The accolades continue to pile up for two of the Lansing area’s premier high school volleyball players.
After being named Miss Michigan Volleyball finalists in late August, Corunna’s Meredith Norris and DeWitt’s Lexi Nordmann were both present on the American Volleyball Coaches Association’s (AVCA) 11th annual Under Armour Girls High School All-America Teams Wednesday.
Norris, who is committed to Michigan State, was a first-team selection, while Nordmann, who is committed to Southern Methodist University, was a second-team selection.
Norris recently surpassed 3,000 career kills, which puts her second all-time in the Michigan High School Athletic Association’s record book. She was chosen as the State Journal’s volleyball player of the year as a junior last season.
The Corunna standout has helped the Cavaliers hover around a top-10 ranking in Class B for most of the season. She currently holds the state record for most kills in a five-game match with 56, a feat she put together in the postseason last year.
Nordmann is seventh all-time with 39 kills in a five-game match, which she, too, did as a junior. As a sophomore, she recorded 239 blocks and is third all-time in the MHSAA record books.
The DeWitt hitter has been the focal point for the Class A No. 3-ranked Panthers, who also spent multiple weeks as the top-ranked team early in the season. She was selected to the State Journal’s Dream Team last season.
