Several local standout players garnered honors from the Georgia Volleyball Coaches Association, while the group also named Lambert's Missey Hall the top Class 7A coach.

The Region 6-7A champion and state runner-up Longhorns were predictably well represented.

Lambert's Claire Jenkins, M.K. Patten, Francesca Popescu and Jordan White received all-state recognition, with Ella Beyer landed an honorable-mention nod. Beyer, Jenkins and White earned selection to the senior all-star matches played Sunday at Providence Christian.

The Longhorns cohort were far from the only Forsyth County players honored.

West Forsyth's Reece Rhoads also picked up all-state honors and all-star selection. Wolverines teammate Lymaris Vazquez also made the all-star team.

Denmark junior Courtney Graham landed on the all-state list. Danes senior Dominae Jordan garnered an all-star bid, but despite being voted region player of the year in a league with Lambert and West Forsyth, she didn't receive all-state status.

Junior Lily Torrence of North Forsyth was named to the 6A all-state team.
