Biddeford sophomore Kendra Cote, seen here going up for a block during Biddeford’s 3-0 win against Thornton Academy on Sept. 11 in Saco, was one of the most dangerous and dominant forces in the state this year on both offense and defense. In just her second season of organized volleyball, Cote compiled 177 kills with a kill percentage of 55.3 percent and a hitting percentage of .369 while also accumulating 41 blocks as her two-way play helped the Tigers to a 9-5 regular-season record before a loss to the eventual state runner-ups Falmouth in the Class A quarterfinals.
