Seymour volleyball concludes season with awards


The Seymour High School volleyball program concluded its season with an awards program at the middle school on Monday evening.

The Owls finished 17-15 overall in 2018. In Hoosier Hills Conference play, SHS had a strong 5-2 record, which placed them second.

Angie Lucas returned to coach the varsity team after stepping away for four years to follow her daughter, Jessica, and the Western Kentucky University volleyball team. Lucas recently wrapped up her 24th year of coaching the Owls.

After opening remarks, Lucas introduced her team. Twenty different players received varsity awards. Four-year letter winners included seniors Emily Corcoran, Makenna Fee and Jessica Blevins.

Blevins was named the Owls’ Most Valuable Player for a second straight season. The captain had a team-high 237 kills on 696 attempts with a kill percentage of .194.

Both Blevins and Fee received All-HHC first team honors. Junior Chloe Criswell was named to the HHC honorable mention.

Across eight schools, 12 total players earned All-HHC status. An additional 10 received honorable mention honors.

Criswell received the coaches award and senior Morgan Bobb was the most improved.

The Laura Culp Mental Attitude Award went to sophomore Lauren Knieriem.

Blevins, Bobb, Corcoran, Fee, Jenna Gray and Elizabeth Wehrkamp all graduate from the Owls’ program.

The Owls made big improvements this season after going 8-25 in 2017.

Lucas said that the staff measured success based on the progress made on teamwork and chemistry throughout the season, and that the coaches stressed the importance of accountability this year.

Prior to the varsity awards, junior varsity coach Mackenzie Wieneke and freshman coach Olivia Hanner introduced their teams. Sara Clark and Steve Mackey were varsity assistant coaches this fall.
