PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Diamond Sorrells, Hanover: A Division II second team all-star last year, Sorrells earned top honors in Division III this year.
Her height and range dominated league play, propelling her team to a share of the D-III crown.
Sorrells' hard hitting and touch proved too much for defenders to handle. She collected 126 kills and 41 blocks to lead the Hawkettes in both categories.
Faith Athey, Delone Catholic: The junior middle/outside hitter was critical to the Squirettes' 11-1 division record. In an early match against Mid-Penn power Cumberland Valley, Athey collected nine blocks. This defensive presence made opposing teams take notice all season.
Kylie Hakes, Bermudian Springs: Hakes was a bright spot in an otherwise forgetful season for the Eagles. She was key in the team's five wins and anchored a young, inexperienced squad that will look to make some noise in 2011.
Jen Jarrett, Delone Catholic: The senior lefty made her presence known on both sides of the ball this season. She showed off her dual quality in a match against Cumberland Valley, where she collected nine kills and seven digs. She was also chosen to represent her team in the Officials' 25th Anniversary Showcase at season's end.
Abby Musselman, Littlestown: Musselman was known throughout Division III for a competitive spirit that allowed her to play up to the competition. In both games against co-champion Delone Catholic, Abby had 33 of her 340 assists and 17 of her 91 digs.
Logan Myers, Hanover: Myers is as tough as they come. She missed just one game with knee swelling, even though the problem persisted all season. Despite the sore joint, she collected 260 assists along the way. This determination proved valuable in the Hawkettes' first-round win in districts against James Buchanan.
Alyssa Reichart, Littlestown: Reichart's never-quit attitude was present all year for the Bolts. She garnered a team-leading 118 kills and was second on the team with 15 blocks, 89 digs and 36 aces. This determination carried into the last game of the season, where she collected 11 kills and two blocks against York Catholic to help the Bolts finish on a winning note.
Madison Senseney, Littlestown: The Bolts were 2-4 when the senior took the team on her back and refused to let Littlestown drop another match to rival Bermudian Springs. She collected 10 kills, four digs and two aces in the victory vs. the Eagles.
Nikki Snyder, Delone Catholic: The libero was a defensive specialist that was not afraid to take on some of the nastiest spikes around. Her constant presence helped elevate the Squires to a tie for the best record in Division III.
COACH OF THE YEAR
Reagan Bitler, Hanover: In his sixth year rebuilding the Hawkettes program, Bitler led his team to an 11-1 division record and a share of the title with rival Delone Catholic.
His Hawkettes qualified for the YAIAA tournament but were bounced early by Division I powerhouse Spring Grove.
He quickly prepared his team for its second straight District 3 appearance, where the Hawkettes beat perennial powerhouse James Buchanan and advance to pool play.
