Good heavens! The All-District girls volleyball team has been announced, and it’s practically a copy of the LHHS roster.

Seniors Rachael Zreet and Melanie Trostel made the cut, as did juniors Hollyn Adams, Kristen Gavigan, and Emily Hillman. MVP for District 9-5A is Caroline Henton, and Christina Flanagan is Co-Defensive Player of the Year. Matalee Reed was named Blocker of the Year, Rachel Peters was named Setter of the Year, and LH’s new coach, Melissa Christman earned Coach of the Year honors in just her first year after serving as assistant coach at Highland Park High. Speaking of HP, my adorable niece Abby Carroll, who plays there, earned a spot on the 10-4A squad.

Congratulations Wildcats for your well-deserved honors. We had a great time cheering for you and enjoying your tenacious play and enthusiastic love of the game.
