Ryndee Weishuhn has been recognized for her volleyball play.
The Victoria College freshman outside hitter earned honorable mention on the all-Region XIV team.
The Columbus High School graduate led the team with 192 kills in playing all 24 matches. She was third in blocks.
“She was the go-to player for our team and really was a leader,” Victoria volleyball coach Josh Moore said. “Playing these big, tough blockers we faced in our region, she was our one standout.”
“She’s great with her off (left) hand,” he said, “and she was able to use that on multiple occasions. She’s one of the few that I’ve ever seen that’s as powerful with her off hand.”
Weishuhn had at least 10 kills in seven matches, with a season high of
19. “I worked on my hitting quite a bit, just trying to get my arm swing faster,” she said.
She persevered through a slight shoulder injury late in the season, even finishing with 10 kills in two of the final four matches. “I always would fight to the end,” she said.
Moore cited her effectiveness as a blocker as well. When she didn’t block balls herself, she was able to slow opponents’ hits by getting touches on them, thus allowing teammates to get to the ball.
Victoria will have some matches during the unofficial spring season, which is when Weishuhn said she will “work on my arm swing being faster.”
Jordan Johnson led West Texas A & M University with 15 rushes for 92 yards during a win over Midwestern State. The Rice Consolidated graduate, who led players from both teams in rushing, had a 2-yard touchdown reception.
