LBCC Volleyball — Roadrunners Honored at NWAC All-Region Awards; Boeder Wins MVP, Frazier Named Coach of the Year
Linn-Benton women’s volleyball was well-represented at the 2023 NWAC all-region awards, with five players being named to all-region teams and head coach Jayme Frazier winning Coach of the Year for the NWAC South. The awards were voted upon by NWAC head coaches.
Linn-Benton’s Grace Boeder was named the NWAC South’s most valuable player after a tremendous season for the Beaks. The sophomore middle/outside hitter has recorded 253 kills so far this year with a .311 hitting percentage, which ranks fifth in the entire NWAC.
Joining Boeder on the awards list were teammates Maddy Hellem and Brooklyn Willard, who both made the NWAC South first team as freshmen outside hitters. Freshman libero Kinsey Brelage was named to the second team while freshman setter Meah Carley was named to the third team. With four first-years making all-region teams, the future looks very bright for Linn-Benton volleyball.
The full list of all-region teams can be found on the NWAC’s website.
This will be Linn-Benton volleyball’s second straight year with an NWAC South MVP. As for head coach Jayme Frazier, this will be her fifth all-time NWAC South Coach of the Year award, as well as her second in a row. She has led the Beaks to a 33-0 season this year, one they hope to cap off with a NWAC Championship title this weekend.
