The all-district honors for 5-3A volleyball were announced Tuesday and seven Big Spring players are represented on the list.
As a key component defensively for the Lady Steers, libero Valerie Ross nabbed top defensive specialist in the district. Setter/middle blocker Cerbi Ritchey, middle blocker Taylor Seaton and outside hitter Desiree Anderson made first-team all-district. These three were go-to players for kills this season.
Setter Clara Benavides, outside hitter Bridgette Tuitt and defensive specialist Carson Reibe round out the list for the Lady Steers on second-team all-district.
Big Spring had a pretty good showing on the all-district honors list. Powerhouse Abilene Wylie had the most players on the list with 10, including the District MVP Bailey Wilson. Brownwood and Big Spring both had seven players on the list. Snyder and Sweetwater had three players apiece.
The Lady Steers’ season took off when district play started. They dropped matches to Wylie twice, but beat every other team twice for a second-place finish. Their season ended early though, with a bi-district playoff loss to Vernon. They only lose three seniors from this year’s squad: Belle Feaster, Anderson and Ross.
