(Nov. 23, 2018) Three Stephen Decatur volleyball players earned Bayside South Conference honors for their performance during the fall season.

Senior captains Adriana Serpe (outside hitter) and Grace Beres (setter) were named to the Bayside South First Team.

“Adriana was our leader on the court. She dominated at the net and was a great addition to our coverage in the back row,” Decatur Coach Sara Patrick said. “Grace kept a positive attitude throughout the entire season and motivated our team. She is an amazing setter and was one of our best defensive players.”

Patrick presented the team MVP award to Beres.

Junior Mae Purnell, an outside hitter, received Bayside South Honorable Mention accolades.

“Mae is one of our smartest and most consistent players,” Patrick said. “She was smart at the net and worked hard to find the holes on the court. In the back row, she was our best defensive player.”

Purnell took home the team’s Coaches Award. The Sportsmanship Award went to senior captain Morgan Hayman.

Decatur finished the season with a 6-10 record. The Lady Seahawks’ playoff run ended in the second round of the 3A East Region tournament Section II.

“I will miss our seniors greatly, but I am looking forward to utilizing the talent we have coming up from JV next year,” Patrick said.
