One more honor for McPherson High’s “M and M Girls” and it was a big one.

On Saturday, McPherson High’s Megan Pedersen and Magan Alexander were named to the Class 4A Division I All-State volleyball first team, which came on the heels of them being selected to the All-Tourney Team at the 4A D-I state event recently at Salina’s Bicentennial Center.

Earlier in the week, Pedersen signed a letter of intent with Washburn University and Alexander penned with Fort Hays State.

As expected, Miege’s spiking machine Allie Strong was named 4A D-I Player of the Year and Gwenn Pike of the Stags was Coach of the Year after her team defeated MHS in the championship match.

In the area, Hesston’s Kailey Jo Ince and Cami Richardson were named to the Class 3A second team, Smoky Valley’s Kate Deterding was 4A Division II honorable mention while Moundridge’s Rylie Dick was named to the Class 2A honorable mention team.
