November 10, 2009


Free State High senior Chantay Caron has been selected to participate in the Greater Kansas City Volleyball Coaches Association’s MO-KAN All-Star Match on Nov. 15 at Avila University.

The MO-KAN teams are comprised of volleyball players from the Kansas City area who showed outstanding play throughout the season. Most of the large-class selections came from the Sunflower League and the Eastern Kansas League.

Tonganoxie’s Abby Eisman was named to the Kansas small-class team.

Caron, who was named first-team All-Sunflower League for leading the league in blocks (190) and kill efficiency (0.61), was the only player from Lawrence to be selected.

Caron also finished in the top 10 in kills, with 246, where she was joined by Lawrence High junior Lillian Schonewise (285 kills, 108 blocks and a 0.36 kill efficiency). Other LHS and Free State players to finish in the top 10 in the Sunflower League’s major volleyball categories were:

• serve percentage — LHS’s Alex Kincaid (first, 100); Free State’s Katelyn Wyatt (fifth, 95.34), Free State’s Rachel Heeb (sixth, 95.31), LHS’s Jasmyn Turner (seventh, 95.21) and LHS’s Mary Coldsnow (ninth, 94.67).

congratulations Chantay! and all the players from Free State and Lawrence High that were mentioned. ...interesting fact about the serve percentage stats... LHS's player cited as first with 100% serving accuracy (never once mising a serve!) had 29 serves total listed for the year - the least in the top ten. Free State's Wyatt (5th) had 365 serves for the year - the most in the top ten. Go Katelyn! :-)
