EMILY DUNN, Skyline, volleyball: This senior helped her team in ways that can't be measured statistically.
"She was a team captain, student body officer and always had a smile on her face," said Eagles head coach Jami Hutchins of the outside hitter. "She was really a role model for younger students, and she was certainly a solid leader for our team all year."
Part of what made this very athletic and effective hitter so key as a leader is her consistency. Her efforts helped the Eagles to a second-place finish in the 5A tournament."Her hitting, her blocking and her serving were always really consistent," Hutchins said. "And she just played an outstanding tournament."
