FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Monday, December 7, 2020

TULSA – Bishop Kelley High School’s Audrey Buford is the 2020 Shelter Insurance Miss Volleyball Oklahoma award winner.

Buford is a four-year starter at Kelley and the team’s MVP. This year the team captain recorded incredible numbers; 521 serve attempts, 66 aces, 307 kills, and 617 assists, all to lead the Lady Comets to the 6A state title. She finished the season tied for 2nd in digs with 316 and tied for 3rd in blocks with 37.

In 2020 she was named MVP of the Class 6A state tournament and made numerous All-Tournament teams throughout the season. Buford was also named to the American Volleyball Coaches Association Region 4 All-Region Team and is the only player for Oklahoma representing the state.

Other honors include being named the Tulsa World Volleyball Player of the Week, Max Preps Player of the Week, and Comet of the Week.

Head coach Jerri Berna said of Buford, “Audrey is obviously a decorated player. She is talented, savvy, a masterful shot maker, and a great defensive player. As a four-year starter, her composure as well as her subtly strong competitive spirit were fundamental to us. This season, she calmly and consistently willed us and then led our team to win, making hard plays look easy and scoring on shots only she could hit.”

The Shelter Insurance Miss Volleyball Oklahoma Award recognizes the outstanding athletic achievements of Audrey Buford and the high standards of athletic excellence and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the court, which distinguishes Buford as Oklahoma’s best high school volleyball player this season.

Buford joins former Miss Volleyball award winner Jaxie Wakley – Victory Christian (2019).
