KSEN/K96 Bozeman Trophy Athletes of the week both played big roles in advancing their teams one step further in the postseason. When I asked the coach of our female athlete of the week, what she does especially well on the floor, she answered, "Everything".
North Toole County Head Volleyball coach Kourtney Pace was referring to her senior captain, Katara Ryan, who led the Refiners to a third place finish in the 6C West District Tournament and an advancement to the Northern C Divisional. That, after a fifth place seed heading into the tournament. Ryan plays in every rotation and had especially good overall numbers against two of the best in the district with eleven kills, three blocks and nine digs against Valier and eleven kills and five blocks against the eventual champion Simms Tigers. Coach Pace also told us that Katara is serving at an amazing 97% clip and that she has only missed three or four times all year.
