Hancock High outside hitter Catie Ladner is the Sun Herald’s Volleyball Player of the Week.

The junior had 24 points and 35 kills as the Lady Hawks swept all five matches to win the Jackson Academy Tournament last weekend.

Hancock defeated St. Joseph Catholic, Presbyterian Christian twice and Southaven before beating Jackson Academy 25-17, 25-21 in the championship match.

The All-State performer also shined in Lady Hawks wins over Gulfport and Harrison Central. She had 25 points and 17 kills in the two Hancock victories.

“Catie is one of our most consistent hitters,” Hancock coach Rick Rechtien said.
