As the event quickly approaches, let’s take a look at some of the prospects who have already signed in and will be there showing their skills.
Recently crowned as a state champion with Grand Oaks, Anderson was very active during the team’s campaign, coming off the bench in the double sub to give the Grizzlies power and size at the net. She uses her length very well offensively and has a heavy right arm, making contact with the ball at a high point and swinging it hard. Anderson is particularly good at hitting a quicker set on the right in which she can beat the blockers by finding gaps in it. The right side hitter is also a strong blocker, who’s able to put pressure on opposing hitters with her long arms and makes good reads above the net.
Hodges got some playing time with a Jordan team that made history by taking the program to the playoffs for the first time and showed some promising signs when she was on the court. She’s a complete outside hitter, who can play all six rotations and gets to contribute on both sides of the ball. Hodges’ ball control is excellent, what makes of her a very productive player on the backcourt, but she also knows her way around the net, benefiting from her excellent shot selection to score points and keep errors at a low.
A very athletic and skilled outside hitter, Polasek had a strong junior high school season with Bryan, producing for the team on both sides of the ball. Despite not being very tall, she can be a force at the net, getting off the floor well and swinging with tremendous power with her quick right arm. Polasek likes to hit a quick, shortened set on the left, which helps her beat the blockers and opens up more court to her swings. The pin hitter is also very capable defensively, displaying great tactical discipline and outstanding positioning on the backcourt, which allows her to make plays very often.
