Kelly Walsh's Danilynn Schell sets the ball for a teammate during the Trojans' quarterfinal match against Cheyenne Central at the Wyoming State High School Class 4A Volleyball Championships on Nov. 7 at the Casper Events Center.

Kelly Walsh senior Danilynn Schell was named the Wyoming Gatorade Volleyball Player of the Year for the second year in a row Monday.

A four-year starter, the 5-foot-10 Schell did a lot of everything for the Trojans this past season. She finished the season with 528 assists, 255 kills, 190 digs and 91 service aces in leading Kelly Walsh to a 35-1 record and its third consecutive Class 4A state championship.

Schell, a four-time all-conference and all-state selection, has signed to continue her volleyball career at Division I Wisconsin Green Bay.

This is the third year in a row a Kelly Walsh player has won the award, with Schell winning the last two years and Madison Vinich earning Player of the Year honors after the 2017 season.
