Del Oro High senior Belle Obert has been placed on The American Volleyball Coaches Association girls’ high school All-American watch list for the 2010-11 season. Obert made the All-Sierra Foothill League first team last season as a junior. The 6-foot outside hitter also led the Golden Eagles with 272 kills. She is the first player in Del Oro coach Stu Kageta’s tenure to be named to the prestigious All-American watch list. Obert, who plays on the Del Oro girls’ basketball team and is a high jumper for the track and field team, has verbally committed to play volleyball for Butler University in 2011-12. The Del Oro volleyball team will open the season Aug. 31 at home against Oak Ridge.
