The VHSL decided to forego the naming All State Teams and the VISAA decided against having a post season or state championship, we wanted to honor the top performers from the 2020-21 volleyball seasons. Many athlete perservered through one of the toughest years. The Virginia High School Coaches Association (VHSCA) did honor players for their contributions this season. The Class 3 group has a lot of high level college talent with several player who have high Division 1 level caliber athletes.
