ATWATER -- Opposing coaches were amazed how well Becca Osmer was able to play volleyball with a shredded knee.
The coaches in the Central California Conference were in that group.
Despite playing with a torn anterior cruciate ligament, Osmer was named the CCC MVP for a second straight season after leading Buhach Colony to a conference title.
"I think it meant more to her this year considering everything she had to overcome," said her mother Michelle Osmer, who was named the coach of the year.

"She earned the coaches' respect. In the beginning it was real hard. She didn't know if she would be able to help out the team.
"When league hit, she was able to lead the team in some categories -- even at 90 percent."
