McKenzie Jonas was named to the Class 5A all-state first team, and Jaycee Villastrigo was chosen for the second team.

The Crook County High School volleyball team has recently learned that two of their players have made the OSAA Class 5A all-state team.

Crook County junior McKenzie Jonas was named to the first team as a middle blocker, while sophomore Jaycee Villastrigo was named to the second team as a libero.

She averaged five kills per set and had a season-high 28 kills in four sets. In addition, she had 24 aces in just 84 service attempts and finished the season with 23 blocks and 49 digs. She had probably her best match of the year in the first round of the state playoffs when she had 15 kills on 18 attempts with no errors.

"It's kind of a big deal because we didn't go to the tournament, and they don't really look so far down on the bracket," Jonas said. "I think that says a lot about our program. How we train our girls from young to old. I wouldn't be where I am without Jenny (McKinnon). Obviously, she is our setter and she does an amazing job. But she also encourages people on the court, she has really encouraged me when I have been at my lows and she not only has set me up for success but she has pushed me to do my best."

"I couldn't have done it without my team and my coaches," Villastrigo said. "The coaches have taught me so much throughout the years that I have been playing for them and I couldn't have asked for a better team to play on. Thanks to the coaches for always being there and always helping me improve and work harder."

Ashli Edmiston of Wilsonville and Hailey Heider of West Albany were named co-players of the year, while Megan Wallace of West Albany was the coach of the year.

Joining Edmiston, Heider and Jonas on the all-state first team were Bridget Gould and Sydney Wilson of North Bend.

Other Intermountain Conference players to make the all-state squad include Jenna Albrecht and Madison Vaughan of Ridgeview, who made the second team and Aspen Bradley of Redmond who received honorable mention recognition.

West Albany won the state championship, while Wilsonville finished second and Ridgeview third.
