The Tri-County Conference volleyball awards were recently released.

The Gideon volleyball program took home the top awards in the conference.

Gideon's Niki Lowry was selected Tri-County Conference Player of the Year. Lowry averaged 10.3 kills per game.

"Niki, a junior, is very deserving of this award," Gideon coach Kristen Ashabranner said. "She has worked hard this season and is a tremendous athlete. Niki is a strong outside hitter and has worked hard to become the athlete she is today. Niki led our team in kills per game, is very aggressive and gives 110 percent all the time."

Ashabranner was selected Tri-County Conference Coach of the Year. Gideon's varsity volleyball team finished with a record of 26-7, won the Tri-County Conference Tournament, Class 1, District 1 and the Gideon Invitation volleyball tournament.

"It is an honor to be selected Coach of the Year for the Tri-County Conference," Ashabranner said. "First of all I have to thank God for the opportunity to coach these girls. Also, I have to give credit to the girls. They are a wonderful group to coach. They are the absolute best. Both teams had a tremendous season and they made it easy to do what I do."
