The girls volleyball program has a long legacy of at least one girl being honored with the All-State award every year. This year the legacy is continued through senior Laura Savin. Savin has played for Susquehannock’s volleyball program since seventh grade and also plays club volleyball outside of school. Senior Abby Ferraro, Savin’s teammate, is very proud of her friend.
“I think the whole team is really proud of her because we have always had a really great volleyball program, and she just kept that legacy going…it’s really exciting that she was able to be recognized at the state level,” said Ferraro.
Savin is also very proud of her accomplishments and how she attained them.
“I am really honored to be recognized as an All-State player and am happy that all the hard work and dedication I put into this program has paid off,” said Savin.
Savin is the first player to make All-State since Rob Marrison retired as Varsity head coach and was replaced by Darla Pennewill.
“ When a team does well in-season and postseason play, players have a better chance of being recognized. Laura led the team in kills and was a very positive contributor both offensively and defensively during the season as well as in postseason play. Most opponents knew that if they had a chance to beat the Warriors, they had to stop Laura. Coaches notice such talent, and, as a result, she was rightfully so recognized with this honor,“ said Pennewill.
Savin is one in a long line of girl volleyball players in Susquehannock’s program that has achieved this award due to her pushing herself, the support of her teammates and her determination.
