Lady Spartan Named 3A Volleyball Player of the Year


Abby Morris, an Emery High senior, had an incredible year on the volleyball team, earning her the Deseret News 3A Volleyball Player of the Year. She played an integral part in bringing the Lady Spartans their first championship since 1996 in late October. The team had a great season, going 29-4, ending on a nine-game win streak.

“She finished the season with over 450 kills. Abby is a hardworking player and consistently pushes herself to improve and be her best,” said head coach Ferd Allred. “She is also a very influential team leader both in and outside of practice and conscientiously acknowledges and supports her teammates. Abby plays with her whole heart, and it is obvious that she truly loves the game.”

Morris has been a key varsity player since she was a freshman, and she learned from the heartbreaking 2021-22 season where the Lady Spartans won 93% of their games, but had a tough loss in the state tournament in Union. But now, she is not only a state champion, but she will have her name represented and remembered at Emery High School as the 2023 3A Volleyball Player of the Year for years to come.
