In just 91 sets played this season, Weston-McEwen senior hitter Molly von Borstel racked up 437 kills with a .345 hitting percentage that easily made her the Blue Mountain Conference’s most dangerous attacker.

When the BMC?volleyball all-stars were released this week, she was officially named the most valuable as well.

Von Borstel was named the BMC Player of the Year for her efforts in guiding the TigerScots to a 16-0 league record and district title. She was also second in the team in digs (263)?and third in aces (59).

On the beginning end of most of Von Borstel’s kills was senior setter Taryn Coffman, who joined her teammate as a first team selection. Coffman finished the regular season with 754 assists.

District runnerup Union also landed two on the first team while Heppner, Grant Union and Enterprise received one nod each from the league’s coaches.

Junior setter Kelly Wilson represented the fourth-place Mustangs on the first team. Also returning with at least a year of eligibility from the first team will be Union juniors Viki McCabe and Keesha Sarman, and Enterprise sophomore Andrea Butterfield. Grant Union senior Jaylee Lippert rounded out the list.

Weston-McEwen and Heppner each led the second team with two selections.
