Most Valuable Player
Brielle Hefner, Madera, Jr. MB-Setter
Hefner was an integral piece of the County/Metro Athletic Conference champions, leading the Coyotes to a 9-1 mark. She was a middle blocker to be feared, leading the team in blocks. When she moved to the back row, she set the offense and helped lead the vaunted Coyote offense with four different options. Her importance was evident throughout the league. She was named the CMAC’s Most Valuable Player. Hefner led the Coyotes team with 228 kills and 128 blocks while adding 124 digs, 31 aces and 185 assists. Hefner is a two-time winner of the All-Madera Tribune girls volleyball Most Valuable Player award, sharing the honors with Madera South’s Justine Williams last year.
Rest of the team
Makinna Malady, Madera, Sr. OH
Malady was one of the players the Coyotes could look for in the clutch. When the game was on the line, Malady was a player that wanted the ball and put it down. She was second on the team with 186 kills to go with 162 digs. She was also a first team All-CMAC selection. Malady is a two-time member of the All-Madera Tribune girls volleyball team.
Erin Drew, Madera, Jr. Opp
Drew stepped up to the front line when Hefner stepped to the back to set the offense. She was fourth on the team in kills with 148 and second on the team in digs with 218. Drew was named first team All-CMAC. This is Drew’s second All-Madera Tribune nod.
Mariah Davis, Madera, Sr. Libero
Davis’ quickness led the defense. She had the determination to not let a ball drop to the court. She led the team with 321 digs and was a second team All-CMAC selection. A softball Div. I recruit to Bethune-Cookman University, head coach Robyn Royston said Davis could have been a Div. I volleyball recruit. Davis also was the All-Madera Tribune softball Most Valuable Player for the past two years and also made the girls volleyball All-Madera Tribune team last season...
