On the hot seat. That’s where Pine Lake Prep’s Sidney Deffenbaugh prefers to play. The junior combination libero and defensive specialist fills it well for the Pride volleyball team. Buoyed by her latest efforts, Pine Lake merited a berth in the state’s 1A class volleyball playoffs. Courtesy of her latest court contributions, Deffenbaugh is also deemed the school’s athletic of the week. Accompanied (at right) by PLP head volleyball coach Melinda Rothwell, making the personalized plaque presentation is Cliff Hunnicutt, with yearlong program sponsor blueharbor bank.
