Blakely Wilkinson, junior outside hitter for Clarksville High School, is this week’s Boom Sports Media Volleyball Player of the Week, sponsored by Sporty’s Awards & Engraving.
Wilkinson had 18 kills, 25 digs, 5 aces in two games last week, both wins. “Blakely is one of the most well rounded players I’ve ever coached. She is exceptional in the passing game and is one of the players that we depend on for a kill. Blakely has started on varsity for two years now and is improving every aspect of her game daily. As a coach you can’t ask for a player that works as hard as Blakely does. She is one of the key reasons we are going into the District tournament as the number one seed,” her coach Glen Fox said.
