Three truly outstanding senior county volleyball players finished their fabulous careers with the distinction of being named All-State. In Class AA, Chatfield libero Alex Duxbury earned her third such recognition. She was second in the 3-Rivers in aces (59) and serve receive percentage (94.47) in 2013, 7th in digs whilst helping Chatfield to a Section 1AA runner-up. Alex finished with 1,665 career digs and three All-Conference designations. She will play college volleyball at 6-time Division II National Champion Concordia University in St. Paul. Fillmore Central and Mabel-Canton senior OH’s Taylor Case and Belle Sand are Class A All-State. Case led the 3-Rivers with 449 kills and 409 digs (was 2nd and 6th per set respectively). She also led the league in hitting (34.59) and serve receive percentage (98.02) while being the 4th most efficient server (97.10). She took her Falcons to a state runner-up and finished her five-year career with 1,392 kills (#1 in FC history), 1,375 digs, a .320 career hitting percentage, and four A-C recognitions. Sand too concluded her career a four-time A-C player, the four-time SEC Player of the Year. Leading her squad in kills and digs in 2013, she is third all-time in each on the M-C list with 1,276 and 1,394 respectively. Sand came in with two All-State Honorable Mention’s, Case an All-State HM in 2012.

That trio heads their respective All-Conference teams. In the 3-Rivers, FC and Chatfield each had four players selected. Joining Case are Tori Peterson (senior RH), Morgan Malley (junior S), and Leah Scheevel (junior MH). Malley and Peterson were each A-C in 2012. Malley’s 1,032 assists was tops in the 3-Rivers. Joining Duxbury are Kirsten Keefe (junior OH), Brook Irish (junior MH), and Gabrielle Salisbury (senior S). Keefe was A-C a season ago. Salisbury finishes her career with over 1,000 set assists. Two R-P Trojans also made the list, senior’s Kendra Crawford (libero) and Keela Brand (OH). It is Crawford’s second such selection. She finishes her fine four-year career with 1,450 digs. In the SEC, M-C had six girls selected A-C. In addition to Sand, seniors Lydia Geving (OH) and Carly McCabe (S) each notched their third A-C selection. Sara Lind (senior MH), Christine Lee (senior libero), and Coranda Vickerman (freshman setter/RH) also made the All-League team. McCabe ended her career second on the M-C all-time list in assists (2,578), fifth in digs (967). Geving ended first in ace serves (487), fif .....
