Danae Drish honored by state

Fairfield junior student-athlete Danae Drish just collected another major recognition, being named as one of 13 players on the 4A Southeast all-district volleyball team for 2017.

The junior Drish was a first-team all-SEC selection this fall after being named second-team in 2016.

She was named to the GTNS big school all-area volleyball team, and she was selected as the best defensive player on the Trojans team at the team?s end of season banquet earlier this month.

Drish topped the conference with 503 digs, good for sixth in Class 4A. That averaged out to 6.21 per set which also led the SEC.

Danae is valuable all over the court, making 64 assists for the Trojans and serving with 94.8 percent efficiency, good for third in the league and 24 aces to boot.
