Two Houston High School volleyball players were honored for standout seasons with selects to the all-SCA team.

Junior Melody Buse was one of 10 players from the South Central Association named to the first team. HHS senior Brooke McCown was selected to the second team.

Buse, who was earlier named to the all-district first team, led the conference with 349 digs this season. She had a 2.35 passer rating – also the best in the SCA – and 14 aces for the Lady Tigers.

“She worked really hard in the offseason last year and it showed this season,” Houston coach Loran Richardson said. “She stepped up and did a great job as libero this year.”

McCown had a team-best 100 kills for Houston. She was named the team’s most valuable player. 

Brooke is the type of player that brings energy to the floor,” Richardson said. “She played with heart and enthusiasm almost every game.”

Liberty’s Makayla Irving was named the SCA player of the year. Shari Tune of Liberty was the coach of the year.
