The first Impact Player Award for November goes to Butte Valley Lady Bulldog Kady Porterfield. Porterfield and her team recently wrapped up the Evergreen League volleyball championship—the first in Butte Valley history.
The Lady Bulldogs are loaded with talent. One of the most talented is Porterfield, who dominates both at the net and behind the service line. A junior, Porterfield leads her team in kills (203) and aces (76). She’s second in blocks with 30. Porterfield also leads the league in kills, and is third in aces and blocks.
It should also be mentioned that Porterfield is a multi sport athlete. As a sophomore last season, she was one of the best players on the Butte Valley softball team. You can also look for her to have a positive impact on the fortunes of the defending Evergreen League champion Lady Bulldogs basketball team this season.
The Impact Player Award is given on a monthly basis and goes to Siskiyou County high school athletes, male or female, that have had a significant impact on the success of their team. I select the players based on my own observations, often in consultation with the player’s coaches.
A total of four awards may be given each month and are not school specific; they can go to a player at any school that Siskiyou Youth covers. Winners receive Impact T-shirts that were designed by Golden Grotto. The T-shirts and award are cosponsored by SiskiyouYouth.com and NorCal Classic Hits radio, KCWH, 102.3/101.7
