It’s graduation time, and with that, it’s time to send off our 2018 players with the final rankings of their high school careers.
We’ve updated the Class of 2018 rankings now that their senior years of high school – and club volleyball – are over. Each day we will release more rankings until we get to the top five.
For now, here are the players that finished ranked #71-75. Congrats to them all and best of luck in the future! Thanks for all you did to make high school volleyball in Nebraska so amazing!
#71 – Sydney Daniels, 5’6, Setter/DS, Millard West (Nebraska Elite) – committed to Sioux Falls University
Daniels has proven to be one of the most consistently outstanding volleyball players in the state for the past handful of years. In the younger age divisions she was one of the top setters and also developed into a strong backrow player in recent years, where she is most likely to contribute at the college level. In her senior year at Millard West she established career highs in assists (556), digs (193) and ace serves (29).
#72 – Gracey England, 5’7, Setter, Malcolm – committed to Midland University
As a two-year starter for the Clippers, England may have played in the shadow of Gatorade Player of the Year Jaela Zimmerman, but in many ways the senior setter was the straw that stirred the drink for Malcolm’s success. England ran the Malcolm offense well and kept it as balanced as it could be and did so well enough to earn a scholarship to NAIA power Midland. England finished her career at Malcolm with 1,754 assists, 245 digs and 79 ace serves.
#73 – Lydia Permenter, 5’10, RS, Ralston (Banzai) – committed to Central CC
Despite being undersized, Permenter was a big difference difference maker at the net during her career. She had 222 kills in helping lead Ralston to the state tournament as a senior and finished her career as a Ram with 498 kills, 64 aces and more than 1,000 digs – including 450 as a senior. That kind of versatility helped lead her to a chance to play in college at Central Community College.
#74 – Rose Reed-Bouley, 6’2, MH, Omaha Gross (Nebraska Elite) – committed to Bellevue University
Reed-Bouley was the go-to attacker for Gross the past two years and she delivered for the Cougars. She had 207 kills as a senior while hitting .290 and had 218 her junior year while hitting at a .229 clip. She also finished her career at Gross with 124 solo blocks – including 79 her senior year. At Nebraska Elite, she was a key piece of the 18 Envy team which earned a big to the USA Girls Junior National Championships earlier this year. She is committed to Bellevue University.
#75 – Camden Blowers, 5’8, OH/DS, Lincoln Northeast (Nebraska Juniors) – committed to Grand View University
Blowers proved to be one of the most versatile players in the state during a four-year stint on the Lincoln Northeast volleyball team. She finished her career with the Rockets with 465 kills – including 230 her junior year when she was asked to be an attacker. She also finished with 640 digs, including 241 her junior year when she was asked to take on a defensive specialist role. She also finished with more than 1,400 serve receptions and 60 ace serves. Her all-around ability earned her a chance to play at Grand View University.
