Going undefeated in District 24-4A catches the attention of everyone competing in the district, especially coaches who vote on all-district honors. To the surprise of very few, members of the Burnet High School volleyball team, at 10-0, received several individual awards because of their outstanding play during the 2022 season.
Junior MaeSyn Gay was named the co-district Most Valuable Player, while junior Zaria Solis was named the district’s offensive MVP, senior Addie Grace Hernandez was named the co-defensive MVP, and sophomore Camryn Courtney is the co-newcomer of the year.
Named first team all-district are senior McKenzie Davis and sophomore Lauren Howton,
Second team all-district members are senior Lainey Rye and junior Reagan Shipley.
Honorable mention went to junior Addie Houston and sophomore Laney Huffman.
“Our girls were thought highly of by our district coaches, and we appreciate their votes to recognize our athletes,” head coach Crystal Shipley said.
She was voted the coach of the year, though she would say that’s an honor she shares with her staff and players.
Academic all-district honors went to Sadie Campbell, freshman Journey Denton, senior Samantha Gaylord, Courtney, Davis, Gay, Hernandez, Houston, Howton, Huffman Rye, Shipley and Solis.
As proud as I am of each of the individual awards, I have to say what makes me the proudest is that all 13 of these young ladies earned academic all-district and all six seniors have been named to the Texas High School Coaches Association academic all-state team,” Shipley said. “Not only are they incredible athletes, but they also take care of business in the classroom. Thank you to their teachers who also play a huge role in pushing them to be great and keeping them caught up.”
