Dallison was the team leader for the Lady ‘Jills at the net with her powerful spikes and blocks. Her ability to guard the net along with her timing on offense made her a threat to opposing teams every time the Lumberjills took the floor. As a server she recorded 87 points and 21 aces.

Henderson led the improved Lady Hornets in about every statistic imaginable. Her serving percentage was a team high and she used her hustle and determination to keep the opposition at bay. At the net she showed good timing and a hard swing to record 83 kills on the year.

Raper was also the heart and soul for the young Lady Pilots squad, making her presence felt in every match played. She was tough at the net and the back row, while keeping the young Pilot team together with her play on and off the floor.
