|Ally Bonnet-Eymard |
Franklin junior Ally Bonnet-Eymard built on an impressive sophomore campaign to become one of the top hitters in the league this season, helping Franklin earn a share of the Kelley-Rex division title and make a trip to the Div. 1 Central/West quarterfinal. Bonnet-Eymard led the Panthers with 205 kills this season, but also contributed at the service line (36 aces) and on the defensive side (117 digs) to give Franklin flexibility in rotations and formations. Franklin coach Kelsey Weymouth said, “Allyson is the true definition of a most valuable player. Her skill level as a junior is impeccable and she was a force to be reckoned with all season long. She was a go-to player when we needed it and she did not disappoint. I can’t wait to see what she does her senior year!”

A solid all-around player, Mackintosh also chipped in defensively with 94 digs this season. Franklin coach Kelsey Weymouth said, “I had high hopes for Cailyn going into this season and she exceeded my expectations.
