Even though I made it to a large number of games there were several defensive players in the Class of 2024 that I did not get to see play in person.
Here is a group of deep diggers in Kansas who sadly were not seen by eyes during the 2023 season. I hope to be able to catch a majority of them during the upcoming club season.
Tessa Lohse, 5’8”, L, Hanover, ‘24
Lohse led the Hanover Wildcats in digs during the 2023 season. She racked up 860 digs in 89 sets played. She is a member of the 1,000-career dig club with over 1,400.
Clare Kuntz, 5’0”, L/DS, Chapman, ‘24
Kuntz was a defensive wizard during her senior season. She collected 500 digs in 77 sets played for the Fighting Irish.
Tori Brown, 5’3”, L, Maranatha Christian Academy, ‘24
During her high school career, Brown never saw a ball she didn’t want to dig. She had over 1,300 career digs for the Eagles finishing her senior season with 482 in 107 sets played.
Addison Foster, 5’5”, L, Derby, ‘24
I saw Foster play last club season but did not get to watch Derby play. She finished her senior campaign with 463 digs in 91 sets played. She finished with 400-plus digs in her final three high school seasons and finished her high school career with 1,653 total digs.
