AHS senior Avah Steggall has achieved the impressive feat of being selected for both the 2022 All-Star Volleyball Game and the 2022 All-Star Basketball Game. The basketball game will take place on May 27th in Gering and the volleyball game will be June 11 in Scottsbluff. 

Alliance High School had two players chosen for each sport. Alongside Avah, AHS senior Amarui Browning will be playing in the All-Star Volleyball game and AHS senior Angie Davis will be playing in the All-Star Basketball game. 

In order to achieve this accomplishment, athletes must be nominated by their coaches and then voted on by a variety of people voting. Steggall explained, “For the volleyball game, I got a letter in the mail saying I made it, and for the basketball game I got a text.” Few athletes from the state are chosen to play in one of these games, let alone both.

Steggall has had a long history of playing both sports. She remarked, “I started playing basketball in the third grade and [I’ve played] volleyball for as long as I can remember. My grandma held camps at the YMCA when I was young.” Her love for these sports cultivated a culture of success in both, and her hard work has truly paid off.

In the volleyball game, Steggall will be playing for the West Team and for basketball, she will play for either the blue or red team but these rosters have not been confirmed yet. Steggall explained that she will most likely be playing on the right side for volleyball and will play the position of a post in the basketball game. Practices for these All-Star teams will be right before the game so in order to prepare up until then, Steggall explained, “I have been going to open gyms for both volleyball and basketball and have been doing workouts for both on my own.”

After high school, Steggall will be continuing her academic and volleyball career at North Platte Community College. She will be playing as a setter at NPCC. The Spud would like to wish Steggall the best of luck in both of the All-Star games and in her future endeavors after high school. Congratulations on this achievement!
