McPHERSON – The Kansas Volleyball Association recently announced the recipients of All-Academic Awards and awarded a team Academic Award to the McPherson High volleyball team as well as naming seven members of the Lady Bullpup spikers to first-team honors, while also earning honorable mentions for two other team members.

  • Lauren Labertew
  • Katie Berg
  • Sophia Herrera

Earning individual All-Academic honorable mention honors were Lady Bullpups:

Congratulation to the Lady Bullpups as a team and as individuals for being able to keep their grades up while working with a very busy schedule.

As Lady Bullpup volleyball Head Coach Christy Doile noted, “I know there are long nights, studying when you don’t want to, studying content you have zero interest in, communicating with teachers and doing all those little things that help you achieve your academic success. Stay disciplined and keep up the hard work. Our coaching staff appreciates your effort and we are proud of you!”
