“Allison (Tiegs) was a solid consistent player for us,” Burbank coach Sarah Brown said. “She worked really hard all season to get better, and it really paid off. She had a great season.”

“Caitlin (Cottrell) really deserves this award,” Burroughs coach Edwin Real said. “To be voted as one of the best middle blockers in the league after her setback in February not only shows her talent but her hard work and determination to do well. I am very proud of her.”

“I am glad Dani (Gonzalez) has been recognized by the coaches in our league,” Real added. “There’s not much credit given to the passers and defenders but in reality, they are the most important, being the first contact. She really took control of our back court and made a big contribution to another successful season.”

Burbank and Burroughs tied for second in league this year with 11-3 marks. The two teams split their matchups with the rivals winning on the other team’s home court. Burbank advanced to the second round of the CIF playoffs while Burroughs lost in the opening stanza.
