The Alexandria volleyball team saw a relatively inexperienced group at the start of the year finish with a 15-12 season this past fall, and the Cardinals honored many players who helped lead the way.

Senior Mia McGrane was a catalyst for Alexandria, and she earned both the MVP and Offensive Player of the Year Awards. McGrane averaged a team-best 10.3 kills and 11.4 digs per match.

McGrane joined fellow senior Ella Grove and sophomore Tessa McGrane as All-Central Lakes Conference players. Seniors Erika Roderick and Meg Shercliffe were honorable-mention All-CLC selections.

Shercliffe also took home a couple of team-voted awards. She was the Cardinal Award recipient and shared Defensive Player of the Year honors with Tessa McGrane.

Tessa McGrane averaged 11 digs per match, second best on the team, while Shercliffe averaged 7.4 digs to go with a team-high 1.4 serving aces each match.
