Drew Liddle (Left) receives an award for his excellence from MSHAA.

Drew Liddle, senior, is an integral part of the boys volleyball team at Westminster, as he plays the libero position. He is the libero and is very well liked among his teammates. Not only does he play volleyball, but he is also a part of the boys varsity basketball team.

His uncommon attributes did not go unnoticed by MSHSAA–Missouri State High School Activities Association, as he received an “Award of Excellence” for his “Exemplary Display of Sportsmanship, Ethics, & Integrity.” Caylin Doehring, senior, was the other recipient of this honor.

Although Liddle is not the flashiest player on the basketball or volleyball court, he is very reliable. This year, he has received 289 serves in 48 total games played and has only made 45 errors which is 84%. He has 207 days this year, which is the most on the team.

“Drew is a great player to have out on the court and a good friend off the court,” said Colin Millburn, junior volleyball player.

In this year‘s basketball season, Drew had limited time due to the fact that the team was led by so many young studs. However, whenever he got the chance to go into a game, he made the most of it. A specific memory that I personally have of Drew is when he knocked down a couple of three’s in the corner against Lindbergh, and the four people that were at the game, due to COVID restrictions, were going crazy.

Drew will be remembered as not only a great leader but also a loyal friend and teammate. He will be attending Harding University and is looking forward to college, even though he won’t be pursuing any sports. Liddle’s positive attitude and hard work will be missed in the Westminster volleyball and basketball programs.
