In the past, I have never envied anyone who had to put together an all-area team, and after completing this one, I absolutely can relate to the challenge this project presented.

Even though I have only covered about two-thirds of a volleyball season here, this area has some of the state’s most talented players and teams. Choosing a player of the year was the biggest challenge as multiple girls were deserving, and I tried to do my homework with these selections for not just the individual awards, but the entire all-area team.
