Kim is the daughter of Ron and Jeanne Thole of Trenton. She will graduate this spring from Mater Dei Catholic High School. For more information about Southeast Missouri and its scholarship opportu- nities, visit I by Daniel L. Chamness Wesclin head volleyball coach Becky Musso did not see everything she want- ed from the Wesclin Warrior volleyball team. But, she saw some definite im- provement through the year. "We did not finish as high as I had hoped in the league," said Musso. "We had some good matches and some good wins. We kept getting better and better through the year. We had some adver- sity, but the team overcame it." In the extre .mely competitive Cahokia Conference, Carrie Rakers and Ally- son Isenhower both were named to the all-conference teams. Rakers, who has already committed to play volleyball at Southwestern Illinois College, pounded down 243 kills and had 77 blocks. Isen- hower, who played everywhere on the floor, had 235 assists, 199 digs, 130 kills, 38 aces and 16 blocks. Isenhower is also looking to a college volleyball team to suit up for in 2015. "I like what we have returning next year, but Carrie and Allyson will be tough to replace," said Musso. "Allyson was not only a strong setter, but contrib- uted in so many ways. At the net, Carrie was a force both offensively and defen- sively. Filling their shoes will be a tough challenge for any player, but we have the talent at the junior varsity and freshmen levels that are willing to step up to that challenge." Isenhower spent the year collecting all-tournament honors, at the East AI- ton-Wood River/Marquette Tournament, Highland Tournament and O'Fallon Tournament. She helped Wesclin win the EAWR/Marquette Tournament as Wesclin defended their tournament ti- tle. The senior duo had plenty of backup in the form of Mary Hagarty, Mayghen Mugele, Aspen Lohman and Amanda Silva. Hagarty was the team-leader in assists with 367. She also had 208 digs, which was second on the team. At the net, Mugele had 101 kills and 60 blocks. She was second on the team in blocks and third in kills. Lohman finished with a team-high 296 digs. Silva pounded down 86 kills. "Hagarty, Mugele, Lohman and Silva are all juniors," said Musso. "We will be looking for even more leadership from those four." by Diana Sussman TocksteinChapman, Alexa's friend, Alexa Davis is Wesclin said "Alexa is so kind and High School's student of funny.
