While Paton-Churdan’s Megan Carey typically produced gaudy numbers on the court, it’s the postseason honors that will ultimately etch her among the all-time greats. 

The senior solidified her place in the school record books this past fall, securing her third consecutive Rolling Valley, all-conference first team selection following the 2018 season. 

The consistent outside hitter was one of the league’s best offensive players, tallying a career-high 251 kills (3rd in the RVC), at a rate of 3.54 kills per set, the second-best mark in the RVC.

Ar-We-Va senior Emilee Danner led the conference with more than 424 kills and a 4.94 kills per set average. Carey also recorded 42 blocks and 32 digs, in addition to 24 aces. 

Carey wrapped up her P-C career with 687 kills in four years of varsity action. The Rockets stumbled in their regional quarterfinal match a few weeks back, losing 3-1 to Glidden-Ralston. 

Danielle Hoyle’s conference-leading 64 aces (0.9 aces per set) earned the sophomore second team honors. She also produced 148 kills, which was the ninth-best mark in the league. Hoyle’s 45 blocks were eighth-best in the RVC, in addition to her 107 digs. 

Senior Jenna Beyers joined Hoyle on the second team, tallying 99 kills and 29 aces, in addition to a team-best 196 digs, the 11th-most in the RVC. 

Glidden-Ralston’s Emma Hannasch led the league with 444 digs while Danner was tops in blocks with a staggering 110 blocks, 19 more than Woodbine’s Alexa Steinkuehler. 

Ar-We-Va won the 2018 Rolling Valley Conference championship with a 7-1 record. 

Paton-Churdan finished with a 4-4 record, slotting them sixth overall in the nine-team Rolling Valley Conference.
