School: Grace Brethren
Comment: The Lancers clinched the program's first league title since 2004, and Barnes was a key reason why. On Tuesday, she had eight kills, two aces and five digs in a 25-16, 25-19, 25-12 sweep of La Reina. On Thursday, she finished with 11 kills, four aces and 10 digs as Grace Brethren swept Laguna Blanca 25-14, 25,13, 25-18 to secure the Tri-Valley League title. For good measure, Barnes had nine kills and 17 digs last Monday in a 25-17, 25-19, 25-23 sweep of Faith Baptist in a nonleague match. The Lancers finished 7-1 in league and 17-3 overall and will be the top-ranked team for the Division 6 playoffs.
