Middle of success

Frye a key part of strong Logansport volleyball teams

Logansport’s volleyball program has enjoyed a successful run in recent years.

In the middle of that success the last three years has been middle hitter Paulie Frye.

Frye, a 5-foot-9 senior, led the Berries with 45 blocks this season. She was fifth on the team in kills with 98.

“We ran some slides with her and some 32 plays where she hit from the left-hand side and she’s got a lot of power, more than people think,” Logan coach Jon Vernon said. “She put it on some people this year. She almost hurt some kids; she hit a kid in the face one time.

“She played with a lot of effort. She’s a real good kid and a good worker.”

During Frye’s three-year run in the middle for the Berries, they won 24, 26 and 19 matches.

Though they took a bit of a dip this season at 19-14, Vernon noted they toughened their schedule this season and they had a number of close losses that could have gone either way against tough opponents. The Berries did win the county tournament for the second straight year.

Frye also scored 154 service points on the season that included 15 aces. She added 59 digs.

“She had a high serving percentage. She did a good job of playing in the back row,” Vernon said. “She really improved as the year went along. I was really impressed with her passing this year. She did a really good job.”

The following is a question-and-answer session with Frye.

Q. Of the sports you play, which is your favorite? Why?

A. My favorite would have to be volleyball because I started in the fourth grade and it has been a huge part of my life ever since.

Q. How did you first get started in sports? At what age?
