Volleyball players awarded regional, All-American titles

Laramie County Community College volleyball players Carlee Morrison and Avery Nelson were honored with regional awards at the end of their season.

Region IX North Freshman of the Year, Region IX First Team, and Honorable Mention All American Team awards went to Nelson, while Second Team, Region IX First Teamer, and Region IX North Player of the Year was awarded to Morrison.

According to Nelson and Morrison, players must perform at the highest level, display leadership qualities, and exhibit strong character in order to receive these awards. Morrison added that the region comes together and votes on which athletes deserve these honors.

Both players spoke highly of head coach Austin Albers and their team, and said they wouldn’t be where they are now if not for them.

“Hard work pays off, and it definitely reflects the hard work of our coach,” Morrison said.

Morrison said earning these awards also bolsters Laramie County Community College’s reputation. Recognition for the school makes it easier for coaches to recruit new players for the next season.

My name is Jesse Twitchell, and I was born and raised in Cheyenne, Wyoming. I graduated high school in 2012, and shortly after, I started attending classes at Laramie County Community College. I’ve been a Multimedia major for the entire time I have attended this college. I took a break from school in 2014 when I joined the Wyoming Air National Guard, and attended training in Texas, Arkansas and Washington. My position in the Air Force is C-130 Loadmaster. I coordinate airdrops, as well as overseeing the on-loading and off-loading of our cargo aircraft. On my time off from work and school, I write music and play videogames. I do not have a favorite genre of music, however I mostly write acoustic songs on the guitar. I am looking forward to finishing my multimedia degree and moving on to the University of Wyoming to continue my education.
