Mercer’s twin, Allyson, was a champion on the Coweta volleyball crew simultaneously. Stiles’ sister, Heather, graduated last year and was an All – State focus.

“It was testing,” Coach Ramos said with a chuckle. “Be that as it may, I wouldn’t need it some other way. At the point when you get sisters contending, they are serious. They need to out-sparkle the other one. And yet, they utilize that to help each other out.”

This was the principal season in Coach Ramos’ head-instructing residency to have two young ladies on the All-State list around the same time.

Mercer played six years for Coweta volleyball and joined varsity as a sophomore. Mentor Ramos said she was an impetus on offense, driving the group on kills in the 2021 season. Her twin, Alyson, additionally had the numbers to be “all-state status,” as indicated by Coach Ramos.

With respect to Stiles, she began the varsity volleyball crew significantly prior – as a green bean. In 2021, she was what Coach Ramos calls, “the group’s cautious chief” and the class 5A protective player of the year.

She’ll be proceeding with her volleyball profession at First Scott Community College, in Fort Scott, Kansas and will keep on rivaling her sister. Heather Stiles at present examinations and plays volleyball at Coffeyville Community College in Coffeyville, Kansas.

“My sister and I are dearest companions so playing each other on the court and being with her constantly—and our serious spirts were simply – we butt heads a ton however we never get really frantic at one another,” Stiles said.

Stiles said getting all-state has consistently been an objective of hers. She said she didn’t have the foggiest idea how she planned to do it, however she planned to arrive. Then, at that point when her sister, Heather, made all-state last year, it turned out to be significantly more evident – she had no way out. It needed to occur.

What’s more, she did.

Allyson Mercer couldn’t play in the 2020 All-State game(s) because of COVID – 19 dropping it, so Kaycee is playing for large sister, too.

She intends to study criminal equity and play volleyball as an afterthought. She will likely play for a very long time at Fort Scott and (ideally) get a grant to play at a college.

“This will be the principal year in some time without the Mercer twins or the Stiles sisters,” Ramos said. Attempting to proceed with that achievement will be somewhat hard, yet our young ladies buckle down. Ideally we will proceed with that achievement and play at a significant level.”

Coweta had a 23-8 record last year. Since 2017, their record has been 117-40.
