VOLLEYBALL

Herrick, Wells all-state

Oneonta High’s Brittney Herrick and Krissy Wells earned Class C all-state honors for the fall volleyball season, Yellowjackets coach Lee Ferrara announced Friday.

Division-I bound Herrick, a senior middle hitter who will play for Siena next season, made the Second Team. Classmate Wells made all-state for the first time with a fourth-team selection.

Herrick’s third straight all-state honor — she was a fourth-teamer the past two seasons in Class B — followed a season in which she set all-time program records for kills (585) and blocks (165). Former teammate Kelsey Baker graduated this past June with the previous records of 371 kills and 134 blocks.

Wells, a setter, finished 12 assists shy of the all-time school record of 820 set by Katie Sessions in 2007. Wells played 41 matches over her two varsity seasons — 10 fewer than Sessions played over her three seasons.

The two helped the Yellowjackets to a 14-5 record, their first Section Four championship and an appearance in the fall state tournament this past season

Ferrara said the all-state teams were selected last month. The teams are traditionally picked by a group of coaches during state-championship weekend, which ran Nov. 16-17 at the Glens Falls Civic Center.
