Nearly a month after the final championship games ended, the volleyball playoff coaches in Class 2A compiled the list of their three all-state teams and released it on Tuesday.
Two Umatilla and Morrow County schools were represented on the list, with Weston-McEwen’s senior hitter Alyssa Finifrock earning second team all-state honors and Heppner senior Morgan Correa and teammate Sydney Wilson earned all-state honorable mention. The Mustangs and TigerScots’ league rival, Culver, had two players earn all-state honors as both Margie Beeler and Irma Retano landed on the first team.
The state champion Grant Union Prospectors have four picks, with seniors Mariah Moulton and Whitney McCellan on first team and juniors Kaylee Wright and Hailey Wright on second team. Moulton also earned Player of the Year and Grant Union’s Shae Speth was voted as Coach of the Year.
The full all-state teams are listed below.
