Tori Sandborn - SPS Volleyball
Coach Nicole Easlick said, “She is a Junior on the St. Patrick Varsity Volleyball team. She plays as libero for us and had a great season. Tori is a great defensive player. She was the top passer on our team and also dug the ball well. She led the team in digs this season and also broke 2 school records. Tori has the record for most digs in a season with 671 and the dig average with 5.686 per set. She is always on the floor and gives total effort. Many of Tori's stats came from the postseason. She did so well and is a big part of why we were district and regional champs.”
