Six Bulldogs, one Tiger make Area 2 volleyball team

Seven players were honored as all-Area 2-AAAAAA volleyball recipients last weekend, including one who received the league’s highest individual honor.

Majesti Bass of Rockdale, who is committed to University of Georgia, was named the player of the year during last weekend’s area tournament. Bass had five teammates honored as Abby Bradford, Alycia Johnson, Natheree Lackey, Nazzerine Waldon all were named first-ream honorees, while Jahkishma Soto was named to the second team.

Alcovy, which went 0-2 in the area tournament with losses to Norcross in the first round and county rival Newton in the consolation round, put Aleisha Lett on the second team.
