Palmer Ridge senior, Kyra Kisting has been the Bears starting setter since her freshman year.

"I've just felt so blessed to even be a part of this program," Kisting said. "I mean coming in as a freshman, it definitely wasn't something I was expecting."

Kisting has a quiet confidence that has helped lead Palmer Ridge to a perfect regular season record and No. 1 ranking in the state.

"When we are in those intense moments, I think the girls kind of look to Kyra for that sense of calm," PRHS head volleyball coach, Erica Bradley said.

Kisting hit a remarkable milestone this season, recording 3,000 career assists which is top 5 in the state.

"It's just such a good feeling when its not just a success for yourself, but a success that came from not just one person but three."

Kisting won a state title with the Bears as a sophomore and she is confident this group can do it again.
