OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss volleyball signee Aubrey Edie has received numerous accolades throughout her high school career, and another was added to Edie’s trophy case Wednesday as she was named the volleyball Gatorade Player of the Year for the state of Arkansas.

The award, which recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the field, distinguishes Edie as Arkansas’ best high school volleyball player. A 6-foot setter from Fayetteville, Ark., Edie has also been named an American Volleyball Coaches Association Under Armour Second Team All-American, and was selected to the USA Junior National A2 team.

“This is a great honor for Aubrey and all the hard work she has put into her career up to this point, and we look forward to her achieving even more once she gets here to Ole Miss,” Rebels head coach Joe Getzin said.

Edie, who attended Fayetteville High School and played club ball for the Ozark Juniors, is a three-time All-State and All-Conference selection, and led Fayetteville High School to the Class 7A state championship as a senior, earning State Tournament MVP honors along the way. Edie recorded 1,102 assists, 233 digs, 176 kills, 90 blocks and 54 service aces while posting a kill percentage of .431. Playing for the Ozark Juniors, Edie was a finalist for PrepVolleyball.com’s National Sophomore of the Year and National Junior of the Year.

Edie holds the school assists record and was named the NWA Big 6 Newcomer of the Year and the NWA Big 6 Player of the Year. She’s also a two-year starter on the varsity basketball team, winning a state championship as a sophomore, and a three-year starter on the varsity softball team. Through all of her athletic work, Edie has maintained a 3.97 GPA in the classroom.

The Gatorade Player of the Year program annually recognizes one winner in Washington, D.C., and each of the 50 states that sanction high school football, girls volleyball, boys and girls cross country, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, baseball, softball, and boys and girls track & field, and awards one National Player of the Year in each sport. The selection process is administered by the Gatorade high school sports leadership team in partnership with USA TODAY High School Sports, which works with top sport-specific experts and a media advisory board of accomplished, veteran prep sports journalists to determine the state winners in each sport.
