The Seymour High School volleyball program met one last time Tuesday to celebrate the 2017 season.

The Owls finished 8-25 in varsity play and advanced to the Class 4A Sectional 15 championship match in the postseason.

After defeating Bedford North Lawrence in five sets in the sectional semifinals, the Owls fell to powerhouse Providence. The Pioneers will play in the semistate this weekend.

The Owls placed fifth in the Hoosier Hills Conference, going 2-5 in league play. Floyd Central was the champion, finishing a perfect 7-0.

Owls juniors Emily Corcoran and Jessica Blevins were named co-most valuable players. Blevins also was named to the HHC first team, while Blevins took home HHC honorable mention honors.

Blevins took home the hitting award, and Corcoran was presented the award for digs.

Blevins finished the season with 265 kills in 91 sets. Corcoran topped the team with 439 digs.

The assists plaque went to Sophia Stahl, who totaled 336 on the season.

Abby Schmidt received the serving award, making 94 percent on 314 attempts with 29 aces.

The Laura Culp Mental Attitude Award was given to Schmidt.

A coaches award was given to Noemi Farkas, and Peyton Levine was the most improved.

This season, the Owls didn’t play a senior on the floor. They will return 21 players to next year’s roster.
