Girls volleyball: Brown Deer rewarded for special season

Nov. 1, 2007

At 5-foot-10, Monique Morris doesn't exactly fit in with some of the tall trees you find in girls volleyball. Morris does stand just as tall - it not taller - when it comes to talent.

Morris, a sophomore at Brown Deer, was recently voted the Woodland Conference's most valuable player by the league's coaches. Joining Morris, also named first-team all-Woodland Conference, on the awards list, was junior Sydney Nelson. Nelson was named second-team all-Woodland Conference for Brown Deer, which set a school record with 19 match victories.

Morris, the first girls volleyball conference MVP in school history, had 312 kills for the season for an average of four a game. She also had a .293 attack percentage. She had 364 digs, an average of five a game, and had 51 aces (.914 inbounds serve percentage) and 48 blocks.

"Her love and dedication to volleyball has really helped her achieve such a high level of play," Brown Deer coach Joshua Herrell said. "She can hit the ball as hard as I've seen anyone in the state hit it this year. Her passing, setting have really improved to complement her hitting and blocking in making her a complete all-around player.

"Several teams this year used a triple block against her and she hit right through it or over the top of it. Her pure explosiveness allows her to play like she is a lot taller than her 5-10."
