Hannah Gest is a big reason why Our Lady Academy is considered a favorite to win the Class I state volleyball championship.

The senior setter is the latest Lady Crescents standout to earn Sun Herald volleyball player of the week honors.

In OLA’s lone game of the week, a 3-0 victory over Sacred Heart (25-2, 25-8, 25-12) on Sept. 28, Gest led the way with 25 points, 15 aces and 20 assists.

Gest made the Sun Herald’s All-South Mississippi volleyball team last year. As a junior, Gest had 1,021 assists, 85 aces, 34 kills and was selected to the Mississippi All-Star volleyball game.
