Cedar Park setter Lind- sey Ledyard capped an amazing senior season being named the District 19-5A Most Valuable Play- er while leading the Lady Timberwolves to a dis- trict co-championship and second place finish in the state tournament.
“Lindsey has a tremen- dous court presence and she runs the offense to take advantage of the op- ponent’s defense,” Cedar Park first-year head coach Kori Cooper said.
Ledyard and Cedar Park’s middle blocker Alana Geymer, who was named the outstanding blocker in the district, were both also named to the All-State tournament team after a Cedar Park run which included an impressive semifinal win over Lucas Lovejoy before a four-set loss in the finals to 10-time state champion Amarillo.
Vanessa Vozza, Luci Albertson and Andrea Grimm were also all named first team for Cedar Park.

of the year in libero Katy Northcut.
e’Lan McCall, Dani Cole and Maddie Sheehan were also first team all-district for the Raiders.
