In volleyball, the three-time state champion Wolverines landed three players on the All-State first team, with Kiersten Knoppel earning the honor as a middle blocker, Krysta Murphy at outside hitter and Katie Mohun at libero. Setter Brittany Thomas received honorable mention recognition.

For the Wolverines, who, like the volleyball team has won three consecutive state titles, Pat Shaffer was voted to the first team at quarterback, Braden Waters was voted to the first team at tight end and Sam Schroeder as a guard.

On defense, Truckee’s Jake Pettit made the first team at defensive end, Stein Retzlaff at defensive tackle, Cole Roberts at linebacker and Trevor Auldridge at cornerback.
