    With her busy basketball schedule this summer, LaRue County senior middle hitter Ivy Brown couldn’t devote as much time to volleyball as she would have liked.

    That’s why when the volleyball season began this fall, she put basketball on the backburner and focused all her energy into volleyball.

    That focus paid off Friday as she was named to the Kentucky Volleyball Coaches Association Class 2-A All-State first team, 1-of-5 area players to be recognized.

    “They’re legit. They’re everything everyone’s heard about,” said Hawks coach Josh Jaggers. “That’s what successful teams look like – numbers, physicality, just everything. They beat up on us pretty good.”

    The Cardinals built a 40-0 halftime lead.
