Seniors Paige Regnier and Moira Pyle led a total of five Bullpup volleyball players named to the All-AVCTL Division III postseason teams announced this week.
Regnier, who will sign her letter of intent to play volleyball with Washburn University on Friday, was named to the all-league first team, along with Pyle. This is the second year in a row that Regnier has made the first team, while Pyle was a second team selection in 2012.
This honor goes along with Regnier’s Class 4A Division I All-State Tournament team, earned after the state tournament on Nov. 1 and 2. It was the second year in a row for Regnier to earn that honor, as well.
A trio of Bullpups were named to the second team in seniors Janae Barnes and Abby Pedersen and sophomore Megan Pedersen. Abby Pedersen was chosen as an honorable mention in 2012.
The Pups finished the season with a 39-4 record. MHS was knocked out of the state tournament in pool play after going 1-2, which included losses to Bishop Miege and Louisburg, the two teams that eventually finished first and second, respectively.
Rose Hill senior Kylie Pfaff was named league MVP, while Rocket coach Melissa Segovia was named coach of the year. The Rockets made it to the second day of the tournament, where they finished fourth after losses to Miege and Chanute.
