Snohomish senior outside hitter Lanesha Reagan was named to the Under Armour All-America second-team last Thursday by the American Volleyball Coaches Association.

It is the most recent of numerous honors the Panthers’ star has earned this season. Snohomish won the 4A district 1 championship the same day she was named to the All-America team and will compete in this weekends state tournament.

Reagan is one of 100 players players from 33 states and 90 different high schools named to the first, second or honorable mention teams.

Reagan, who is committed to Oregon State University on a volleyball scholarship, is one of two players from Washington State named to one of the teams, the other being Bellarmine Prep’s Courtney Schwan.

In order to be eligible for the award, the athlete must be a senior at her high school, nominated by her coach who must also be a member of the AVCA and have all of her individual statistics for the season entered on the MaxPreps website.

“It’s really cool,” Reagan said of being named to the All-America team. “I didn’t think I would be because usually 5-(foot)-9 outside (hitters) don’t usually get awards and that kind of stuff, so it feels nice.”
