CAMP HUMPHREYS, South Korea – Indoors on the hardwood, Abigail Anderson, a freshman setter, earned Most Valuable Player honors as top seed Osan swept its way to the Korea Plate Tournament title, beating Gyeonggi Suwon in three sets for the crown.

“It feels really great,” first-year Cougars coach Audene Harvey said after the Cougars downed the Purple Knights 25-14, 25-13, 25-17 in the final. “The girls worked really hard and it showed today. I’m really proud of them.”

Anderson was joined on the All-Tournament team by teammates Tailan Hickey, a transfer from Seoul American, Naomi Elliott and Kileyana Schniers, who was named the tournament’s Best Hitter.

This, too, was the final tuneup for the Cougars before Far East, which takes place next weekend on the same Humphreys High School courts.
