(November 29, 2016) — The Texas High School Coaches Association released its academic all-state volleyball team that includes five players from Stephenville and Dublin.
All four SHS seniors made academic all-state, including 8-4A middle blocker of the year and team MVP and fighting heart award winner Nicona Stilwell, first-team all-district picks Taylor Garber and Emily Brandon and honorable-mention all-district selection Kylee Ponder.
Dublin senior Whitney Weems, the 6-3A MVP, also earned a spot on the academic all-state team, which considers nominations from all THSCA member coaches statewide.
The THSCA honor is based on grade point average, class rank and ACT/SAT scores.
