They've only been practicing for a week, so these are preliminary observations from this match. Clear stars were newcomer, Elise Abi, Katie Kennedy, and Zayna Meyer. Note that Kennedy played middle. Possible most improved would be Muara Hayes, who looked good on the right side. Freshman to watch would be Grace O"Reilly, a left hander who also plays RS. Nicole Hoff, Jenna Giambi, and Savannah Chacon all took turns at the libero position.
Based on this match, Abi looked great. Had a wide range of attacks, blocks well, and is a six rotation player.
Middle, beyond Kennedy, is still a question, although Sheffie had her moments. We'll know more in the fall when a touted freshman arrives, Ella Lomigora.
We'll learn more as they progress through the spring season.
did anyone go to the wvb black and gold match today? ----------
