Bald Eagle Area’s Grace Hugar is the Centre Daily Times’ Female Athlete of the Fall Sports Season.
The Lady Eagles’ sophomore volleyball player boasted a rare versatility — as a great hitter and a crisp passer — that made an indelible impact on her team. She helped lead BEA to a district title and a perfect 19-0 record heading into the PIAA tournament.
Hugar was rewarded with a plethora of honors already for her season. She was named the Mountain League MVP and earned a spot on the all-state team. The outside hitter also finished with 54 aces, 363 kills and 265 digs.
She was called “freakishly athletic” by her coach, and she’s already earned a name for herself in Centre County.
