Nevada High School had a banner volleyball season in 2007.

The Lady Tigers won their first district championship in 10 years and were rewarded with four players on the all-district volleyball team.

Nevada's Emma Dreyer, Mariah Mock and Lindsay Rice each made first-team all-district while Emily Moore was selected to the second team.

"I was thrilled we got four on the all-district team," Nevada head coach Trudy Fleeman said. "Last year we only had one on the team and got second in the district. I didn't think that was as fair as it could have been."

"I think the four that got all-district are the most deserving. They played their hearts out at district," Fleeman added.

Dreyer, a senior, led the team with 197 assists and also used several two-hand, no-look sets over the net to help her attain 85 kills, good for third on the team. Dreyer also ranked third on the team in blocks (44) and fourth in digs (99).

Mock, only a sophomore, pounded a team-leading 132 kills, ranked second in blocks (71) and led the Lady Tigers with 29 service aces. Mock was a tremendous offensive force in Nevada's district championship run.

Rice was a mainstay on both sides of the net with 96 kills, second on Nevada, and a team-best 74 blocks. The senior also added 20 service aces.

A junior liberio, Moore recorded a team-leading 219 digs.

Junior Jessica Harper led Nevada with 187 serve receptions and ranked second with 180 digs while senior Kristen Badgley ranked second with 22 service aces, third in digs (152) and serve receptions (138). Senior Lindsey Webb was fourth in service aces (14).

Dreyer was also named second-team All-Southwest Conference.

"It was really exciting," Rice said. "It was a good way to end the season. To come together at the end and win the district championship was pretty exciting."
