Brunswick Academy Vikings Girls Volleyball

By Hannah Waller

The B.A. Lady Vikings, coached by Mr. Ken Warf, ended their regular season as conference champs. Overall the Vikings went 9-3 and were 6-0 at home. In tournament play, the Vikings played in the semi-final match, but fell to Kenston Forest School. Comprised of five seniors, four juniors, two sophomores, and one freshman, the B.A. Lady Vikings were fierce and determined to win. In addition to placing first in conference, several players of the B.A. team were recognized for different awards. Olivia Combs, junior setter, was named as part of the VCC All-Tournament team; Hannah Waller, senior middle and co-captain was named VCC All-Academic; Allie Pope, senior outside and co-captain, was named VCC Second-Team All Conference; the VCC recognized Naomi Sadler, sophomore outside, Sarah-Olivia Temple, junior middle, and Hannah Waller, as part of the First-Team All Conference. The Brunswick Academy varsity volleyball team has never won a regular season in almost thirty years, so this season was significant to not only the players and coach, but also for B.A. and the future of the volleyball program. Although we came out as first this season, I expect next year's team to come out even stronger with improved skills and a sharper mindset to end the season not only as conference champs, but hopefully as tournament champs as well.

Awards:

All-Academic: Hannah Waller

1st Team All-Conference: Sarah-Olivia Temple, Hannah Waller, Naomi Sadler

2nd Team All-Conference: Allie Pope

All Tournament: Olivia Combs

VCC Coach of the Year: Ken Warf
