SCIOTO COUNTY — Three Scioto County individuals were named to the Ohio High School Volleyball Coaches Association all-Ohio teams for their play or coaching efforts during the fall 2020 season.

Wheelersburg senior Kylee Barney was named to the OHSVCA all-Ohio list for the second time in her career.

For her efforts in helping The ‘Burg reach the Division III regional semis, the 6-foot-2 Lady Pirates’ middle hitter was named to the Division III second team after being an Honorable Mention selection a season ago.

During her three seasons of playing varsity volleyball, Barney totaled a school-record 289 career blocks and 811 career kills.

In the 2020 campaign, Barney’s 294 kills and 86 blocks were both team-highs.

The Division IV District 14 Player of the Year, South Webster junior Faith Maloney, earned her first — and likely not the last — nomination to the D-IV all-Ohio list as voted upon by the state’s coaches.

Maloney was one of 16 individuals named to the Division IV Honorable Mention list, but just one of five non-seniors to be named.

In her junior season, in which she helped the Lady Jeeps clinch a share of their first league title since 2011 and tie for the school-best postseason finish, Maloney totaled 96 blocks — a single-season career-high — as well as 327 kills.

For her career, Maloney’s kills total stands at 933 — just 67 shy of the career mark of 1K.

A year after being named the OHSVCA Division III Coach of the Year, Lady Pirates coach Allen Perry was awarded the Coaches Achievement Award — in leading Wheelersburg to a 23-2 record and a share of the Southern Ohio Conference Division II title with South Webster.

Since Perry took over the reigns of Wheelersburg volleyball in the fall of 2017, the Lady Pirates’ program has posted a 99-7 record including postseason play, four straight Division III district championships, and the 2019 Division III regional championship — the first in program history.
