Berry, Butler and Clement Earn SAC All-Conference Honors

Released by Panhandle State Sports Information on 11/11/2018

Goodwell, Okla.—After posting an historic season record and achieving a post-season appearance for the first time in program history, three Aggies were named to the Sooner Athletic Conference 2018 All-Conference volleyball teams.

Juniors Kendra Butler and McKenna Clement each earned Second Team spots on the All-Conference roster, for their positions at middle blocker and libero respectively. Setter Cailyn Berry claimed Honorable Mention recognition for her stellar freshman season.

Butler posted the second All-Conference season of her career and finished 2018 as the conference leader in Hitting Percentage, averaging .280 with a total of 250 kills on 589 attacks for the year. She ranked No. 10 in the league for kills with an average of 2.6 per set over 95 sets played. Head Coach Signe Coombs commented with pride of her players' status stating, "Kendra [Butler] was a dominate force for us at the net this year. Her strength, consistent hitting percentage and dynamic tendencies earned her respect around the league."

Another two-time All-Conference honoree, Clement has claimed consecutive Second Team listings in the SAC. She stands third in the conference ranks for Digs per Set and averaged 5.1 digs over 92 sets played. Ranking No. 5 in Digs, Clement totaled 466 on the season. Coombs confirmed, "McKenna [Clement] is a competitor, hard-worker and came to compete to win every night. Those attributes translated to her being recognized as one of the top liberos in our conference."

Of Berry, Coombs continued, "Cailyn [Berry] had tremendous growth this year as a 5-1 setter. She was open minded to the changes and challenges we threw her way. The game really slowed down for her and she was able to run an effective, productive offense while improving defensively as well." Berry offered 728 assists on the season to land tied at No. 4 in the conference standings; she averaged eight assists over 91 sets played.

Congratulations to Panhandle State volleyball and our three All-Conference honorees. A full post-season release will follow. The complete list of SAC All-Conference players can be found online at
