Five local athletes were recognized by the Tennessee Sports Writers Association on Saturday as All-State volleyball players.

From South Greene Jordyn Roderick, Macey Snapp and Addison Compton were named to the Class A All-State Team, and from Greeneville Chloe Marsh and Lauren Bailey were named to the Class AA All-State Team.

Roderick earned her second All-State selection after leading the Lady Rebels’ attack on the way to a fourth-place finish in the state tournament. She amassed an astounding 604 kills in her senior campaign while 43.5 percent of her swings finished on the floor. Showing her ability to do it all Roderick  had 294 digs and 437 serve receptions to go with 61 blocks. At the service line she had a 92.9 serve percentage and 78 aces.

Roderick was named the District 1-A Player of the Year.

Snapp, a libero, was also selected to the TSWA’s Class A All-State Team for a second time after taking over as the veteran presence on the Lady Rebels back line. The captain led South Greene with 611 digs, while adding 457 serve reception. She came up with 31 sneaky kills from the back row with four blocks and 74 assists. She served up 86 aces with a 91.2 serve percentage.

Compton, a sophomore, was a first-time starter for South Greene at her setter spot, and she had big shoes to fill replacing three-time All-State selection Sydney Gentry. While the hitters and Compton had to learn each other early in the season by the time the post season rolled around Compton was showing why she was worthy of All-State notoriety.

She finished the year with 1,244 assists. On 2,994 ball-handling attempts she made just 29 errors, keeping the ball in play 99 percent of the time. She served up 80 aces this season with an 88.7 serve percentage. She had 261 digs, 15 kills and one block.

Marsh earned All-State recognition for the second time after helping Greeneville reach the Class AA State Tournament for the second time in three years.

She led Greeneville’s attack with 318 kills while adding 31 blocks. Just as comfortable on the back line Marsh had 452 digs, and a 1.96 serve-receive rating.

From the service line she had a 94.2 serve percentage. Marsh was also named the District 2-AA Player of the Year.

Bailey earned her third All-State honor, but her first in volleyball. The Greeneville senior has also been named All-State in basketball twice.

Bailey finished the year with 301 kills, 73 blocks, 276 digs and 65 aces. She was the District 2-AA Blocker of the Year.
