Ceres High girls volleyball standouts Jazmyne Arendt and Jada Harris both earned all-league honors for the second year in a row.
Bulldog teammate Abigail Prado was also recognized for her outstanding play this fall.
Arendt, a junior outside hitter, was selected to the Western Athletic Conference First Team along with eight other players in a vote by the league’s head coaches.
She earned first-team, all-WAC South honors sophomore year.
Arendt had 149 digs, 51 kills, 17 aces, 11 assists and five blocks while rarely leaving the court this season.
“She’s a very versatile player,” Ceres High head coach Kelly Heese said. “I can play her anywhere. She’s got a good knowledge of the game. She’s a strong athlete.”
Harris and Prado both earned WAC honorable-mention recognition.
Harris, a junior middle blocker, was named to the WAC South Team as a sophomore.
She totaled 89 kills, 51 blocks, nine digs and four aces this year.
“Jada was a huge asset on the court,” Heese said. “When she was on her game, we were untouchable. Everybody fed off her.”
Prado, a junior outside hitter, tallied 102 digs, 73 kills, two blocks and two assists.
“She did a great job,” Heese said. “She really improved this year. Her serving, passing and hitting became more consistent. She started to read the court a lot better.”
Ceres High compiled a 2-11 record on its way to a last-place finish in the 2021 WAC standings.
The Bulldogs topped the Johansen Vikings and Grace Davis Spartans.
“It takes a good, solid five years to build a program where you want it to be,” said Heese, third-year leader of Ceres High. “I want team players that are motivated. You have to put hard work in to receive rewards.”
