With a plethora of teams coming into Milwaukee, this will give some players plenty of exposure and experience playing against other top caliber opponents. College coaches will have the chance to recruit on a regional level and evaluate. With January being over, teams are starting to find more consistency in lineups, players might start to find their groove, and combinations are starting to clean up a bit. Here are some top prospects that are available from the state of Wisconsin as well as from teams out of state.
Class of 2018
Lauren Spaulding, Outside Hitter/DS, Sheboygan North, WVA 18 Black
Spaulding has been a solid player on the pin all throughout her club career and at Sheboygan North which has really gained a lot of momentum in the past couple of years. This is Spaulding’s first year playing for WVA and has a lot of weapons around her. A true utility player who can play on either pin and a solid defender she is a great, late pick up for a college program.
Lizzie Lightner, Middle Blocker, Kewaskum, Milwaukee Sting 18 Black
Lightner is a new addition to Milwaukee Sting, but is part of the 18 Black team that just captured a bid to Nationals last weekend in Omaha. The 6’0 middle is very athletic and is late to be seen on the recruiting scene and would be a huge pick up with her athleticism.
Olivia Kudronowicz, Outside Hitter/DS, Muskego, Milwaukee Sting 18 Silver
Kudronowicz brings a lot of athleticism to Sting 18 Silver and is a utility player who can play on the pin and is dependable in the back row. Being on this team will give Kudronowicz a chance to compete in practice against a multitude of players who are going to be at the Division 1 and Division 2 level. 18 Silver will be playing in the Open Division and will be extremely competitive.
Madyson Schroeder, Bay Port, WVA 18 Black – DS/Libero
Katie Hoeffner, Appleton North, WVA 18 Black – OH/DS
Nicole Macaluso, Sussex Hamilton, Milwaukee Sting 18 Silver – Setter
Kaleigh Beehler, Maple Lake (MN), MN Select 18-2 – MB
Carlie Burandt, Anoka (MN), MN Select 18-2 – OPP
Jessica Nelson, Andover (MN), MN Select 18-2 – OH
Class of 2019
Tommy Albers, Neenah, Milwaukee Black 18
At the WVA Invite #1 in early January, Albers was one of the setters running a 6-2 for Sting 18 Black. At Neenah High School, Albers is the go to, running a 5-1 for the Rockets who are always one of the top teams in Division 1. This past high school season she dished out 982 assists, earning all conference honors.
Selena Levendoski, Clayton, MN Select 17-1
Levendoski carried her high school team of Clayton (WI) to the WIAA Division 4 state title, dethroning the four time champs of Wausau Newman Catholic. A dynamic athlete, Levendoski also plays for Clayton’s state caliber basketball team. She is not the prototypical middle, she is at 5’9/5’10, but is an extremely quick jumper, strong, and a solid swing to use the block or find the open spot. A 2nd Team All State member, Levendoski will be a great pick up that can play at various positions and also knows how to win.
Annie Hopp, Sheboygan North, Milwaukee Sting 17 Silver
An all conference setter for Sheboygan North in the Fox River Classic Conference, Hopp had over 1,000 assists this past high school season. Accustomed to playing a Nationals schedule, Hopp is in her first year at playing Milwaukee Sting and will improve her game with solid training. She will team up with Chloe Tome who is one of the top beach players in the state from Wauwatosa East, a solid, springy outside that has a thunder for an arm.
Syra Tanchin, STMA (MN), MN Select 17-1, 6’1 Outside Hitter
Kelsie Sealock, Osseo (MN), MN Select 17-1, 5’8 Libero
Kate Achenbach, Osseo (MN), MN Select 17-1, 6’2 OPP
