Bearcats’ junior volleyball player Stormee Galka was named to the 2014 American Family Insurance Division V All-State team, earning Honorable Mention recognition.

The All-State team, which represents the best players in each division, was selected by the high school sports staff of azcentral.com. Consultations with coaches as well as statistics and observations of azcentral.com staff members were used to select the recognized players.

Galka, multi-sport athlete at Ray, played three different positions for her mom, and Bearcats’ head coach Rikki Galka, this season.

Stormee totaled 172 kills on the season, an average of 2.8 kills per set. She also had 168 digs, 29 blocks, and served up 21 aces.

The Bearcats reached the quarterfinals of the 2014 Division V State Volleyball Championship, where they were defeated by top-seeded and eventual runner up, Glendale Prep.
