Dorris earns top honor

Pioneer junior headlines All-Loganland volleyball team

(Continued)

Nies added Dorris’ stats might be a little low because it took awhile for new managers to get the hang of keeping them accurately.

“She’s a phenomenal athlete and a player that is a lot of fun to watch. She’s a great kid from a great family. Her two older brothers were phenomenal athletes. It runs in the family.”

The Panthers lost in regional play in a five-set heartbreaker at Washington Township that included a controversial call on match point that would have given them the regional title but went against them.

“It was a tough end to the season. I wish we would have gone a lot further,” Dorris said. “Overall I was really happy with everyone and how they played. I couldn’t ask for a better team. I wish we would have pulled through at regionals and honestly thought we should have.”

The Panthers will lose a talented senior class including three starters but will reload for next season.

“I’m looking forward to it a lot,” Dorris said. “We have a bunch of juniors. Next year we’ll have six seniors. We’ve already talked about next season and have had a lot of team bonding. We want a state championship really bad.”

Dorris didn’t go out for basketball this year to concentrate on club volleyball and get ready for what is looking to be a special senior season.

The following are capsules of the rest of this year’s All-Loganland volleyball team.

Bethany Brogdon, Winamac

The 5-5 senior was the Warriors’ starting libero the last two seasons. She posted 641 digs this year for 18-15 Winamac, which ranked her third in Class 2A and seventh in the entire state according to VarVee.com.

“She is a very good athlete, starting and playing volleyball, basketball and softball,” Winamac coach Cathy DeFries said. “Her athleticism makes her a great defensive player. She has great instincts and can read hitters very well. She led the state in digs in 2A volleyball for a part of the season and finished in the top 10. She led our team in digs and was second in serve attempts (393) and aces (36). She was a great leader for us as a lone senior. She was very fun to watch and made some amazing saves this year defensively.”
