Senior libero Alison Krieger was named the Most Valuable Player when the Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg volleyball team awards were handed out recently.

The MVP honor capped an outstanding year for Krieger, one that saw her set Saints’ school records for digs in a season (460) and in a career (1,167).

Krieger was also given the team’s Hustle Award and was named Best Defensive Player.  She was selected for the Camden All-Conference team, along with fellow senior Kalli Forsell.

Forsell was named the Best Offensive Player after leading K-M-S with 238 kills.
