Now is the time I get to be impressed by the newest addition to our high school volleyball teams, the freshmen! It is so exciting to start reviewing these newcomers to our ranks. There are so many talented freshmen this year, let’s review some of them below.
Garcia is a 5’11” freshman setter from Reagan High School. Garcia is long, lean, and fast. She never gives up when chasing down an errant ball. She sacrifices her body to dig off the floor if needed. Her sets were spot on. She is very athletic and a pleasure to watch play. She has such grace when she plays and is always to the ball, always to her target, and always where she is needed. She communicates well and revs up her teammates prior to each serve. I cannot wait to see how much more she develops in the next couple of years!
Rulmyr is a 5’8″ setter out of Georgetown High School. She is very athletic, has good hops, and is on fire when she is on the court. She is moving her feet to get the ball quicker than anyone else, she looks happy and excited to be on the court. Her hands are like butter, they are so soft. She motivates, communicates, and remediates on the court. She is a smart athlete and makes great choices on where to send the ball during a match. Very good athlete!
Sanders is a 5’6″ setter out of Canyon High School’s freshman class. Sanders is a very strong athlete. She is quick, accurate, and has great range. She is all over the court and gets the ball where it needs to go. She is a great blocker and can dig as well. She makes good decisions about who to set and what to do with the ball. She is a force to be reckoned with and has a great attitude on the court.
Seal is a freshman from Johnson High School. Seal is great in the back row. I mean so good that I am immensely impressed with her skills. She is a talented setter as well. She always handles the ball with care, no doubles here, and uses good sense with where she places it for her hitters. She communicates well and drives the scoring on her side of the net.
Serna is a setter from Churchill High School’s freshman class. Serna is full of fire when she steps onto the court. She is always on her feet and ready for anything as soon as she enters the game. She has great footwork, and decision-making, and watching her set is like taking a class on the finer points of her position. She looks so happy whenever she is playing and that carries over to her team as well. She is a motivating force on the court. Great athlete!
Whisenton is a 5’8″ setter from Brandeis High School’s freshman class. She is lean and quick. She moves so fast that she never runs out of time or space to set her hitters with ease. She has a great platform, soft hands, and great control and range. She evenly spreads around the ball to her hitters causing confusion with the other team’s blockers. She never gives up on a point and it ends up helping her team be successful. Impressive player!
