North Branch senior Cianna Selbitschka was given the keys to this year's Vikings' cruise ship, which she helped pilot to the Class 2A state championship match. Selbitschka finished the regular season with 223 kills, 28 service aces and 210 digs en route to being named a finalist for Ms. Baden Volleyball.
Selbitschka was also chosen first team all-state in Class 2A by the state volleyball coaches' association, which spotlights some of the best talent in Classes 1A, 2A and 3A. Players are nominated by coaches and voted on by a selection committee.
Stewartville, which won its first Class 2A state title since 2014, boasts two players on the Class 2A first team: senior Kaitylyn Prondzinski and junior Erin Lamb. Additionally, Jaidyn Brower received an honorable mention.
Star Tribune Metro Player of the Year, Kennedi Orr, along with two other Eagan starters — Christine Jurgens and Kaylyn Madison — joined Selbitschka with Class 3A first team honors, and the state's regular season kills leader, Sophia Andersen, a senior from New Prague, made the honorable mention list.
In its climb back to the Class 1A state championship, Minneota relied on junior Abby Hennen and sophomore Natalee Rolbiecki, who were both named to the Class 1A first team while the Vikings' Morgan Hennen made the honorable mention list.
