CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Wahama senior Emma Gibbs was the lone Mason County player chosen to the 2020 West Virginia Sports Writers Association Class A volleyball teams, as voted on by both coaches and members of the media within the Mountain State.
Gibbs — a 4-year starter as primarily a front row attacker — secured her third all-state selection by ending up on the second team. Gibbs was previously a special honorable mention choice each of the last two years.
The Lady Falcons posted the program’s best-ever finish to a season with an 18-8 overall mark.
Emma Wyer of Wirt County was named the first team captain, while Regan Smith of Tyler Consolidated was the second team captain.
