Great season performances by Jamestown High School volleyball standouts Megan Gaffaney and Hannah Schiele were recognized Monday.
Gaffaney and Schiele were both awarded Class A all-state honors. Gaffaney was one of 13 athletes named to the first team, while Schiele was one of six second-team honorees.
Gaffaney, a junior setter, is Jamestown High School's career record holder in assists with over 2,000. Her 978 assists this season is a new school single-season record, and her 47 assists in a match against Fargo Shanley at last week's state tournament stands second in the school's single-match history.
Gaffaney also led the team with 61 ace serves and 42.5 blocks, while also collecting 158 kills and 371 digs.
Schiele, a junior libero, piled up 760 digs this season, which is the second-best season on record for the Blue Jays. Her 51 digs during the regular season in a home sweep of Minot stands third in Jamestown's single-match history.
Schiele also finished the season with 44 assists and 37 aces. Gaffaney and Schiele helped lead the Blue Jays to 26 wins and a seventh-place finish at the Class A state tournament in Fargo.
LaMoure's Anna Holen and Jackie Meiklejohn were each selected to the Class B all-state volleyball team on Monday.
Holen, a junior outside hitter, was selected all-state for a third year in a row. She helped lead the Loboes to a second consecutive state championship with 670 kills, 52 blocks and 487 digs this season.
Holen has 2,191 career kills and 1,905 career digs.
Meiklejohn, a junior setter, finished the year with 1,076 assists and 72 aces. She has posted 3,754 assists and 325 aces in her career.
LaMoure finished the season with an overall record of 36-3. The Loboes topped Minot Our Redeemer's 3-2 in the state championship match last Saturday at the Fargodome.
