McCOOK, Neb. — Safe landings were nearly impossible for volleyballs when Peyton Doucet gets in the flight path.

The McCook senior was probably a terror along parade routes if candy ever was tossed.

Tumbling, rolling, diving and sliding have been her daily routine since first hitting the Bison volleyball court.

Doucet’s 14 digs per match nearly doubled any talented Bison temmate — and Southwest Conference coaches clearly noticed her again.

On Wednesday, the senior libero earned all-Southwest Conference second-team honors.

Libero should include Doucet with scuffed knee pads in every search.

Doucet represents the Bison in all-Southwest Conference where powers like Broken Bow and Ogallala rule.

Doucet totaled 421 digs, 421 serve receives. 21 ace serves and 102 points which tied classmate Addison Randel.
