Offense may seem like the star of the show, but defense is equally as essential if not more important. A lot of coaches consider passing/defense the backbone of the team, so here are five awesome 2nd region back row players that keep the ball rolling (or off the floor). 

Riley Thomas- Have you ever met a player that goes up to the officials after they called the ball out and tells them that they personally touched it, so the other team should get the point in the region championship? If you haven’t, then you’ve never met Riley Thomas. A girl who is known for her character and integrity not just off the court but on as well. Thomas helped Caldwell County defensively with 287 digs and a 3.22 dig average. Classy and honorable, Riley Thomas earned her spot on the all-district and all-region team in 2019 and showed all players what the meaning of a "true leader" is. The Lady Tigers won their district and placed second in the region, so they will be back for redemption in 2020 with Thomas dominating in her final season!
