When Venice added its beach team, the two jumped at the opportunity and made the most of it. The Indians' No. 1 pairing went 12-4 and clinched the match-deciding point in the regional play-in to send Venice to states. FINALISTS KENDALL STEINERT AND OCEAN ROTH LEMON BAY There might not be a better beach volleyball tandem than pairing a skilled setter with a strong outside hitter and that's exactly what Lemon Bay had in Steinert and Roth. The Mantas' No. 1 duo took their chemistry from the indoor team and carried it over to the sand courts — going 11-1 as they led Lemon Bay to a 12-3 record. IRIS DEVRIES AND TAYLOR ARDEN VENICE The only No. 5 pairing on this list, Devries and Arden played above their seeding each match — fi nishing 15-1, including a perfect regular season and district tournament before losing to Cardinal Mooney at states. SOFTBALL PLAYER OF THE YEAR MICAELA HARTMAN VENICE, SENIOR After bursting onto the scene as a pitcher in her freshman season, Hartman became too essential in center- fi eld to pitch much in her senior season. The team's No. 3 hitter, Hartman led in several off ensive categories for Venice — hitting .461 across 80 plate appearanc- es with eight doubles, two home runs, 17 RBI, 21 runs and just eight strikeouts. FINALISTS LAYNE PREECE VENICE, SOPHOMORE It's hard to have a better debut season than the one Preece turned in for the Lady Indians. She quickly elevated herself to ace status and fi nished with dominant numbers: a 13-2 record, a 1.12 ERA, 99 strikeouts to 11 walks across 81 innings pitched and was 3-for-3 in save opportunities. She held Lakewood Ranch — the nation's No. 3 team — to one run in a 1-0 loss in the district fi nal. ATHLETES FROM PAGE 10A SEE ATHLETES, 12A C O N G R AT U L AT I O N S T O O U R G R A D UAT E S !
