LadyBulldog volleyballers receive state honors

By Sandy Jennings BCC Contributor

The Texas Girls Coaches Association has released the 2014 Academic All-State honors and senior LadyBulldogs Kate Martin and Mary Hevenor were both chosen for the Academic All-State Volleyball Team.
In order to qualify for academic all-state honors, the nominee must be a senior and have maintained a grade-point average 9th-11th grade of a 94.1.
Senior defensive specialist Kate Martin, daughter of Kyle and Pam Martin of Bandera, reigns in the top of her class academically, while juggling five varsity sports and multiple extracurricular activities. Martin is a returning letterman in volleyball, cross country, powerlifting, soccer and track. Martin is a State Champion in cross country this year and received state recognition for this sport, as well.
When she's not participating in her multiple sports, Martin splits her time between her leadership roles in the National Honor Society, Student Council, FFA, 4-H and Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
Senior defensive specialist Mary Hevenor, daughter of Russell and Ann Hevenor of Bandera, is a returning letterman in volleyball and stands in the top of her class academically. Hevenor, also known as a champion in the 4-H arena, spends her time off the court raising animals for county and state livestock shows, and leads the Bulldog community in the National Honor Society, Student Council and the International Club.
Hevenor also enjoys her time spent in community service and as an acolyte at St. Christopher's Episcopal Church.
"I am very proud of these two young ladies," Head Volleyball Coach Dee Heiner said. "I congratulate them on representing Bulldog Nation at the state level!"
