Chase County volleyball players represent 25 percent of the 2014 SPVA All-Conference Team.
With three Lady Longhorns on the 12-member first and second teams, that represents one-fourth of the all-conference players this year.
Seniors MaKenna Ketter and Paige Spady were voted onto the first team, while sophomore setter Taylin McNair made the second team.
In addition, junior Cheyanne Kuhlmann earned honorable mention status.
Coach Jodie Schuller attended the SPVA meeting last Wednesday, when the team selections were made. Coaches can nominate their players for consideration, but cannot vote for their own players.
Ketter and Spady were the top two hitters on the Chase County team this season, which finished with a recorded-setting 26-3 season. McNair was the team’s setter and Kuhlmann started as the libero defensive specialist.
Here is the full slate of SPVA All-Conference player selections this year.
MaKenna Ketter and Paige Spady, Chase County; Danika Daum, Kimball; Tracy Blake and Josie Cox, Maxwell; and Alli Skala, North Platte St. Pat’s.
Taylin McNair, Chase County; AdreAnna Ernest, Bridgeport; Tessa Otzel and Brooke Munsen, Hershey; Madison Biesecker, Kimball; Mira White, Sutherland.
Cheyanne Kuhlmann, Chase County; Brooke Harding, Bridgeport; Jordyn Childears, North Platte St. Pat’s; and Claire Maaliao, Perkins County.
