Senior Chelsea Butler was tabbed the District 16, 5A MVP. Teammate Kristel Cababasay started the season on the back row for Huntsville but took over as the team's libero at the midway point.

While they both received superlatives, both of them were awarded Greater Houston Area Postseason Team honors.

Also added to the accolades were senior Madison Elkins, junior Jayna Brinkley, Cababasay, junior Mylie Theisen, junior Isabel Saumell and sophomore Carli Huff wanted nods on the GHVCA postseason academic team.

"We have local, district, regional and state awards. Our girls have earned post-season awards at every level now," Huntsville head volleyball coach Cody Hassell said. "They are successful because of their hard work on the court and in the classroom. It is an honor to be a part of their journey. I am extremely pleased that people around the state and in this case, in the Houston area, are beginning to see the talent and accomplishments of Huntsville Volleyball players and our program."
