Good sports: KHS volleyball team wins AIA award

KINGMAN – Kingman Unified School District’s Kingman High School varsity volleyball team was selected as this year’s recipient of the Arizona Interscholastic Association Class 3A Conference Sportsmanship Award.

According to a KUSD news release, this award is handed out annually in each conference to the team that exhibits the highest level of sportsmanship, as voted on by the officials.

The AIA recognizes outstanding Arizona high school students, teachers, coaches, officials, administrators and schools for outstanding achievements on and off the field.

“The best part about being a part of this team is that we all work as a family, and not for our individual selves,” Adelina Starr, a junior and varsity team player at KHS said. “Being a part of this team, especially in high school, creates memories throughout the connections you make.”

The KHS girls varsity volleyball team was selected from over 40 3A teams in competition. The last time Kingman High School was selected for the AIA Sportsmanship Award was the school’s football team in 2008.

“Our coaches, players and fans were rated 18 times over the season on a scale of 1 to 5 and that is how the award was determined. We are very excited to win this award and we are very proud of our volleyball program,” Assistant Principal and Athletic Director at Kingman High School John Venenga said.

The team is led by head coach Brianna Cathers and assistant coach Tricia Cathers.

“The girls have come so far in the season. At the end of the season they worked really hard in making this a team effort and fought every day to get where they are and I am excited to see what next season brings” Cathers said.
