Here are the standout players from the class 4A Laporte Regional last weekend including players from Laporte, Warsaw, Crown Point, and Laporte.
Back for her 3rd and final year on varsity at Laporte,brought it this season. This year for Laporte, Ava was a standout in all phases, with over 300 kills and 200 digs for the Slicers. As a hitter, Ava just has a knack for finding the floor. As for back row, along with her great serve receive, Ava reads on defense well and fills all holes. The most impressive stat for Ava isn’t either of those. It comes from behind the serving line. This year, Ava led Indiana 4A volleyball in Aces by 25+ with 106 and counting, the most in a single season since 2021. Looking ahead, Ava will finish her club career with Kealoha 18-1s. As for the next level, Ava is definitely collegiate caliber. I’d be interested to see if she decides to continue as a hitter or transitions to being a DS/L and capitalizing on her well rounded skillset.
Back to lead the way for Warsaw. As the captain for her 2nd year is Sophomore Libero. Ellie, a product of the elite development Boilers offers, is a 3-time open National Champion and 2-time All American. Transitioning to Warsaw, Ellie finished top-10 in the country for digs among the Freshman class. This year, as a sophomore, she’s on pace to finish top 20 in the state for all of 4A. For those of you who don’t know yet, Ellie is the real deal, and I’d consider her the best DS/L in all of Indiana for her class. Heading back to play for boilers 16-1s this year for club, I’d be on the lookout for another All American level season followed by a Power 5 commitment.
Back to lead the way for Crown Point, for the 2nd year in a row, stands Sophomoreat 5’11. This year, during her sophomore campaign, she led the team in digs and service receptions. In addition to having the endurance front row, Schara lead the team in kills by over 300. Watching Elle play, it’s no surprise she’s top 10 nationally in her class for kills. She has an incredible talent for reading the defense and finding open space on the court to score. Using her 5’11 athletic frame to her advantage, Elle runs a variety of sets to create holes in the block and give her open hitting lanes. With the level she’s playing at already, this is a girl who 100% should be on your radar to make a D1 commitment during her Junior season. This club season, Elle’s competing for 1st Alliance out of Illinois.
Back for her 3rd and final year on varsity, Gabriella played the lead role in the offense for Munster. This year, she ended with a team high 259 kills while maintaining a 60% kill percentage. Gabriella is the powerhouse hitter that every team wishes they had. Coming in at 6’0″, she uses her size and experience to hit the ball over the blocks of opponents as well as an array of shots to pick apart defenses. Looking ahead, Gabriella will finish her club career at Ultimate Volleyball club out of Illinois before taking on the next level at Gannon University.
