The Hillsborough County Volleyball Player of the Week

MH Reese Friar, Sr., Plant

At 6-foot-2, Reese Friar has the height to be dominant at the net. 

She also has the stats to prove it. 

Heading into last week’s district tournament, Friar ranked among the top two on her team in kills (215) and blocks (37). She also helped Plant go 20-4 in the regular season. 

Two weeks ago, Friar played a pivotal role in helping the Panthers close the regular season with wins against Steinbrenner, Clearwater Central Catholic and Robinson — all of which either won district titles or made the playoffs with at-large bids. 

Fans were impressed. Friar received 49 percent of the votes (2,229) in the Hillsborough County volleyball player of the week poll to beat out Sickles’ Emilie Vendrone, who had 40 percent (1,811).
