Bryl Contreras, Canyon, Sr. L

One of the state’s top libero returns for her senior season as a cemented leader of the Lady Eagles. Last season, the District 3-4A Libero of the Year racked up 906 digs with 65 kills.

Hannah Shipman, Amarillo High, Sr. S

Shipman leads a group of seven seniors on a very experienced Lady Sandies squad. The 5-foot-9 setter hopes to improve on a junior campaign that saw her dish out 892 assists. 

Taryn Galt,Tascosa, Sr. OH

The talented outside hitter returns after a great junior year for the Lady Rebels. Galt was stellar all of 2018, ending the season with 276 kills and 36 aces.

Zoe Parker, Randall, Sr. OH

If Parker’s junior season was any indication, first-year Randall coach Haleigh Burns is in for a treat of a season. Parker helped the Lady Raiders to the UIL Class 5A state tournament with 387 digs, 87 aces and 286 kills. 

Addison Tiffin, Bushland, Sr. MB

The reigning District 1-3A MVP is an electrifying player in the middle for the Lady Falcons. The sky is the limit for the senior who averaged 3.1 blocks per set and 1.58 blocks per set. 

Zoe Fry, Sanford-Fritch, Sr., MB

Being a four-year starter a trip to the UIL state tournament is the only piece missing from an  already impressive resume for the 6-foot-1 middle blocker. As a junior, Fry pounded 661 kills and 177 blocks.

Darcy Dodd, Hereford, Sr. OH

The six rotation player returns as a senior for a Hereford team that brings back plenty of experience. Dodd had 250 kills, 200 digs with 75 blocks and 50 aces last season

Stevie Reyneke, Randall, Sr. MB

Reyneke is another veteran piece back for  Burns. The reliable senior posted 259 kills during the Lady Raiders run to state last season.

Chelsie Freeman, Amarillo High, Sr. MB

Freeman compliments Shipman as another senior providing experience for first-year head coach Mike Moffitt. Freeman totaled 285 kills, 80 blocks and 52 aces last year. 

Sydnee Wackler, Dumas, Sr. S

Wackler’s 639 assists, 329 digs and 62 aces played a vital role in helping the Demonettes claim the District 4-4A championship last year. 

Emma Crenshaw, Canyon, Sr. OH

The District 3-4A MVP is back on a very talented Lady Eagles squad. Crenshaw is an exceptional talent that totaled 341 kills during her junior campaign. 

Kayden Bridges, Tascosa, Sr. L

Bridges may have been the Lady Rebels most consistent player and unquestionably their  defensive specialist. As a junior she garnered District 2-6A Defensive Player of the Year honors.

Getsi Carrasco, Caprock, Sr. L

Caprock showed major improvement in 2018, and Carrasco was a big reason why. The Lady Longhorns leader was the District 3-5A Defensive Player of the Year last season. 

Cynarah Rodriguez, Highland Park, Sr. S

All Rodriguez did as a junior was dish out 481 assists, make 173 digs, slam 122 kills adding 87 aces. She also helped the Lady Hornets advance to the UIL Class 2A state tourney for the first time in school history.  

Madison Todd, Dalhart, Sr. OH

The Lady Wolves senior has quietly put together one of the more better careers in the Amarillo area. It was hard to be more steady than Todd last year knocking down 320 kills, dishing 300 assists with 305 digs.
