


Myhre finished league with 344 kills, 235 digs, 50 aces, and eight blocks.

"Gracelyn is an all-around great player with great court awareness," said Rush. "She has the ability to see holes and weaknesses in other teams and capitalize. She's a solid passer and was second on our team in passing percentage. This year she worked really hard to be a positive and motivating leader on the court."

Bailey Robertson (middle hitter and captain) rounds out the first-team selections. She finished league play with 238 kills, 69 digs, 10 aces, and led the team with 55 blocks.

"Bailey established herself as one of the best middles in our league and in the state this year," said Rush. "She put up big blocks, had aggressive swings, and was the vocal leader in the front row. When teams were focused on our outsides, she stepped up and put the ball away."

Mia Monaghan (libero), Kathryn Scholl (middle), and Holly Davis (setter) were all second-team picks.

Monaghan, in addition to being a second-team pick, was named Defensive Player of the Year. She finished league with 32 aces, 431 digs, and led the team in passing percentage.

"Mia was very steady and stoic in the back row," said Rush. "She anchors our defense and does a great job of reading the other team's hitters. This year she stepped up as a vocal leader in the back row."

Scholl wrapped up league with 215 kills, 19 aces, 89 digs, and 31 blocks.

Rush said, "This was Kathryn's first year playing middle. She worked really hard to establish herself as an ongoing threat with powerful attack and smart play. She had her peak performance at the state tournament."

Davis wraps up the all- league picks. She finished with 1,066 assists, which leads the state in all classifications. She also tallied 138 digs, and 53 aces.

"Holly took over the sole responsibility of setting this year," said Rush. "She worked really hard to run the offense effectively and put her hitters in the best possible situations offensively. Holly works hard to be a positive and supportive leader on the floor and is an extension of the coaches in running the offense."

Rush was named Coach of the Year for the second consecutive year and said, "It's an honor to be recognized for all the hard work put into this season. I'm lucky to have a great team, that I call 'the Dream Team.' They make me look good. I'm so proud of the girls and my ability to coach them, and appreciate the league coaches for recognizing me as Coach of the Year."
