Vinton County’s Cameron Zinn earned her 2,000th career assist and was named District 13 Offensive Player of the Year on Thursday after leading the Vikings to a 21-4 season.

With the number of awards Cameron Zinn continues to pile up in her high school career, she’s going to need a bigger trophy case.

After being awarded District 13 Defensive Player of the Year last season, she was tabbed as Offensive Player of the Year after the Southeast Ohio Volleyball Coaches Association released its all-district teams on Thursday.

Zinn helped lead the Vikings to a 21-4 season, their first time in school history with back-to-back 20 win seasons, alongside a TVC and Division II sectional title.

She finished the season with 732 assists, including her 2,000 career assist, 212 digs, 127 kills, 86 aces and 24 blocks.

While Zinn claimed her award offensively, Kerrigan Ward was named as Co-Defensive Player of the Year with Gallia Academy’s Jenna Harrison.
