Madison junior Emily Holland has received several state honors recently for her play on the volleyball court.
A 6-foot-4 middle hitter, Holland was named to the Class 3A All-State Second Team by state coaches and was also named to the Junior All-Stars South Team.
The latter honor allows Holland to play in a showcase at Perry Meridian High School on Sunday. Holland will play in a best-of-three match against the state's other top juniors starting at 1 p.m.
In addition to the two honors, Holland has also been accepted to play for the prestigious Club-Kiva Elite team out of Louisville. That squad, one of the top teams in the Midwest, plays matches all across the country throughout the winter.
