Abeloe selected all-SWC first team

Jaci Abeloe provided North Medford with an effective attacker on the front row during the Southwest Conference volleyball season.

The senior Black Tornado outside hitter was rewarded by being selected to the all-conference first team by a vote of league coaches.

Junior middle blocker Gabbi Parker of conference champion Sheldon was honored as league player of the year and Roseburg's Bruce Myers was picked coach of the year.

Abeloe, a two-year starter, led North with 104 kills during the conference season.

Abeloe was also second on the team in passing on serve receive and had the third highest number of digs (56).

Grants Pass junior setter Monica Jordan also received first-team recognition.

South Medford had two players selected to the second team — senior middle hitter Crystal Hooper and senior libero Natalie Kennedy.

Junior outside hitter Rebekah Holman of Grants Pass was a second-team choice.
