After a strong season that saw them reach the fourth round of the playoffs, the Commerce High School Lady Tiger volleyball team filled up the list of All-District honors.
The Lady Tigers finished the season with a record of 30-12 and were Co-Champions of District 13-3A with a 7-1 mark, tying with Prairiland for the top spot.
Commerce went on to defeat Queen City, West Rusk and New Diana before falling to eventual State Champions Callisburg. The Lady Tigers were one of only two teams to even win a set off of the champions in the playoffs.
Now with the season over, several Commerce Players were given All-District superlatives for District 13-3A.
Departing senior Sarah Anthraper had been a strong leader on the team all season, and was named District Co-MVP alongside Prairiland’s Baylor Sessums.
Joining her was Mya Wilson, who was named Offensive Player of the Year with Mt. Vernon’s Bailey Thomas, and Landry Davidson as Setter of the Year alongside Mt. Vernon’s Sam Lowry.
Head Coach Shelley Jones was named District Coach of the Year along with Emily Vanderburg from Prairiland.
Four other Lady Tigers were listed on the All-District first and second teams, with two more joining them as honorable mentions. 10 Commerce players were named Academic All-District.
