First Team

Sarah Kuderka, Holy Redeemer: A junior libero, Kuderka was the glue in the Royals’ back row, and one of the best in the state. The Wyoming Valley Conference’s Defensive Player of the Year, Kuderka was also an all-state selection in 2017. She finished with 133 service points and nine aces in league play.

Julia Andrejko, Holy Redeemer: In her first season as an attacker, Andrejko was one of the featured hitters in the Royals’ offense. A first-team WVC athlete and also an all-state selection, the junior finished with nearly 100 kills and more than 200 service points.

Kasey Radginski, Nanticoke: The senior was one of the key attackers in helping Nanticoke win the district’s 3A title. A two-time Times-Leader first-team selection, the senior was fifth in the WVC with 173 kills and added 33 blocks. Radginski was also selected to the league’s first team.

Jilann Baron, Nanticoke: There is no denying the impact Baron on the Trojans’ run to the district championship, racking up nearly 40 kills in two district playoff games. She finished with 130 kills and led the team in service points with 196.

Gracie Giza, Valley West: A 6-foot attacker, Giza will leave as one of the best the program has seen in recent years. She’s a three-time first-team selection at the Times Leader and racked up 700 kills in conference play during her last three years. In 2017, she led the conference with 252 kills and 64 blocks as the WVW won 15 matches in the WVC.

Chloe Delp, Meyers: Arguably, no one player meant as much to their team as Delp did at Meyers. A do-it-all player, she was the court leader in all the Mohawks’ rotations. Her numbers show that. She finished with almost 80 kills, 25 blocks, 282 assists and 127 service points. She was a second-team WVC selection.

Caitlyn Pike, Dallas: Pike was the floor general as Dallas finished in the upper half of the Wyoming Valley Conference. A first-team all-league selection, the senior was second in the conference with 362 assists and led the Mountaineers in service points with 167.

Coach of the Year

Jocelyn Robertson, Meyers: For years, Meyers struggled near the bottom of the league, finished with a combined six wins between 2013-2015. But Robertson turned it around for the Mohawks in 2017, which included 11 wins in the league and a berth in the District 2 Class 2A semifinals. Meyers picked up victories against normal WVC playoff contenders like North Pocono, Crestwood, Berwick and Dallas.
