MVP: Fariel LaMountain received the MVP Award for her outstanding reaction skills and knowledge of the game. She made All-Aroostook team.

Coach's Award: Samantha Zwecker was awarded the Coach's Award for her leadership qualities throughout the season. She was always early for practice and available to help the team with any concerns. She also had great communication skills throughout the season and had the loudest "stretch counting" that I have ever heard on a sports team.

Most Improved: Dolcie Tanguay was the Most Improved player due to her drive to learn about volleyball. Her progress throughout the season was definitely noticeable.

Great job, volleyball players!
