Just a week after going further than any other volleyball team in LHS history, head coach Joe Whalen’s NFL and Section VI-champion Lions got the good news that seven players were named league all-stars.
Senior libero Eamon Yates and junior hitters Brad Schneider and Jason Donorovich were named to the NFL’s First Team for boys volleyball. Seniors Jack Whalen and Bryce Perry were named to the Second Team and seniors Shawn Moore and Jonah Ribbeck earned Third Team selections.
Rounding out the NFL’s First Team were Grand Island senior Brock Tetreault, Niagara-Wheatfield senior Sam Mattheus, North Tonawanda senior Joe Piotrowski and NT junior Donovan Book.
Lockport senior middle hitter and National Anthem singer Brittany Sanford earned a First Team all-star nod in girls volleyball. The Lady Lions were coached by Kim Lockie.
