BLACKFOOT — It has been a week or so since the last All-Bingham County team has been released, but I decided it's time for another.
So today we take a look at the All-Bingham County volleyball team chosen by yours truly.
This was no easy task with so many excellent volleyball players in the county, but I feel I did my best.
Unlike previous teams this one will have three teams a first, second and an honorable mention. And while I could be brave and pick a player of the year I will leave that for next year.
Without further ado…
Bailey Nelson — Firth
The junior has been an important part of the Cougars squad for the last three seasons and was one of the big reasons for the teams run towards the 2A state title.
Nelson recorded 404 kills to lead the team, 259 digs, again a team best and 20 blocks.
Nelson was a dominant part of the Cougars front line that absolutely stopped opponents attack all season long.
Firth finished the season 29-5.
Jordyn Park — Firth
The senior setter was the spark the got the Cougars attack rolling.
Park recorded 755 assists on the season and seemed to always be in the right place at the right time for the Cougars.
Firth head coach Carla Reeves also had high price for Park as the setter helped Firth to a second place finish in the 2012 state tournament to go along with this years title.
Brylie Bair — Snake River
Of all the players in Bingham County none may hit harder the Bair.
The senior averaged double-figure kills for the season and more often than not sent opponents scattering with the power of her hits.
Bair was a big part of the Panthers wining the 3A state title this season and when Bair graduates next spring she will leave with her fair share of state titles.
Hannah Murdock — Snake River
Murdock is another setter that sparks the offense for a state champion team.
While diminutive in size, the senior packs a powerful punch when given the opportunity.
Murdock has a deadly jump serve and is more than willing to lay out of a dig from any position on the floor.
A perennial first team all-conference player Murdock has established herself as one of the top players in Snake River history.
