Haley Hillestad named Register Player of the Year

Posted: Friday, Nov 30th, 2012

Sioux Valley senior Haley Hillestad, an All-State middle hitter, was named the Register Player of the Year after wrapping up a record-breaking volleyball career and leading Sioux Valley to new heights. Hillestad is shown here making a kill during the Cossacks' Sept. 10 game against Castlewood.

Cossack senior Haley Hillestad capped a record-breaking career while leading the Sioux Valley volleyball team to its most successful season in school history.

For that, she has been named the Register Player of the Year.

“It was exciting and a lot of fun for my senior year,” the 6-foot middle hitter said. “And we played strong all season and did our best.

“It was exciting to make records for the younger kids to try to beat. It was a lot of fun.”

Hillestad led the team with 383 kills in 2012 – pushing her career total to a school-record 929 in four varsity seasons – and earned first-team Class A All-State honors in the process.
