GALESBURG—Carl Sandburg College volleyball players Lexa Mahr (Macomb) and Caitlin McVay (Rockridge) have been named to the All-Region IV Division II District A and All-Arrowhead Conference teams for their performances on the court this season.
 

Mahr, a sophomore setter, received the second most points in the All-Region voting. A two-year starter, she led the Chargers with 858 assists (6.7 per set) and was third on the team in kills with 227 (1.77 per set) and digs with 326 (2.55 per set). Mahr also finished second on the team with 36 aces, and her 47 blocks were good for fourth on the squad.
 

McVay, a sophomore and two-year starter at middle hitter, led the Chargers with 438 kills (3.13 per set), 1,190 total attacks and 38 aces. She also was second on the team with 327 digs (2.34 per set) and third with 49 total blocks.
 

The duo helped Sandburg finish the season 21-18 overall, advancing to the quarterfinals of the Region IV tournament. They also led the Chargers to a second-place tie in the Arrowhead Conference with an 8-4 record. Both also earned Academic All-Arrowhead Conference honors during the 2012-2013 season.
 

“Lexa and Caitlin are the type of players coaches dream of having on their team,” Chargers coach Todd Winkler said. “They leave everything they have on the court, and they’re great workers in the classroom, too. From the moment they started here, they had a great connection with each other, and they really carried our team for most of the season.”
