Three Seminoles won big awards at the Okeechobee High School volleyball awards banquet Dec. 15.
Giselle Micco was named the varsity’s team Brahman Award winner; Alyssa Madrigal won the Brahman award on the JV team. The character-based award is given to the student-athlete who, among other criteria, excels in how they represent their team on and off the court. Tiyanni Anderson was named the JV’s most valuable player.

Both teams had strong seasons last fall.

Varsity, which also included tribal member Nena Youngblood, finished with a 13-9 record. Highlights included being district runner-up and notching a first round regional playoff win on the road against American Heritage-Plantation.

Micco, a senior, led the squad in assists as the main setter.

With three Seminoles on its roster, the JV team produced a remarkable 18-1 record with its only loss coming in the second to last game. Madrigal, a freshman, showed plenty of versatility by playing a variety of positions, including outside hitter. Anderson, a sophomore, played outside hitter and right side. Freshman and tribal member Yani Smith also saw plenty of action on JV and established her presence at the net as a blocker and hitter.
