Seven Lady Huskies make all-conference team


Nathan Ham | Jefferson Post – Senior sweeper Olivia Brettschneider was one of seven Ashe County players to receive all-conference recognition from the MVAC.

WEST JEFFERSON — Following another Mountain Valley Athletic Conference Championship, it’s no surprise that the Lady Huskies led all MVAC schools with seven all-conference performers.

Head coach Wes Rousseau was not left out of the mix either as he was named MVAC Coach of the Year.

West Wilkes standout Cassie Burdiss took home MVAC Player of the Year honors.

Three Ashe County seniors, Olivia Brettschneider, Tyler Eller and Taylor May were voted to the all-conference team while underclassmen teammates Bekah Bowers, Valerie Keys, Mahala Land and Melissa Ramos joined them on the squad.

Ashe also had a pair of honorable mention selections. Alexis Parks and Alyssa Peterson represented the Lady Huskies.
