Two members of the Monett Lady Cubs volleyball team have been tabbed for All-Big 8 Conference honors as a result of voting by league coaches.

Senior Keli Cornell was named to the second team, and senior Brooke Beckwith was selected to receive honorable mention recognition.

For the season, Cornell had 109 kills, 67 solo blocks, 147 digs, 220 service attempts and 10 aces.

"Keli is a great all-around player who is very respected by her teammates and other teams," said Monett Coach Shyrah Boyle.
