Avon senior Erin Gardner received Lorain County’s highest volleyball honor Nov. 14 when she was named 2017 Miss Volleyball at the Lorain County Coaches Association All-Star Game.
Gardner becomes the third Avon athlete to be named Miss Volleyball since the first award was given out in 1985. Rosie Schneider received the award in 1989 and, most recently, Liz Zollos won in 2014.
“There’s so much talent in Lorain County and I just feel so blessed and happy that I could receive this award,” Gardner said.
Gardner was a four-year starter for the Eagles and led the team to a back-to-back Southwestern Conference championship and its third straight district finals appearance.
In 67 regular-season sets, she totaled 299 digs (4.5 per set) and had five games with 20-plus digs, had 76 assists and was over 90 percent in both serving and serve receive.
On top of that, Gardner earned Lorain County Division I Player of the Year, Southwestern Conference Player of the Year and first-team all-district for District 3.
