The Lady Chargers fought through a lot of ad- versity this season to fin- ish 4-23. Junior Lily Willis earned the Kiwanis Mental Attitude Award. Willis was selected for the award because she is a great player who will step up into any role in order to help the team. "She doesn't care where she is at on the floor, she just wants to be there," Pike Central varsity coach Brandi Chestnut said. "She stepped in to help us out in the Evansville Central tournament, and helped out in the libero position. She helped out in a few oth- er games in the libero posi- tion, but she wore a few dif- ferent hats for us this season and never once complained. She always came to practice with a positive attitude and positive energy. When she stepped into a position, she did it with determination to do her absolute best to help the team." Senior Audrey Keepes earned the Varsity Serving Award and sophomore Erika Vinnedge received the Var- sity Blocking Award. "This was a very special group of seniors," Chest- nut said. "They have a gen- uine friendship with each other and they have been friends for many years. They cheered each other on this season and were great lead- ers on the team. I will always remember their close friend- ship." Freshman Ashlyn Shoul- tz was named the Most Valu- able Player of the junior var- sity squad. Shoultz had the most blocks (5) on the team, scored 99 total points and had 27 aces. "She proves to have a solid and consistent serve and is able to place the ball where her coaches ask her," Pike Central junior varsity coach Tina Gulledge said. "This is a skill that many players her age struggle with ob- taining." Shoultz is an aggressive left side hitter with 55 kills on 235 attempts. "Ashlyn has a lot of game sense," Gulledge said. "She's had the opportunity to play for a semi-local travel league which has given her the advantage of multi-lev- el play and serious compe- tition. She competes in the offseason with some of the best volleyball players in the area and Ashlyn is eager to share that knowledge with her teammates. She is an as- set and I'm excited to watch her develop over the next three years." Sophomore Maddie Lamey received the Most Improved Award for the ju- nior varsity squad. "I was pleasantly pleased with Maddie's hard work this season," Gulledge said. "She became my go-to when I was looking for a girl to consistently and effectively serve the ball. More import- ant than her performance on the floor, I've watched Mad- die's confidence grow tre- mendously over the last two years. That's something a stat cannot measure, a score won't tell and a record won't prove." Delaney Welch was awarded the freshman MVP based on her contributions to this young team. Welch took on the role of setter for the freshman and junior var- sity teams this season. She finished the season with 132 assists. "She also greatly con- tributed to her team with 80 points scored on her serve," Gulledg said. "Del- aney is a team leader with a strong work ethic. She's all business on the court with a great deal of hustle and drive." Reagan Craig received the freshman Most Im- proved Award. "It was evident to me ear- ly on that Craig would be a forerunner for this award af- ter watching her gain a great deal of skill and knowledge in the preseason. "She proved herself to be a versatile player as she stepped into the role of freshman setter late in the season," Gulledge said. "I look for Reagan to continue to grow as an athlete." The final award given was the Academic Award, which went to junior Neeley Cor- rell.
