Washington High School seniors Ava Mizell and Sarah Hedrick were named to the All-Eastern Plains Conference volleyball team after leading the Pack to their first win and playoff berth in four seasons.

Mitzel led the team in assists with 591 points in serves (181) and hits (178), while also ranking second in the conference in assists, fourth in blocks and sixth in digs and aces.

“Ava is a true leader on and off the court,” coach Kim Rogers said. “She was our captain and the liaison between me and the team when they were on the floor. As our setter, she was great at directing and executing our plays. Her organization and attention to detail was invaluable.”

Hedrick transferred to WHS this fall after her family moved from Ft. Myers, Florida.

She led the team with 326 kills from her forward position, had a team-best 76 blocks and finished second behind Mickel with 131 digs.

Among conference players, Hedrick was second in kills and blocks and seventh in digs.

“Sarah came in and did a great job for us,” Rogers said. “Not only did she lead in kills and blocks, she was a reliable and consistent passer.”

The Pam Pack finished 14-10 overall and 9-4 in league play, good for third place. They beat East Bladen in the first round of the 2A playoffs before losing to conference rival Farmville Central in the second round. Sarah and Ava have been real assets to the team and I will really miss them next year,” Rogers said. “In my first year coaching the Pam Pack, I couldn’t have asked for a better group of seniors. I am so proud of all of them and their accomplishments.”
