While Anna missed the playoffs this year, the achievements of several Lady Coyotes did not go unnoticed when District 11-4A honors were recently announced. Senior libero Julianne Curiel was named to the First Team, senior right-side hitter Lauren Schlicht was tabbed for Second Team and four Lady Coyotes — senior Bella Boyd, senior Hannah Howell, junior Lexi Stewart and junior Aubreanna Traylor - received Honorable mention nods.
“I’m proud of the honors received by our athletes,” Anna head coach Tomika Crosby said on Sunday. “Julianne Curiel has worked extremely hard this year. She played on a club team this past summer and took advantage of every opportunity to get in the gym and play volleyball and it definitely paid off this year. She truly deserves this honor.
“We started the season unsure of Lauren’s role on the team. But it didn’t take long to realize that good things happen when she was on the court. She was our utility player. I’m glad that she received this honor. Our Honorable Mention players are all deserving of this recognition for their overall contributions to our team.”
Earning Academic All-District honors for Anna were Boyd, Curiel, Schlicht, Howell, Stewart, Qua Fisher, Rachel Goade, Brooke Hodge, Alana Pina, Lauren Morrison, Haley Thornburg, FeKyra Wells and Madison Williams.
Congratulations to all these Lady Coyotes.
