All around solid class of liberos is starting to rise out of the Class of 2020. Caitlyn Crawford was one of the first to make her verbal commit heading to South Carolina in the SEC. Who will be next? With their Junior season about to start their are plenty to take a look at who will have a huge impact for their high school team and club.
Tahya Pozorski – Motion (MVP) – Oconomowoc
Oconomowoc runs deep with high level defense players with Crawford, Pozorski, and Ashley Sharkus who will also be a Junior this upcoming season. After graduating Stony Brook commit, Paige Jaeger and UNC Greensboro commit Amanda Garvens the Raccoons are not rebuilding their defense, just reloading. Pozorski has had high level USA High Performance training and makes playing left back look easy. With little wasted movement, Pozorski is solid, taking pace off a hard driven spike, while also being a go to serve receiver who can play half the court. Pozorski is definitely on the Division 1 radar and would be very solid with whatever school is able to get her on board.
Amber Bischel – Wisconsin Juniors – Germantown
Wisconsin Juniors was one of the most entertaining teams to watch play this year and that started with their first contact in Bischel. She just finds a way to get it done. Super gritty. She’s not afraid to dive into a bunch of chairs for a ball, but yet make starts the offense with a solid first contact. Germantown is going to be sneaky good this year with a crew of high flying and powerful hitters, but a libero like Bischel puts them into another category that will allow them to compete with the elite teams in the state.
Rylee Vaughn – Milwaukee Sting – Lake Country Lutheran
Vaughn has played in big game atmospheres while being a contributing member to Lake Country Lutheran’s state championship in 2017. A steady, dependable player who can step up in big time situations is something that cannot always be measured on a stat sheet. LCL will be bringing back plenty of ball control this year and will have one of the top defenses in Division 3.
Megan Piton – Wisconsin Volleyball Academy – Appleton North
High IQ, on the court and in the classroom. Piton is a 4.0 student that has been playing high level club and beach volleyball her whole career. Appleton North has plenty of options when it comes to a libero, with Piton being a go to leader for the team as well.
Ainsley Apel – Capital Volleyball Academy – Sauk Prairie
Abel is definitely a hidden gem that needs to be on the radar of college coaches. A DS mostly for the Capital Adidas 16s team, Apel was clutch in plenty of situations for CVA this past club season. Another student of the game, high IQ player, Apel will continue to climb up the Class of 2020 ranks throughout the high school and club seasons.
Hope Sholten – Wisconsin Volleyball Academy – Sheboygan North
Sholten has been playing alongside high level players at North for years and training with a future Big 10 player in Dru Kuck. Sholten is scrappy, all out effort, all the time. A solid communicator on the court, Sholten has the tools to play at the next level.
