Player of the Year
Jensen Haas, sr., L, Trinity — Off to Division III Salisbury University next fall, Haas capped off a stellar career with the Shamrocks. A year after tallying 570 digs, she reached 590 in 2018, head and shoulders above any local competition. And she added 77 aces. Her coach, John Barrick, called her the "best pure passer I have ever coached in 20 plus seasons." That's pretty high praise. 2017 All-Sentinel First Team.
Coach of the Year
Jackie Orner, Cumberland Valley — A regular on this list, Orner again did a fine job with her Eagles. This year's squad was rather young yet still ran the table to the District 3 Class 4A title, then made the PIAA quarterfinals. She'll lose a few senior pieces this season, but there's a lot to work with in 2019.
Hanna Cordle, sr., OH, Cumberland Valley — A driving force behind the Eagles reclaiming the District 3 Class 4A championship for the first time since 2013, Cordle (12 kills in the championship) finished the regular season with more than 150 kills, 28 aces, eight blocks and 59 digs. A District 3 and MPC Commonwealth First Team pick. 2017 All-Sentinel Honorable Mention.
Natalie Uibel, so., OH, Cedar Cliff — Uibel shouldered a heavy workload despite just her second year in high school, leading the team in kills (164), aces (40), digs (124, tied with Maggie Myers) and serve receive (241). She's going to be a handful the next two years in the Mid-Penn's most unforgiving division. 2017 All-Sentinel Honorable Mention.
Sadie Doss, sr., OH, Mechanicsburg — Doss, who can play middle as well, has been a steady, dominant presence for the Wildcats and helped them end a nine-year playoff drought. Finished with 179 kills this season and added 185 digs, 10.5 blocks and 15 aces. One of the more well-rounded players you'll find and was a POTY candidate. 2017 All-Sentinel First Team.
Katie Sajer, jr., OH, Trinity — If the conference stats were available, it's hard to imagine many hitters had more than Sajer's 217 kills. She was easily at the top of the Sentinel-area list that was submitted, helping the Mid-Penn Capital champs advance to the District 3 Class 2A semis. She also had 41 aces and 12 blocks. 2017 All-Sentinel Honorable Mention.
Evelyn Hosie, jr., MH, Cumberland Valley — Hosie makes her debut on the All-Sentinel team as the lone pure middle hitter on First Team after she pounded more than 80 kills and recorded 30 blocks in the regular season. The Eagles made a run to the PIAA Class 4A quarterfinals with a team filled with underclassman like Hosie.
Alexis Morrow, sr., S, West Perry — Off to Kutztown in 2019, Morrow has been a Mustangs staple for four years. She'll be remembered as one of the most decorated athletes in program history, leaving with the career marks in aces (211), assists (1,441) and digs (449). She had 85, 339 and 84 this season to close her career. 2017 All-Sentinel Honorable Mention.
Kara Lehman, so., S, Cumberland Valley — Sure, Lehman had a lot of weapons (see: Cordle, Hosie, Morgan Runk) to play with, but the sophomore deserves credit for playing beyond her age and continually finding the open attacker. Finished with 415 assists, 34 aces, 14 blocks and 20 digs in the regular season. 2017 All-Sentinel Honorable Mention.
