Girls Volleyball Player of the Week: Emily Brochey

Today we kick off our West Herr Girls Volleyball Player of the Week series where we’ll recognize an athlete who exemplifies great character on and off the court.

This week’s selection was a consensus pick within our staff: Niagara Wheatfield’s Emily Brochey.

There are two qualities that go into every great athlete.. accepting your role on the team and, more importantly, giving everything you have to fulfill that role.

Initially a DS on the Varsity team as a freshman, Emily switched roles her sophomore season and became one of the team’s two 6-2 setters.

The Lady Falcons would go on to win the Section VI Class A Title and advance all the way to the State Finals match last year.

This year, with the core of last year’s team having graduated, the keys to the offense have been given to Brochey, who now leads the team as a junior co-captain and the lone setter in a 5-1.

The team currently sits atop the Niagara Frontier League with an 8-0 record, including a 5-set win over #2 Grand Island.

“Emily is the backbone of the offense, spreads the ball around well and averages about eight assists per set. She is a great leader on our team and is always finding ways to push her teammates,” praised Niagara Wheatfield Head Coach Brandi Cochran. “Her passion for the game makes it a pleasure to coach her. I’m looking forward to what the season will bring with her as one of our experienced players.”

On behalf of the entire team at WNY Athletics we’d like to congratulate Emily on being selected as our West Herr Girls Volleyball Player of the Week!
