KINGSFORD — Led by senior Chloe Hale, three Marquette Senior High School volleyball players earned Great Northern Conference all-league honors.

Marie and Escanaba.

Here are the balance of the GNC honorees:

First Team — Paige Wendt and Dacota Lambert, Escanaba; Katja Wilhelms and Kelsie Sibbald, Sault Ste. Marie; and Abygail Pickett, Kingsford

Second Team — Kaleia Lawrence and Taleise Lawrence, Escanaba; Val Gage and Krsiten Laprade, Sault Ste. Marie; Samantha Maycunich and Jordyn Kreigl, Kingsford; and Brianne Burnette and Emma Hofer, Menominee
