Jessica Lyon

Marina, Senior


Marcy Crouch gets most of the headlines when Marina wins in volleyball, but Lyon's work is no less important to the Vikings. Case in point: Crouch had a career-high 41 kills in a five-game victory Thursday over then-fourth ranked Huntington Beach, but Marina Coach Jason Bilbruck was raving about Lyon's 81 assists and 15 digs. "Jessica runs down every ball for us," Bilbruck said. "She basically kept us in the last two matches because when our passing gets bad, she gets to every ball." Lyon also had 37 assists and 10 digs in the Vikings' four-game victory Tuesday over Fountain Valley.
