Following a season in which all three Kershaw County high school volleyball teams finished in the top two of their respective regions --- with Camden and North Central capturing conference titles --- it should come as no surprise that when it came time for post-season honors to be handed out, players from these teams earned state and league laurels.

Camden junior setter/hitter Maggie Speaks won the Triple Crown for Paige Wilson’s Region 6-AAA champions as she was named the AAA state player of the year by the South Carolina Coaches Association for Women’s Sports.

In addition, Speaks was also named to the AAA All-State team while being selected as the 6-AAA player of the year, as selected by the six head coaches in the circuit.

Camden senior Kelsey Hutto was named to the AAA All-State squad while also being selected to the 4A/3A South All-Star team which will take part in this weekend’s matches at Erskine College in Due West. Hutto was also named to the all-conference squad.

Joining Hutto on the all-league team were juniors Lindsey Cobb and Brooke Maxwell.

"I am very proud of all these girls. They have worked hard to earn these honors," Wilson said of her quartet of honorees.

North Central, which won a fifth consecutive league crown after defeating Chesterfield in a one-match playoff for the championship, had a Triple Crown winner of its own in Elexis Ross.

The senior hitter was named the Region 3-A player of the year, earned class A All-State honors and was selected to the class A/AA North All-Star squad which will take part in this weekend’s matches at Erskine College in Due West.

Tiffany Rogers, a senior for Andy Johnson’s Lady Knights, was named to the class A All-State team as well as being an All-Region 3-A honoree. Joining Rogers on the all-conference team were NC teammates Ross, Samantha Snipes and Ashley Rogers.

Lugoff-Elgin, which finished second in Region 4-4A under first-year head coach Jessica Mullins, had a dual honoree.

Megan Kirkland, a junior Libero, was named to the class 4A All-State team following a season in which she also earned all-conference merits for the Lady Demons.
