In honor of the Frankfort Elberta Area Schools homecoming this weekend, varsity volleyball coach Becky Miller is pleased to announce this year’s Volleyball Queen, senior Mackenna Kelly.
“This is a very humbling experience for me,” Kelly said after receiving a candy Ring Pop prize for her coronation.
The award was given after all varsity athletes competed in team and individual drills in passing, serving, showing up on time (ready by 5:30 a.m.), and of course, racing to shag stray volleyballs.
“This is the first year we crowned a Volleyball Queen for spirit week, and Mackenna shows spirit on and off the court,” Miller said.
First runner-up was Cecilia Schmitt, a junior. Second runner-up was freshman Riley Thorr.
The Lady Panthers take on the Benzie Central Huskies next Tuesday at the Frankfort gymnasium at 5:30 p.m. (Junior Varsity start).
