Elma senior outside hitter Quin Mikel was named the 1A Evergreen League’s Most Valuable Player for the 2019 season, the league announced earlier this week.

Mikel, an energetic outside hitter and vocal leader of the Eagles, was impressive on offense, defense and in a leadership role for the Eagles this season. The senior was second on the team in kills with 160 and led Elma in digs with 148 to lead the Eagles to their third straight league title and extend Elma’s league winning-streak to 24 games.

Elma head coach Kendra Dunn was named the league’s Coach of the Year and Grays Harbor student-athletes McKynnlie Dalan and Emma Kahler of Montesano; Kali Rambo, Ella Moore and Jalyn Sackrider of Elma; and Hoquiam’s Hailey Lawrence were all named to the league’s First Team.
