Two A5 Athletes Named as Finalist for Player of the Year in their class!
January 14, 2013 - National recognition keeps on rolling in for members of the A5 Family. Congratulations, Maggie and Celeste! Following are their citations from Prepvolleyball.com:
National Sophomore of the Year Finalist
Maggie Rick, 5-9 Setter, Blessed Trinity Catholic (Roswell, Georgia)
Named First Team All-State, Rick set nationally-ranked Blessed Trinity to the Georgia AAA title this past season. A gifted athlete with terrific hands, Rick was one of the top three assist leaders in the state in 2012, hoisting 1,073 helpers. The unflappable sophomore added 156 digs and 48 kills, including a dump on match point that secured the state title for the Titans.
National Freshman of the Year Finalist
Celeste Fitzgerald, 5-7 S, Walton (Marietta, Georgia)
A switch to a 5-1 offense one month into the 2012 season with Fitzgerald running the show exclusively sparked the Raiders’ run to the Georgia AAAAAA title. Fitzgerald, who grew tremendously as a player during the season, finished with a team-leading 887 assists and also set the team standard for aces with 105. The coach’s daughter added 192 digs and 78 kills for a 34-7 team.
Fitzgerald was a key player as Walton won the Georgia 6A title.
