All-Eagle Volleyball
Dec 27th, 2014 by bkirpens

ALL-EAGLE VOLLEYBALL

The Berkshire Eagle

Hope Willis

Junior, Mount Greylock

The athletic Willis was one of the Mounties’ best all-around player this year. Among her best games were a nine-ace game in a win over Monument and six aces, five kils and seven digs against Taconic.

Celia Bote

Senior, Mount Greylock

Bote was the Mounties defensive star. Some of her high games: 30 digs in a win over St. Joseph’s, 22 digs in a 3-2 marathon victory over Wahconah and 15 digs and three aces against Lenox.

Alyssa Kelly

Senior, Lee

The captain and floor leader of the Wildcats. She recorded 51 kills and added 25 aces. The most athletic player on the roster, according to coach John Warner.

Sam Farina

Senior, Lee

A great server on a great team. Farina’s 91.6 first-serve percentage with 32 aces was second overall on Lee. Her 70 kills and 31 digs were also both second on the team.

Kendra Williams

Junior, Lee

The league MVP. The best setter in the county, and one of the best in Western Mass. A serve percentage of 95.8 percent, with 77 aces, tops on the team. The hub of the Wildcats’ offense.

Makayla White

Senior, Lenox

The Millionaires’ “ace” in the hole, with a total of 76 aces on the year. Added 95 kills, 15 blocks and 170 digs, highlighting an all-around game.

Brianna Davis

Junior, Monument

The Spartans’ leader. A strong server, two of Davis’ better games were 13 aces in a 3-1 win over Mount Everett and 19 aces in a sweep of St. Joseph’s.

Jess Abbott

Junior, Mount Everett

The Eagles’ young veteran. A team leader, Abbott had 118 kills, 27 aces and 37 blocks to highlight her all-around skills.

Sam DeCarlo

Senior, Pittsfield

The teams’ principal setter. DeCarlo turned in some big numbers all year, including 24 assists and two digs in a win over Lenox; 27 assists in a tough loss to Wahconah and 32 assists in a victory over Mount Greylock.

Emily Koldys

Junior, Pittsfield

Koldys came up big in big games this year. She had 15 digs and four kills in a loss to Lee; 10 kills, 17 digs and five assists in a win over Greylock and 11 kills and four aces in a victory over Lenox.

Alyssa Doerle

Senior, Taconic

The Braves’ best all-around player. Doerle had 86 kills, 36 digs and 413 assists. One of the harder servers in the county.

Emily Jordan

Senior, Wahconah

The Warriors’ veteran leader. Jordan had 38 aces on the year and added a team-high 112 kills for tournament-tested Wahconah.

Juli McBain

Junior, Wahconah

McBain was the Warriors’ most consistent server on the season. She had a 92.1 service percentage and missed on only seven of her first serves. She added 12 aces to the stat sheet, a well.

Second team

Dagny Albano, soph., Greylock; Sam Reynolds, senior, Lee: Courtney Picard, junior, Lee; Holly Chappell, senior, Lenox; Emily Czelusniak, soph. Lenox; Jordyn Goodrich, senior, Monument; Kara Ormsbee, senior, Everett; Michaela LeBlanc, junior, PHS; Ilyssa Creamer, junior, St. Joseph’s; Leanne Hamilton, junior, St. Joseph’s; Keely Baker, senior, Taconic; Hailey Parker, junior, Wahconah.

Coach of the Year

John Warner, Lee High School.

The Wildcats posted a 16-0 regular season league record and were 19-2 overall. More importantly, Lee won all 16 of its league games with 3-0 sweeps. This is a league where three other teams (PHS, Greylock and Lenox) made the post-season. Warner is the technician behind the Wildcats’ dominance.

Match of the Year

Frontier at Lee, Oct. 1.

It certainly wasn’t the outcome for which coach Warner and his charges hoped (a 3-0 Frontier win). But bringing the four-time defending state champs to the Berkshires — and playing them tough — showed the rest of the area how far volleyball has progressed in the Berkshires.

Performance of the Year

Kendra Williams, Lee, against Ware, Nov. 3.

Williams was so consistent it was difficult to pick a truly outstanding game by the league MVP. But this 28-assist gem against Ware in the quarterfinals of the Division III Western Mass. tournament was certainly one of her best in a playoff situation as the Wildcats swept, 3-0.

All-Eagle volleyball: Sophomore Williams earns MVP honors

Ability to set up teammates for kills a key to Lee’s big season

LEE >> The only sophomore on the All-Eagle volleyball team from this fall is Lee’s Kendra Williams. And that doesn’t bode well for the rest of the county in the coming years.

Williams led the Wildcats to a 19-2 record, including a 16-0 mark in the county. In that 16-game league run, the Wildcats went 3-0 against every team in the county twice. The team did not drop a set.

Lee coach John Warner doesn’t know if that has ever happened before but it’s safe to say that it certainly doesn’t happen too often.

Lee was seeded third in the Western Mass. tournament and was defeated in the tournament semifinals by No. 2 seed Athol.

There are some very good players on the Wildcats’ roster, as there often are. But the hub of this team is Williams, one of the great all-around athletes in the county.

But more on that later. Williams is the hub of the team’s attack because she had 339 assists this year, tops on the team.

An impressive stat. But Warner looks at it in a more nuanced way.

“Her strength is in distribution of service,” said Warner. “We had six players with over 60 kills this year. Usually, you’ll see a team with one player or two with 60 or more kills. Kendra was the reason we had six. She was phenomenal.”

In addition, Williams was a tremendous server. Her service percentage was 95.8, another number that topped the team.

Williams also added 77 aces.

Back to the assists. Williams now has 746 assists for her career, and is on track to amass anywhere from 1,450 to 1,550 assists for her career. This is in a sport where a 1,000-assist career is considered outstanding.

“We’ve never had a player with 1,000 assists at Lee,” said Warner. Barring injury, Williams will pass that mark midway through her junior year.

Warner added that William’ consistency is perhaps her greatest strength.

“I’ve never seen her have a bad game,” he said. “She plays at such a high level every night.”

Warner said he’d love to see Williams play volleyball in college.

“Oh yes, she could play at the next level,” he said. “I just don’t know if she will. She’s such a tremendous all-around athlete. She plays basketball in the winter and she has a rocket arm in softball. So we’ll see. She can do anything she sets her mind to do.”
