Lynnville-Sully went three rounds deep into the postseason and won the South Iowa Cedar League Silver Quad tournament this season.

The Hawks also climbed up the ladder in the SICL, and for their efforts, four players were recognized on the all-SICL volleyball team.

Leading the way for L-S was senior Carson Fisk, who earned first-team honors.

Senior Shiloh Cunningham was a second-team selection, while seniors Kaylee Maasdam and Makayla Rozendaal were both honorable mention picks.

Colfax-Mingo also advanced to the Silver Quad this past season. The Tigerhawks had three all-conference selections, led by senior Colbee Cunningham on the second team.
