Volleyball: Chargers reward a 20-win season
The Brandon-Evansville volleyball team bounced back from a 12-16 season in 2017 to finish 20-7 this past fall, which meant there was plenty to honor for a group that got to within one win of the Section 6A championship match.
Senior setter Madison Quinn and sophomore outside hitter Bailey Schaefer shared co-MVP honors on the team. Quinn finished off her career with 729 assists this season, while also chipping in 45 ace serves, 67 kills, 59 blocks and 106 digs.
Schaefer was her favorite target at the net as she had far and away the most kills on the team with 354. Schaefer also led the Chargers with 73 ace serves to go with 174 digs and 17 blocks.
Junior right-side hitter Brittany Korkowski earned the Most Improved Award. She had 95 kills and 116 digs, while adding 19 aces, eight blocks and 26 assists.
Sophomore defensive specialist Korrie Randt earned the final team honor as she took home the Team Coach Award. That award is given to the player who exemplifies character and a team-first attitude. Randt led the Chargers' cheering section from the bench and also had 21 aces, 32 digs and six assists on the court.
The Chargers won the Little Eight Conference with a perfect 10-0 record. Quinn, Schaefer and Mikenna Pattrin were first-team all conference, while senior Sara Jacobson was second-team All-LEC. Korkowski was also an honorable-mention selection.
In addition to on-the-court accolades, Quinn was an academic all-state award winner for her work in the classroom.
