Liberty-Benton senior Hannah Warrington and Ottawa-Glandorf senior Taylor Alt led their teams to stellar seasons and landed spots on the all-Ohio first team for the second straight year as the Ohio High School Volleyball Coaches Association released its all-state selections for the 2019 season.
Warrington was a first-team selection in Division III. She helped the Eagles win the Division III state championship for their first state title in school history. The 5-foot-6 outside hitter totaled a team-high 358 digs, along with 226 kills and 36 aces on a 28-2 Eagles’ team that slammed more than 1,200 kills this season.
Alt was also named to the Division III first team. The 6-0 outside hitter led the Titans (25-3) to their third regional final in school history. She pounded a team-high 336 kills, served a team-high 66 aces and added 249 digs.
Four other area players also received all-Ohio recognition.
Izzy Granger, a 6-0 sophomore outside hitter for L-B, was second-team all-Ohio in Division III. She led the powerful Eagles’ offensive attack with 317 kills, served a team-high 43 aces and collected 335 digs.
In Division IV, Leipsic senior setter Lyndie Hazelton and junior middle hitter Liz Scheckelhoff were named to the honorable mention list.
Hazelton dished out 828 assists and went over the 1,000 career assist mark early in the season. She had just 16 errors in more than 2,200 attempts, and also had a team-high 46 aces.
Scheckelhoff had 290 kills and 53 blocks for a Leipsic team that was 22-3 overall, went unbeaten in the Putnam County League and finished second to L-B in the Blanchard Valley Conference.
Also in the BVC, Arcadia senior middle hitter Lea Pessell was an honorable mention selection in Division IV. Pessell smacked a team-high 325 kills for the 20-5 Redskins, who finished third in the BVC.
