Sophs dominate
All-Northside volleyball

Young players step up

The future is bright for Northside Conference volleyball, if this season’s results and the 2003 All-Conference selections are any indication of the good things to come.

As expected, the State 1A tournament runner-up Shoshone Indians (33-3) filled many spots on the Northside first and second teams. Shoshone fell to eight-time state champion Troy in four games when the 1A state meet wrapped up Nov. 1 in Lewiston.

Of the top 12 vote-getters in the Northside making up the first and second teams, seven were sophomores.

Leading the way were first-team sophomores Katie Strunk and Hailey Harris of Shoshone. Other first teamers in order of points: Senior Ayleen Sorensen of Dietrich, freshman Cassie Wood of Richfield, senior Sarah Hubsmith of Shoshone and sophomore Breanna McAlister of Richfield.

"Coaches of the Year" in the Northside were 25th-year Shoshone coach Larry Messick and eighth-year Camas County coach Becky Skinner.

Carey senior Cheyanne Bingham made the second team along with four sophomores and one other senior, Kari Engelstad of Camas County.

The second-team sophomores were Beth McLam of Camas County, Caitlin Dill of Dietrich, Kyli Astle of Shoshone and Kallie Axeson, also of Shoshone.

Three Carey sophomores made All-Northside honorable mention along with two juniors from The Community School of Sun Valley.

Carey’s selections were Jessica Royal, Whitney Peck and Amy Olsen. The Community School picks were Jackie Goddard and Ashley Alfs.

Other honorable mentions went to senior Mariah Burk of Bliss, senior Grayce Backstrom of Camas County, senior Janet Ellis of Richfield and senior Michelle Anderson of Dietrich.

Juniors were Juteik Weber and Lindsey Shaw of Dietrich, and Meghan Sorensen of Shoshone, plus freshman Amber Ward of Richfield.

Several of the Northside seniors took part in the Fourth District Volleyball All-Star Players Showcase Nov. 5 at Twin Falls High School gym.

Cheyanne Bingham of Carey and Alysse Gelet of The Community School were members of the North East team coached by Brent Clark of Jerome.

The North East went 1-2 in the series of round-robin matches. Kari Engelstad of Camas was on the North West team coached by Jolene Toone of Gooding that went 2-1.
