The York Daily Record/Sunday News has unveiled its 2009 Div. I girls' volleyball all-stars.
Player of the Year
   --- Lauren Magalski, Spring Grove: The senior libero amassed 459 digs. But she also had the touch on the serve, scoring 80 aces this year. She added 43 kills and 41 assists, leading the Rockets to a Division I championship.
 
First team
   --- Chelsea Clemens, Central York: Clemens was one of five YAIAA representatives in the PVCA District 3 Volleyball Showcase. And the hitter proved she belonged, serving up a seven-point run in a nail-biter.
   --- Kristen Fickes, Dallastown: The senior ran the offense for the Wildcats, dishing out a team-high 299 assists and adding 50 kills of her own. Fickes also led her team with 60 aces and notched 86 digs.
   --- Angie Folkenroth, Red Lion: A setter, Folkenroth posted 223 assists and had 52 kills in league play for Division I runner-up Red Lion. She also had a 92.4 service percentage and a 65.6 serve-receive percentage.
   --- Ali Gantz, Spring Grove: Gantz's deft touch at setter helped propel the Rockets to a Division I crown. The senior put up an impressive 913 assists in running the offense, contributing 38 aces and 32 kills as well.
   --- Maggie Hoff, Spring Grove: An all-around threat for Division I champs, Hoff had 241 kills and 41 aces offensively. She also gave a good performance defensively, with 182 digs.

   --- Haley Livingston, New Oxford: A co-captain for the Colonials, Livingston led her team in assists with 439 and her 41 aces were also good enough for the team lead. Livingston also chipped in 17 blocks and nine kills.
   --- Claire Sindlinger, Spring Grove: Sindlinger proved to be the main front-row threat in a tough Rocket lineup. She led her team with 343 kills and .302 hitting percentage. She also had 83 digs, 56 blocks and 44 aces.
   --- Tayler Vebares, Red Lion: It was tough being an opposing hitter when Vebares was on the other side this year. Her 100 blocks in league play were a school record for a single season. She also had 121 kills and 25 aces.

 
Coach of the year
   --- Dawn Myers, Spring Grove: Myers followed up a successful 2008 season with another dominant campaign. Under her guidance, the Rockets posted an undefeated, 14-0 record in Division I play, while losing only one game along the way.

Spring Grove took that momentum into the postseason, riding it all the way to Class AAA finals, where the Rockets dropped a tough match against Hempfield.

That perfomance earned the Rockets a berth in the PIAA tournament, where Spring Grove eventually saw their season come to end with a hard-fought loss to Cardinal O'Hara.
 
Second team
   --- Lauren Miller, Central York; Kadi McCoy, Dallastown; Jordan Haines, Dallastown; Leah Collier, Northeastern; Courtney Dietz, Red Lion; Jackie Reichard, Red Lion; Kristin Martinak, South Western; Katie Harman, South Western
