Iowa player of year

Macy Daufeldt, West Liberty

Named the Iowa Girls Coaches Association co-player of the year, the Drake signee and senior outside hitter powered West Liberty to 39 victories and a Class 3A state runner-up finish earlier this month. She was named to the IGCA's Elite team and player of the year in 3A.

Daufeldt was exceptional at the state tournament, compiling 33 kills in a state quarterfinal win over Mount Vernon, a tournament-record 37 in a semifinal victory over top-ranked Davenport Assumption and 21 in the finale against West Delaware. She was named captain of the 3A all-tournament team.

For the season, the 6-footer hit at a .440 efficiency and led the state regardless of classification with 639 kills (5.97 per set). The River Valley Conference Elite team selection averaged 3.34 digs per set, served at almost a 90% clip and led the team with 42 blocks. She closed her career with a school-record 1,819 kills.
