Sunnyside Christian senior Maddy Wavrin has been named the 2011 "Player of the Year" for the Greater Columbia 1B Girls Volleyball League.
Wavrin, at 5'11", played as an outside hitter for the SCHS Lady Knights, who not only won the conference and District titles this fall, but also earned the eighth-place trophy at last weekend's 1B State volleyball tournament.
Besides Wavrin, Sunnyside Christian had three other players named to the 1B All-Opponent team. The Lady Knight league all-stars included senior Grace den Hoed, a 5'7" middle hitter; senior Alyssa Haak, a 5'5" setter/outside hitter; and sophomore Stormee Van Belle, a 5'10" middle hitter.
Also named to the 1B All-Opponent team for the just concluded volleyball season were Bickleton's Aymie Osborne and Jaime Venema.
