GODFREY - Lewis and Clark Community College volleyball players Ashleigh Holtgrave, of Trenton, and Hannah Baker, of Granite City, recently earned Mid-West Athletic All-Conference (MWAC) honors for the second year.  Both players are two-year captains for the Trailblazers.

Holtgrave, a sophomore setter, earned MWAC First Team All-Conference and finished conference play with 127 assists and 56 digs. 

Baker, a sophomore outside hitter, earned MWAC Second Team All-Conference and finished conference play with 54 kills and 67 digs. 

Jim Hunstein, head volleyball coach, said both players are very deserving of the honors.

"Ashleigh has such a strong presence on the floor," Hunstein said. "She's a great player."

"Hannah is one of the hardest workers on the team and sets a positive example for everyone. She rarely comes off court and is one of the best play-makers I've ever coached."

Lewis and Clark's volleyball team finished fourth in the MWAC this season with a record of 2-4. 

The last volleyball home game is at 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 4 against MacMurray College JV in the George C. Terry River Bend Arena. The event is free and open to the public.
