Sandy Creek’s Allie Davenport earns All-American volleyball honors
A local volleyball player is making news, again. Following a tremendous 2012 volleyball season, Sandy Creek’s Allie Davenport has added yet another award to her growing list of accolades. In addition to leading the Fighting Patriots to another state title this year, she was recently named a first team high school All-American by MaxPreps.
This most recent award comes after being named the AAAA Georgia Player of the Year, a 2012 Georgia All-State First Team selection, 2012 All Area First Team, 2012 GVCA All-Star Senior, and 2012 All Area Player of the Year.
Back to back state titles and being named an All-American is the culmination to a tremendous high school career. According to Coach Paul Collins, Davenport has “broken just about every record there is in volleyball at Sandy Creek.” She will graduate in May holding the record for the most career service aces (436), the most career kills (1,459), the most kills in a single season (645), and the highest number of kills in a single match (24). She posted 892 career digs, 216 career assists and 141 career blocks while at Sandy Creek.
“Davenport will graduate with the distinction of being one of the best all-around players in school history,” said Collins.
After graduation, Davenport will take her volleyball skills up I-75 and play for the Coach Travis Filar and the Fighting Mocs at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, a school very familiar to her and to her family. Both parents graduated from UTC, and Allie’s father played football there.
