FEMALE ATHLETE OF THE WEEK HONORS GO TO SR. KYLER BAKE OF THE LADY EAGLES VOLLEYBALL TEAM AND EVEN THOUGH HER STATS WERE MORE IMPRESSIVE IN THE OPENING WEEKEND OF THE SEASON, MAKE NO DOUBT SHE WAS KEY IN FAIRFIELD’S SLUGFEST VICTORY OVER ONE OF THE BEST CLASS C VOLLEYBALL PROGRAMS IN THE STATE………THE BELT HUSKIES.

IN THAT MATCH, KYLER HAD JUST 2 KILLS BUT 3 BLOCKS AND 8 BIG ASSISTS. MOTHER AND COACH COURTNEY BAKE SAYS AFTER PLAYING FRONT ROW ONLY HER ENTIRE CAREER, KYLER IS NOW ADJUSTING TO SETTING FROM THE BACK ROW AS WELL. THE COACH SAYS SHE HAS GREAT COURT SENSE AND IS A GREAT LEADER.
