With the Tri-River Conference (TRC) volleyball season now in the rearview, the league awards have been divvied up to the most deserving players. Both Gervais High School and Kennedy High School volleyball players made the list of the best in the TRC.

The Gervais squad, which finished fourth in league with a Tri-River Conference record of 7-5 and a 9-12 overall record, had a quartet of players receive all-league honors. Five-foot, 10-inch sophomore Olivia Boyd was the lone Cougar to make the all-league first team for her work as a middle blocker and outside hitter.
