With the conclusion of some last minute tune up tournaments this Saturday, it is officially post season!
October 30th marks the day we’ve been all waiting for since the start of the season in August. The Road to Kellogg Begins NOW!
This marks the first post-season for many of the big names of tomorrow. Let’s take a look at the five best rookies to look out for in these next three weeks.
If you see Mercy make their grand return to Kellogg Arena in a few weeks, look no further than the freshman phenom that is. While Mercy has produced solid teams year in and year out after their championship run in 2019, they’ve always been missing that one small piece to clear the hump. This fall looks to be like they’ve found it in this left side attacker. Kalczysnki in her first season has already cemented herself as the go-to arm on a team of talented, athletic attackers. She’s put up over 300 kills in her rookie season to pace the Marlin offense.
From one freshman phenom in the Catholic League to the next. This is going to be a good battle for years to come with these young players.has been putting on quite the showcase for the reigning champs, Marian. With an impressive returning roster, the Mustangs lost quite a bit of production in their front line. In only her debut season, LeFevre has been able to more than fill that gap left by the likes of Ella Schomer (Wofford). As the second leading attacker for Marian, LeFevre is vastly approaching the 300 kill mark on the season.
– Grand Rapids Christian
Much to the likes of Mercy’s rookie, Grand Rapids Christian has found themselves back in the mix of things thanks to the new kid on the block.has been on fire from the get for the Eagles. A team that is arguably one of the favorites to not only make it to Battle Creek, but to the championship match, GRC is going to be top-tier for years to come. Goodyke leads the Eagles with nearly 300 kills on the season hitting on an impressive .250 clip. Being in one of the toughest conferences in Michigan and playing in a brutal schedule, this is impressive to see in a debut season.
– Grand Haven
Sticking to the west side here. This is going to be a bloodbath for volleyball for years to come with this class.is one of the most dominant attackers in the state already. Standing at 6’3, Woiteshek has been blessed by nature. But then you see her in action, Woiteshek is so much more than just a big, physical body. Playing with a maturity well beyond her age, or experience, Woiteshek knows how to show up in the big matches. A trait that will come up big time in Grand Haven’s brutal post-season route.
– Byron Center
She entered the season as the top rated player of the 2027 class. Have we been proved wrong? Absolutely not. Much like how Goodyke has turned GRC back into a power house, Byron Center is very much back on the map in terms of volleyball powerhouses.could very well be touted as one of the best defenders in the state, regardless of age or division. With an keen sense of the court, Johnson has full control of the defense. No swing is too big, no shot too clever, Johnson is seemingly always one step ahead.
