ALLISON MARTIN

PEWAMO-WESTPHALIA senior

CMAC champs again: Martin made 81 assists to help the Class C sixth-ranked Pirates repeat as league champions in the CMAC Tournament on Saturday at Potterville. Martin earned all-state honorable mention, all-region, all-conference and all-area in 2011 as a setter. In her third year on varsity, she has helped P-W to a 45-3-3 record.

From coach Lauren Iszler: “She knows our team’s strengths on each rotation and can put the ball in the right player’s hands for the situation. She is mentally tough and can make changes to her technique mid-game to aid the success of the team. Defensively, she is able to make key passes and pick up digs. Allison also has a tough serve (with 51 aces). She is a leader, and as co-captain, picks up her teammates when they are down. Allison can find the humor in any situation and lightens the mood with her unique, contagious laugh. She has big future plans that she will be able to accomplish with her drive and outstanding work ethic.”
