The Santa Fe (Alachua) Raiders were dominant as they won their second consecutive Class 4A state volleyball title. 

Santa Fe defeated every opponent except for two during the regular season and swept every opponent in the district and regional playoffs except for Academy of Holy Names (Tampa), who the Raiders beat in four sets in the 4A state championship match.

Not surprisingly, Santa Fe dominates the inaugural Mainstreet Daily News All Area Volleyball Team for big schools (Class 3A-7A), sponsored by Bosshardt Realty.

The Raiders place four players on the first team, led by senior right side Jalyn Stout. Stout, who signed to play college volleyball at Coastal Carolina and won the Dairy Farmers Miss Volleyball award for the second straight year. 

Stout had a team-high 563 kills and 55 service aces, while placing second on the Raiders squad with 245 digs and second with 368 assists.

“Jalyn is a unicorn,” Santa Fe head coach Eric Marshall said. “You’re not going to see another one like her at Santa Fe. There’s not a single thing in volleyball she can’t do at the highest level. Then you add that she can lead, still be the best, and still push her teammates without thinking she’s the big shot; that’s just rare.”

Joining Stout on the first team is senior setter Anisa Dorlouis. Dorlouis, who signed to play in college at Maryland-Eastern Shore, finished second on the Santa Fe team with 246 kills, third in aces with 47 and her 326 digs ranked here second for the Raiders. She also led Santa Fe with 446 assists. 

“She is one of those kids that just wasn’t sure what her place was because she had played so many different positions for different coaches.” Marshall said. ” Once you show a kid that’s that athletic what they’re able to do, they see they can succeed. That builds confidence.”

The third Santa Fe player selected to the first team squad is senior libero Emily Thomas. Thomas led the Raiders with 471 digs and was second on the Raiders team with 51 service aces. 

“Miya is a superstar,” Marshall said. “She is the kid that, unfortunately, because she’s a defensive kid, doesn’t ever get mentioned. She never gets the recognition she deserves because she’s just a defensive kid, and that’s just people not understanding volleyball.”

The fourth and final Santa Fe player on the first team is junior middle blocker Joselynn Sanjurjo. Sanjurjo bashed 182 kills while leading the Raiders in blocks with 55. 

“Her ceiling is unbelievable,” Marshall said. “If she decides she wants to be the best, she will be the best player we have next year.”

Joining the group of four Santa Fe players are two selections from Gainesville High School, junior outside hitter Meme Davis and junior middle blocker Charlotte Gravlee helped lead the Hurricanes to a 20-8 record and a berth in the 6A playoffs. 

Davis led the Hurricanes with 265 kills and 338 digs while Gravlee led the team with 73 blocks while placing second with 201 kills.

The final member of the first team is Buchholz junior outside hitter Jordan Czaplewski. 

The Bobcats only finished 12-12 and out of the regional playoffs, but Czaplewski still shined, leading Buchholz with 237 kills and placing third on the squad with 160 digs. 

“As the season progressed, Jordan was asked to take on a bigger role and handled the pressure beautifully,” Buchholz coach Joe LaMagno said. “Jordan was a huge key to our success and I can’t wait to see how she does in her upcoming senior year.”

Leading off the second team is another Santa Fe selection — senior outside hitter Camille Johnson. Johnson finished fourth on the Raiders’ team with 152 kills. 

“She had some huge moments down the stretch in our playoffs where she helped our team,” Marshall said. “She is another one of the dispositions that make the team what it is.”

Columbia (Lake City) is represented by two second-teamers, freshman middle blocker Sinei Wood and senior libero Savannah Bailey. 

Wood led the Tigers with 247 kills and 54 blocks, while Bailey had 319 digs for a Columbia team that finished 17-9 but failed to make the regional playoffs.

“Sinei is a dynamic all-around volleyball player,” Columbia coach Trudy Andrews said. “She is a gritty player and a tenacious teammate who plays all in wholeheartedly with a maturity beyond her years.

“Savannah plays with a winners mindset and digs deep to ensure whatever it takes to make herself and her team successful,” Andrews said.

Suwannee (Live Oak) finished with a 7-15 record but are represented by senior outside hitter Zimora Owens. Owens had 225 kills, 136 digs and 101 blocks for the Bulldogs.

The rest of the second team consists of Gainesville senior middle blocker Jasmine Ver Bust (127 kills, 42 blocks) and two Keystone Heights players — senior RS Riley Barry (147 kills, 59 blocks) and senior setter Kori Jennings (586 assists, 90 kills).
