One of the best tournaments of the season has come and gone. Triple Crown did not disappoint.
The pin attackers across the field were the top shelf picks and there were so many.
Let’s take a look at some of the standout setters from Triple Crown.
Izzy Starck – Colorado Juniors (Penn State)
The 17s division was stacked with some power house setters. Colorado Juniors was led by setter/pin attack Izzy Starck. A player with a great IQ for the game as both an attacker and setter, Starck was so much fun to watch in action. She’s unafraid to run the ball anywhere along the net and has an eye for the open court.
Charlie Fuerbringer – Mizuno Long Beach (Wisconsin)
Just like future Big Ten foe, Starck, Charlie Fuerbringer knows how to bring the heat and run a tight offense. This is the first time I got to see Fuerbringer live and she does not disappoint. You can see her strong roots on the beach take way on the court and it makes her so much more fun to watch.
Abby Yoder – NKYVC (Ohio State)
Another recent Big Ten bound commit, Abby Yoder drove her team all the way to the championship match, ultimately winning the 17 Elite division at Triple Crown. The last time I saw Yoder in action was almost a year ago at MEQs and man, has her game evolved so much since then. And she’s only going to be getting better.
Ella Craggs – Michigan Elite
The speed of Craggs’ offense continues to get faster and faster and her team is starting to really get into a groove. Ella Craggs was easily one of the top setters in the 16s division at Triple Crown. Beyond her newfound speed, her defense at the net and the back court was top notch. And those dumps on two always hit ya when you least expect it!
Mallory Matheny – Mintonette
This is a player to keep an eye on for years to come. Mallory Matheny can easily be touted as one of the premier setters of this class. While she’s well-equipped with a luxury of powerhouses on her side of the net. It’s the way she manipulates the game to make the game even tougher that is so impressive.
Maleah Evans & Dawn Moore – Mad Frog
The one-two punch you can’t recover from. This Mad Frog teams is ran off the hands of two extremely talented setters with an artillery of weapons to their disposal. Evans is an undersized dandy with a great touch on the ball. Same can be said for Moore, who not only runs as a setter, but doubles as a killer at the net.
