The 2019 Soph 79: Elite Honorable Mention and High Honorable Mention Honorees ByJohn Tawa Posted on April 1, 2020
*HIGH HONORABLE MENTION*
Alexa Shiner, 5-8 S, Xavier College Prep (Phoenix, Arizona) – Shiner succeeded a four-year starter and HS All-American at setter for the nationally-ranked Gators and did a terrific job. She was named Second Team All-Premier Region after amassing 1,253 assists, 260 digs and 51 aces over 122 sets for XCP. Shiner also was named the squad’s Most Improved Player.
“This was a breakout season for Alexa,” said coach Lamar-Renee Bryant. “As a freshman she was the JV setter, and came in the gym her sophomore season with different focus and commitment to the game. Her strength to take out of system sets and push them all the way out in tempo won her the spot as the starting setter for the varsity team.
Alexa stayed composed and rose to the occasion all season. In late October, she lost her grandmother unexpectedly and I truly believe her teammate’s support and having a second family on the court gave her direction and purpose in the extremely difficult time for her family. Alexa is a great setter and has the tenacity to lead her team.”
