Braelyn Berry

MORLEY — Morley Stanwood’s volleyball team ended its season a few weeks ago but the Mohawks have racked up some impressive postseason honors.

Heading the list is freshman Braelyn Berry who has earned all-regional and third team all-state honors.

“Brae is the only ninth grader in Division 3 to earn all-state,” Morley Stanwood coach Robin Kozuch.

“Although she is only a freshman, her talent is easily seen on the court,” Kozuch said. “She has great awareness and speed defensively and received over half of all serves.”

Berry topped the team in digs and receptions with 409 and 682 respectively, and in aces with 84. She had a team-high hitting percentage with (237 kills).

Senior Mikayla Moore picked up all-region honors. It was her third season as a setter.

She ended with 641 assists, 51 aces, 227 digs and 66 kills.

“She has a great feel for the court and has worked very hard over the years to become one of the strongest setters in the region,” Kozuch said.

Moore and Berry also earned honors from the all-Central State Activities Association Silver Division all-league team. They were joined on the first team, by Mohawk sophomore Brooke Brauher.

Brauher had 253 kills and 277 digs and was second in aces with 63.

“She has worked hard to positively lead the team and has come a long way and is an intense competitor,” Kozuch said.

Berry’s sister, Breanna, a junior, was on the honorable mention list.

“She’s a great defensive player,” Kozuch said. “She switched from playing on the right side to our libero and she did a fantastic job.”

Morley Stanwood won the league with a 9-1 record.
