KINGMAN - Glance over the classes of the eight outstanding young ladies who were named to the 2015 Miner's All-City Volleyball team to see that there are four sophomores and a freshman, and it is logical to deduce that the future is bright for volleyball in the city's three high schools.
The analysis of stats, the memories of matches over the course of the season, and the many conversations that are included into the compiling of the all-city teams make for a lot of fun in the editorial department here at the Miner.
Unfortunately, a little angst always comes along with it when "cuts" have to be made. They are always hard and they make it a job.
Shout outs go to Kingman's Kim Carroll and Anyssa Fuhrmeister. Carroll had a solid year with 84 kills and 37 blocks, and Fuhrmeister served at a 91-percent clip with eight aces.
Academy's Shaunti Short was outstanding and quarterbacked the Lady Tigers. Coach Ken David appreciated her unselfishness and that she understood how important her setter role for the Academy was to the team.
Lee Williams's Khori Cobanovich and Madi Arave were also present in the arguments. Cobanovich scooped up 131 digs on the season and served 16 aces on 88.2 percent serving. Arave came up with 125 digs, 10 aces and made 86.2 percent of her serves.
