A local volleyball player is making news, again. Following a tremendous 2012 volleyball season, Sandy Creek’s Allie Davenport has added yet another award to her growing list of accolades. In addition to leading the Fighting Patriots to another state title this year, she was recently named a first team high school All-American by MaxPreps.
In its 28th year of honoring the nation’s best high school athletes, The Gatorade Company, in collaboration with USA TODAY High School Sports, recently announced Teegan Van Gunst of Whitewater High School as its 2012-13 Gatorade Georgia Volleyball Player of the Year.
A number of local volleyball players were named to the All State teams and two players were named player of the year for their classifications.
There are six classifications in the Georgia High School Association this year. If we count Landmark Christian School as part of Fayette County (which we do because the school is located close to the Fayette border and has numerous students from the county), there were four teams playing in state championships in three different classifications either Saturday or Monday.

Sandy Creek Class of 2013
The Lady Patriots’ Volleyball team are state champs for the second year in a row.
Four of the five local volleyball teams that made the state semifinals in their respective classifications will play for state championships. Sandy Creek and Landmark go for their titles on Saturday and McIntosh and Whitewater will tangle on Monday.
The state volleyball semifinals take place Halloween night and five local teams are hoping for a treat. A win on Wednesday will send them to the finals in their respective classifications.
The volleyball dominance from area teams continues in the state playoffs.
The local volleyball teams started the state playoffs this week and advanced to the second round.
You probably knew that the high school volleyball teams in the area were good, but did you know that they were this good? The area tournaments took place last week and three local teams were crowned area champions.
