St. Mary's junior outside hitter Danielle Shubat and sophomore middle hitter Kylee Adderson were recently named to the Southern Cascade League first team.

Shubat and Adderson were the only returning starters on a young Crusaders' team that improved their league record to 8-4 this season and 16-15 overall. St. Mary's was 4-8 in the SCL and 5-18 overall in 2007.

Shubat, the only junior on the team, served as one of the captains.

"She brought a lot of leadership," St. Mary's coach James Joy said. "She did a good job defensively this year. She really improved that part of her game."

Adderson led the Crusaders in blocks, including a season-high 13 against Lakeview in the league finale. The versatile 5-foot-11 Adderson also played some in the back row, filling in for injured setter Jordan Jackson for three league games.

"She (Adderson) really stepped up to the plate and did a good job filling in," Joy said.

Sophomore outside hitter Kate Traister was named second team, Jackson, a sophomore setter, and sophomore right side Domonique Valdez were named to the third team.

Each St. Mary's starter returns next season.
