West Parma volleyball star voted Jackson Region Athlete of the Week
JACKSON – The West Parma volleyball program has been a constant contender for conference, district and regional titles in recent years and appears to be on course for more playoff success in 2021.
The Panthers are currently 12-2-1 overall and 3-1 in the Interstate Eight Conference. One of the main playmakers who help the team run at peak efficiency is junior passer Brynn Rogers.
Rogers recorded 41 assists last week to help the Panthers sweep Battle Creek Pennfield in straight sets in I-8 action. Readers of MLive and the Jackson Citizen Patriot were in awe of her impact on the volleyball court, as they voted her MLive Jackson Fall Sports Athlete of the Week from September 21-28.
Rogers received more than 8,000 votes to win top honors in this week’s fan poll, while Jackson Northwest’s Teja Kapp was second with nearly 4,000 votes and Stockbridge’s Rylee Tolson was third overall with 775 votes.
Kapp, a volleyball star for the Mounties, recorded 18 kills to lead the Mounties’ offense in their 3-2 loss to Harper Creek last week. Tolson, a cross-country star at Stockbridge, took individual honors in the 3-4 division race at the Jackson County Invitational on Saturday with a time of 18:07.5.
