Frost spikes the ball

Natalie Frost (14) spikes the ball over a couple Oswego defenders during a match in September.

Fulton varsity girls volleyball sophomore Natalie Frost earned some hardware from the New York State Volleyball Coaches Association. Frost was named Second Team All-State, announced on Wednesday. The sophomore was a crucial part of the Red Raiders’ 2021 season, which featured a Section III Class A championship. Fulton finished the campaign with an 18-2 overall record — the only losses coming at the hands of Class AA’s Liverpool in its first match of the season, and then falling in the New York State Public High School Athletic Association regional championship game to Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake on Nov. 12, the eventual state champions. The Red Raiders went on an 18-game win streak during the campaign. Frost finished the season with 216 kills, 192 digs, 52 aces, 22 assists and 13.5 blocks. Other post-season awards included being named to the All-CNY girls volleyball team for large schools — and is one of four finalists for CNY’s Player of the Year — as well as First Team All-League honors in the SCAC Class A Empire Division and was also named Player of the Year for the league and division.
