White House’s Megan Thompson was named to the 2019 All-Sumner County Volleyball Team by Main Street Preps.
By Zach Womble for The Gallatin News
2019 was a banner year for Sumner County on the volleyball court.
Portland High School reached the state volleyball championship for the third year in-a-row, where they eventually fell to Nolensville High School.
Station Camp advanced to the Class AAA Sectional Round for the third year-in-row, before eventually falling to Ravenwood in five sets.
Hendersonville High School qualified for the region tournament for the first time since 1999, and Pope John Paul II enjoyed one of their best seasons in school history.
Headlining our 2019 All Sumner County volleyball team this year is Team of the Year, Portland High School. Coach of the Year honors goes to Station Camp head coach Molly Yarbrough, and Most Valuable Player honors go to Portland senior outside hitter Katie Crutchfield.
Other superlative honors are awarded to Station Camp senior Reagan Bratton, Setter of the Year, and Dylan Mott of Hendersonville for Hitter of the Year.
Station Camp led the way with five total players selected to the teams.
All stats and nominations were provided by the coaches. We did not receive nominations from Westmoreland High School or Merrol Hyde.
Congratulations to all the schools and players listed on the 2019 All-Sumner County volleyball team.
