Cadillac’s Renee Brines Named Finalist for Miss Volleyball

CADILLAC — Cadillac senior Renee Brines is one of 11 finalists for Michigan’s Miss Volleyball Award.

Brines has helped Cadillac earn at least a share of a conference title every year since she joined the varsity team as a freshman. She also owns the school records for aces in a season and career assists.

She’s the daughter of Cadillac head coach Michelle Brines, and she felt all the emotions when her mother told her the exciting news.

“We were at the Battle Creek-Lakeview tournament and we were done playing – we were done playing for the day,” Renee Brines said. “We were reffing and we were talking, just talking about the day and all that and she actually told me and I was super excited I started crying.”

“As a little girl she would always know who the Miss Volleyball candidates were when we would go to matches and things and so for, you know, she cried when I told her because she was so happy,” Michelle Brines said. “So we’re just really honored and she’s worked really hard.”

Brines earned All-Region as a freshman, Div. 2 All-State Honorable Mention as a sophomore and Div. 2 All-State last season. She is the second Viking to be named a finalist for Miss Volleyball, as Ali Finch was recognized as a finalist in 2016.
