Congratulations to volleyball players Myka Cook (Players of the Year), Heather Windes (2nd team) and Mariah Munday (honorable mention) for being named to the Ozark 7 All-Conference team... Mariah, a junior, played through 2 injuries and still finished second in two major categories, despite missing 23 sets. Heather, junior captain, led us in assists, serve receptions, serve percentage and digs. And Myka, a senior, wow, player of the year. Myka is my 5th player of the year in Coach Voyak's 15 years at Southwest to earn the honor. The others: Summer Stephens, Montana Hendrix, Shannon Mitchell (twice!), and Jaime Shrum. "It's always a good day for volleyball."

Myka led the Lady Trojans 247 kills and added 220 digs (3rd on the team) and 22 aces (3rd on team) on 89.1% serving. Myka has been on the varsity for three seasons and has played volleyball since 7th grade. "I couldn't be happier," said Coach Steve Voyak. "Myka did what many players will not do. She made changes in her game and attitude, and it was evident every time she took the court. She really matured as a senior and became one of our leaders."
