Early last week seven members of the conference champion Hillsboro volleyball team were named to the Scenic Bluffs Conference all-conference volleyball team.

Hillsboro senior Sami Levy and junior Mackenzie Sullivan were named to the 12-player All-Scenic Bluffs first team.

Seniors Kelsey Skala and Macy Mislivecek, and sophomores Tasha Mitchell and Brittany Borchardt received honorable mention.

Junior Riley Fisher was named to the eight-player All-Sportsmanship team.

Levy was the Tigers’ top offensive threat throughout the season at her starting middle hitter position. In 36 matches she posted 268 kills and led the team in high hitting percentage (.325), total blocks (81) and  service aces (67). She also made 158 digs.

Levy earned first-team honors a year ago as well.

Sullivan, an outsider hitter/setter, was perhaps Hillsboro’s most versatile player this fall. She led the team with 80 aces, finished second in assists (384), hitting percentage (.315), and digs (195), and third with 226 kills.

Sullivan received honorable mention All-SBC honors a year ago as a freshman.

Skala, who split time at setter, ended the season with a team-high 449 assists, 188 digs, 137 kills and 54 aces to earn her second straight honorable mention All-SBC award.

Mislivecek started at outside hitter and played lot of back row. She totaled 98 kills, nine blocks, 243 digs and 37 aces.

Mitchell led the team with 279 kills and finished second with 59 blocks despite missing two matches with a sprained ankle. She compiled a .309 hitting percentage, 94 digs and 44 aces. She earned honorable mention recognition for a second straight season.

Borchardt was the team’s starting libero and posted a team-high 434 digs. She made 467 service receives and also had 27 aces and 19 kills.

Fisher played outside hitter and finished the year with 25 kills, 41 digs and five blocks.

Hillsboro finished the season 25–10–1 overall under third-year head coach Mark Sullivan and won a fourth straight SBC title with a 13–1 conference record.
