In addition to Daily Times Player of the Year Alice Roberts of Strath Haven, the rest of the All-Delco team includes:

Caitlin Fitz, Cardinal O'Hara: A senior outside hitter who guided the Lions to the first round of the state tournament, Fitz bashed 213 kills at a .295 clip to go with 235 digs. Her versatility, evidenced by her 38 assists, 30 aces and 10 blocks, made her a multi-pronged threat for teams to deal with. She played every position except middle blocker and libero at one point this season and finished her career with the second-most digs (685) in school history. Fitz was rewarded for her play with All-Catholic and All-District 12 selections.

Andrea Hartman, Penncrest: A senior, Hartman was the biggest reason for the Lions' vast improvement from a year ago. She scrambled for 528 digs and had 351 service reception passes for a team that finished third in the Central League. Hartman was rewarded for her play with All-Central and third-team All-District One selections. "Defensively, we couldn't have done it without her,' Penncrest coach Jen Shrader said. "She made the first play almost every play to set up our hitters and with three to four girls in every rotation either being a freshman or a sophomore, she definitely led our team.'

Jenna Hostetler, Garnet Valley: The leader on a defensively-oriented team, Hostetler was a force to be reckoned with and was a major reason why the Jaguars were first in the Central League in the regular season and made it to the third round of the District One tournament. The junior libero collected All-Central and first-team All-District One honors and was the co-Player of the Year runnerup. "She really was the backbone of our team,' Jaguars coach Mark Clark said. "She did everything for us and she goes all-out every single play. She doesn't take plays off and was all over the place for us.'

Chelsea Jones, Sun Valley: The unquestioned heart and soul of the Vanguards and a co-Player of the Year runnerup, Jones did it all for Sun Valley as a middle blocker and setter. She dished out 473 assists to go with 312 kills, a rare combination, and also piled up 54 blocks en route to being tabbed as an All-Ches-Mont American Division and third-team All-District One choice. The senior recorded her long-sought first and last career triple-double thanks to an incredible 26-assist, 21-kill, 14-dig, five-block effort that enabled Sun Valley to upset Strath Haven in the second round of district play.

Madison McCunney, Sun Valley: The other half of the Vanguards' dynamic duo, McCunney exploded onto the scene by racking up 376 kills with an impressive .325 hitting average and 58 blocks. An explosive athlete with a powerful swing, McCunney was flat-out dominant in the upset over Strath Haven, putting together 27 kills, 17 assists, 15 digs and six aces. An All-Ches-Mont American Division and a second-team All-District One selection, the junior outside middle blocker/setter/outside hitter hasn't selected a college yet.

Bridget Scott, Strath Haven: One of the most powerful hitters in Delco, Scott blossomed in her final season as a Panther and teamed up with Roberts to give the Panthers the best tandem of outside hitters in the county. Scott helped the Panthers win the Central League and make it to the second round of the District One tournament with her 239 kills at a .303 percent hitting percentage to go with a team-best 285 digs and 52 blocks. The senior collected All-Central and second-team All-District One honors to go along with her first All-Delco selection.
