LEOPOLD - Perry Central junior Jessica Huber was named to the All-PLAC volleyball team in voting by conference coaches Thursday.

Huber, who made the conversion from setter to middle hitter this season, led the Commodores in kills with 204, the fifth highest total by any Perry Central player in the eight years since the rally-scoring format came into effect.

Her attack average (kills minus bad spikes divided by total spike attempts) was also fifth best for Perry Central in the last eight years.

Playing all around for the Commodores this season, she was second on the team in digs with 170 and second in blocks with 30.

She made good serves 90 percent of the time and served 16 aces.

In six conference matches she made 49 kills, 36 digs and nine blocks.

Huber was the only Perry Central player to make the 12-girl all-conference team. That is the fewest representatives the Commodores have had since 1992, when Traci Deom was the only one to make it.

The young Commodores went through a rebuilding season this year and finished 0-6 in conference play and 5-30 overall.

There were five repeat all-conference selections: Devon Hardman and Amanda Trambaugh of Mitchell, Kendra Nice of West Washington, and Allison Ragsdale and Skylar Stephenson of Springs Valley.

Hardman made the team for the third year in a row.

Mitchell led the all-conference team with three players.

All-PLAC team (listed alphabetically): Samantha Bradbury, Paoli; Haley Elliott, Orleans; Devon Hardman, Mitchell; Jessica Huber, Perry Central; Audrey Love, Orleans; Kendra Nice, West Washington; Kayla Parr, Crawford County; Allison Ragsdale and Skylar Stephenson, Springs Valley; Amanda Toney, Crawford County; Amanda Trambaugh and Shelby Wilson, Mitchell
