BEAVERTON – The Beaverton Volleyball team got some good news this week although it didn’t include a schedule for finishing the season. The Michigan Interscholastic Volleyball Coaches Association named Seniors Molly Gerow and Mady Pahl to the Division 3 All State team. “Molly and Mady are very talented athletes that have worked very hard to perfect their volleyball skills,” said Beaverton Coach Steve Evans. “They are two of the best players we have ever had in our program and are a big reason why we have been so successful.”
Gerow was named to the First Team as an outside hitter for the second year in a row. Molly was named to the Third Team during her sophomore year in 2018. She became the Beavers all time kill leader in September of 2019 during her junior year when she surpassed Morgan Oldani Zenz. This year she became the fifth Beaverton player to record 1000 digs in a career. She is the first player to accomplish the fete without having spent at least part of their career as a libero. “Molly is one of the best hitters in the state,” continued Evans. “She can score in any open spot on a defense and her defense is as good as most liberos.”
Pahl, a setter, was named to the Second Team this year after being a Third Team selection in 2019. She broke the Beaverton assist record earlier this season when she passed the record held by Ashton Snyder who played from 2012-2014. “Mady may be the most intelligent volleyball player I have ever coached,” added Evans. “Not only can she make every set, she can score anywhere on the court.”
Both girls are well-rounded athletes. They played basketball last winter and earned First Team All State honors in softball during their sophomore year in 2019. Gerow was selected as an outfielder. Pahl played second base. They missed the opportunity to be three time selections when the softball season was cancelled in 2020.
