Savannah Seemans, the Saint Mark’s hitter who led her team to a second-place finish in the state this year, was named Delaware’s volleyball player of the year by the Delaware Interscholastic Volleyball Coaches Association on Nov. 14. Seemans, a six-rotation threat for the Spartans, signed this week to play at the University of Delaware.

She was one of five players from Catholic high schools to make the eight-player first team. Of the 16 players combined on the second and third teams, eight are from Catholic high schools. Each of the teams included eight players this season, up from seven in previous years.
