Louisburg volleyball coach Jessica Compliment has had many good things happen during her 12 years on the bench.

She is now able to add another to her long list of accomplishments this weekend.

Compliment was recently named as the head coach of the Blue Team for the Kansas Volleyball Association (KVA) annual all-star match Saturday at Lee Arena on the Washburn University campus in Topeka. Compliment will be joined by Wellsville head coach Eric Evans and Meade head coach Leann Krier.

“It’s a great honor to be selected and recognized by the KVA,” Compliment said. “I’m not quite sure what the whole weekend will entail. I know a coach from each classification was selected to represent their class and I’m honored to be representing 4A and will be coaching alongside two other great coaches. We met up this morning to discuss practices and then we will meet with the players. I’m excited to meet the players as well.”

Compliment has tallied a 311-189 record while at Louisburg and has led the Lady Cats to six state tournament appearances, including a second place finish in 2013 and another runner-up performance this past season.

Players selected are first nominated by their high school coaches (who must be KVA members), and then recommended by committee to fill the squads. Teams are determined and divided into two based on achievements, positions, classifications, collegiate plans and availability, according to a KVA news release.

The blue team is consisted of Danielle Dodge, Washburn Rural; Savannah Yost, Thomas More Prep; Laken Schroeder, Concordia; Jana Owens, Blue Valley West; D’Ovion Williams, Blue Valley North; Kassidy Pflughoeft, Central Plains; Kailey Ince, Hesston; Lacey Angello, Lansing; Mackenzie Pease, Manhattan; Marrisa Bates, Silver Lake; Zoe Schultz, Wheatland/Grinnel and Lindsey Fletcher, Blue Valley West.

Compliment will coach against the red team, led by Matt Allin, Blue Valley North; Lindsay Hothan, De Soto and Janelle Maier, Otis-Bison. The Red Team is comprised of Katie Glatzack, Centralia; Amanda Desch, Topeka-Hayden; Kenzie Smith, Manhattan; Alaina Dunlavy, Hesston; Amber Hildebrand, Wamego; Shianne Cook, Olathe North; Sydney Johnson, Beloit; Kayla Vitztum, Thomas More Prep; Brianna Bradshaw, Kingman; Taylor Antonowich, Newton; Trisha Mathewson, Axtell, and Elle Barrett, McPherson.
