Spanish Springs senior setter Lyndsey Anderson on Wednesday was named Nevada's Gatorade Player of the Year after leading the Cougars to the Division I state title last month.
The 5-foot-9 Anderson, the RGJ's All-North 4A Player of the Year last year, is the first Spanish Springs volleyball player to earn the annual Gatorade award. She recorded 485 assists, 94 kills, 85 digs, 38 blocks and 33 aces this season. A two-time player of the year in the High Desert League, she concluded her prep career as the school record-holder in assists, aces, serving percentage and hitting percentage.
Anderson last month signed a letter of intent to play at Nevada beginning next fall.
"She makes great decisions, she's a team leader and she does a great job of setting the ball," said Bishop Manogue coach Jason Sterrett, who also coaches Anderson during the club season. "She can do just about everything on a volleyball court."
