They won the Hermann Tournament and were one of two area teams to claim district titles this season.

And, this week, the Hermann Lady Bearcats are adding the top two Missourian All-Area awards to their haul from this season.

Area coaches and media members selected Hermann senior setter Abby Witthaus as player of the year and Hermann Head Coach Linda Lampkin as the coach of the year.

Witthaus had a huge season for Hermann, recording 799 assists, 53 service aces, 179 digs, 27 kills and 15 blocks.

“She was one of our captains, the vocal leader on the floor, and she was definitely the glue that held the whole thing together,” Lampkin said. “She averaged 9.6 assists per game, which was eighth in the St. Louis metro area. She was able to average that many assists because her hitter selection was very, very good. She had a knack for picking the attacker that could terminate a rally. She ran our offense last year as a junior and that year of varsity experience was very valuable. We will miss Abby a lot next year. She leaves some really big shoes to fill.”

Lampkin led Hermann to Four Rivers Conference and district titles this season. The Lady Bearcats (25-10-1, 7-0) lost to eventual MSHSAA Class 2 state champion Fatima in the sectional round.

“I humbly accept the award on behalf of all those people that make it possible,” Lampkin said. “It is our players, my assistant coaches, coaches at the lower levels, and our competition that makes an honor like that possible. Our players work hard and are always willing to do what we ask them to do. My assistant coaches are extremely valuable to our program, and all those coaches that work with the girls in the off season and at the lower levels do a good job of preparing them for high school volleyball. We are very fortunate to be located in an area where we can have a schedule that is extremely tough and it prepares us for our conference and postseason schedule.”

Other players in the player of the year voting, in order of finish, were Pacific senior outside hitter Kersten McDonough, Borgia junior setter Janie Arand, Union senior middle hitter Rachael Bassett, Owensville freshman middle hitter Hailey Diestelkamp, Borgia freshman rightside hitter Emma Kriete, Borgia senior middle hitter Hanna Glastetter, Washington junior libero Erica Diener, Hermann junior middle hitter Jamie Gleeson and Washington senior outside hitter Rachel Jackson.

Other coaches in the coach of the year balloting, in order, were Pacific’s Janel Brown, Union’s Angie Morris, Borgia’s Brad Bruns, New Haven’s Jaime Hoener and Owensville’s Dwayne Clingman.

As has been the case in recent years, balloting has been done by positions with two middle hitters, four outside/rightside hitters, two setters and two liberos/defensive specialists being selected for each team.

This year, there were enough nominees to create a third team.

There were five outside/rightside hitters on the second team due to a tie in voting for the fourth spot. There are three outside/rightside hitters on the third team due to that tie. The third team has four libero/defensive specialist choices due to voting ties.
