Local Roundup: Cayuga's Knox, Anderson named to all-state team

After leading her team to its third-straight state tournament appearance, Cayuga senior Shawnta Knox was honored by the Texas Girls’ Coaches Association (TGCA) for a third-straight time.

Knox again landed on the TGCA all-state volleyball team for Class 1A, joining her teammate, junior Danielle Anderson, on the squad.

It’s the first such honor for Anderson, who previously landed on the Texas Sportswriters Association (TXSWA) all-state teams the last two years.
