On Tuesday, Berkeley Prep senior outside hitter Jordan Burgess and head coach Randy Dagostino were again named the top volleyball player and coach in Florida by the Florida Dairy Farmers.
Burgess, who recently led the Buccaneers to the Class 4A state championship, was named Miss Volleyball 2011 while Dagostino was named Coach of the Year. Burgess and Dagostino were named 4A Player and Coach of the Year to become finalists for the award.
After being named Miss Volleyball last year as a junior, Burgess becomes the first repeat winner in the 20-year history of the award. Dagostino is also a repeat winner, having earned the honor in 2010. He was also named Coach of the Year in 1992.
This season, Burgess posted 533 kills, 366 digs and 48 aces. She will play for Stanford University next fall and ended her career as Berkeley’s all-time leader in kills with 1,792.
Berkeley went 30-2 this season under Dagostino, the state’s most active winningest coach with 829 career wins, and was ranked as high as second in the nation.
