GLEN ROSE — The accolades for two Glen Rose Lady Tigers continue to roll in.
On Thursday, outside hitter Logan Smith and middle blocker Libby Hinton were named to the Texas Girls Coaches Association All-State team for the fourth and third time, respectively.
“We are so proud of these two girls for receiving such top honors and awards while Lady Tigers,” Glen Rose volleyball coach Sandy Langford said. “Their awards just show others in our program that it takes a lot of extra work outside of season to be great and receive the excellence awards they have received.”
In her senior season, Smith, who played her freshman year at Kopperl, led the Lady Tigers in kills (560) and recorded a school record in digs (585). In addition, she tallied a team-high in aces (80) and was second in hitting percentage (.297).
“Logan being a four-time all-stater, two-time state tourney all-tournament and a two-time state appearance in her four years of high school says it all,” said Langford. “Being a six-rotation player it was hard for anyone to get away from her. She was either digging a ball, hitting a hard ball or serving a ball at her opponent.”
In her final year as a Lady Tiger, Hinton led the team in hitting percentage (.392) and blocks (120, a school record) and was second in kills (554).
“Libby is among the best middles in the state,” said Langford. “Her knowledge of the game and ability to hit different shots along with the power she brought this year is the whole package.”
The duo, who also shared District 8-4A MVP honors, signed national letters of intent in mid-November to play volleyball at Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas.
