Valley Sports Report
THE VALLEY — Waverly senior Chloe Croft capped a brilliant two-year varsity career as the school’s all-time leader in setter assists, and by leading the Lady Wolverines to their second straight Section IV, Class B title appearance to earn the 2019 Valley Sports Report Volleyball “Player of the Year.

Waverly coach Kesha Sinsabaugh is the “Coach of the Year,” and Athens freshman Jenny Ryan is the 2019 “Newcomer of the Year.”

During the course of the regular season, Croft eclipsed Sam Mennig’s assist record of 873, and later became the lone member of the 1,000 assist club at Waverly.

For the season, Croft recorded a team-high 478 assists and 221 service points, as well as 213 digs, 59 service aces, 33 kills, and three blocks.

Sinsabaugh, who led Waverly to its first-ever Section IV title last year, led the Lady Wolverines from the sixth seed to the Class B title game. The final dual-match win of her career came in the Class B quarterfinals against third-seed Lansing — it was the 100th victory of her career.
