OH Madi Andrews, Nelson, sophomore

Andrews quickly became one of the Hawks’ go-to players as a freshman playing opposite SBLive Oregon all-state first-team hitter Kalista Lukovich. Andrews is the state’s top class of 2026 recruit according to Prep Dig and was the only freshman to receive 6A all-state honors last season, making the honorable mention list with 377 kills (hitting .236), 109 aces, 250 digs and 38 blocks to help Nelson finish third at the state tournament. “She’s just always been at that different level,” coach Lisa Flaherty-McBee said. “She’s always three steps ahead in her thinking. Her ability to anticipate plays is almost supernatural, and she just keeps getting better and better.”

OH Kendyl Arnett, West Albany, senior

Arnett was a 5A second-team all-state selection last fall, leading the Bulldogs with 383 kills, 293 digs (with only one ball-handling error all season) and 37 aces. “Her depth and dynamic as a player are unmatched,” coach Megan Wallace said. “She has the volleyball IQ that allows her to make such smart decisions that not many can make in real time. We look forward to watching her finish strong in her senior season.”

OH Zoey Bauer, Putnam, junior

Bauer played libero for the Kingsmen the past two seasons, but coach Jasmine Varela is transitioning her to outside hitter this season. “She is a hitter to watch,” Varela said. “She is powerful and defensively can pick up any ball. Zoey is also a lot of fun on the court as you can always catch her dancing.”

OH Abby Behrman, Estacada, junior

Behrman split time between playing middle and outside hitter last season, when she made the all-Tri-Valley Conference third team. “Abby has a great attitude and is the definition of a team player,” Rangers coach Sue Doan said. “She brings athleticism and size to the lineup with a powerful attack.”

OH Mylee Blake, West Albany, junior

Blake plays opposite all-state outside Kendyl Arnett in the rotation, and she was an all-Mid-Willamette Conference honorable mention pick last fall with 244 kills, 55 blocks, 154 digs and 31 aces. “Mylee is a beast at the net,” said Bulldogs coach Megan Wallace. “Her ability to put the ball away is hard to defend. She plays with consistency, and it’s hard to rattle her. We are excited to watch her grow even more this season.”

OH Emma Brewer, Salem Academy, sophomore

Brewer hardly played like a freshman last year for the 2A state champion Crusaders, making the all-state first team while amassing 453 kills, 405 digs, 68 aces and 20 blocks.

OH/RS Thanvi Chilukuri, Westview, senior

Chilukuri moved up from the all-Metro League third team as a sophomore to the second team last season playing for Sunset before transferring one exit down Sunset Highway. She committed to Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh. “She’ll be a good addition to our team in the front row,” Wildcats coach Janelle Brandt said. “She’s a three-year varsity player and been an all-league player, and watching her play, she has that calming confidence on the court.”

OH Sydney Chrismer, Forest Grove, freshman

Chrismer is one of several newcomers coach Jeff Leo is counting upon to help the Vikings take the next step after they made their first 6A playoff appearance since 2013 last fall. “Sydney will make an immediate impact on the success of this team and complete a great outside duo with senior Jadyn Punchocar,” Leo said.

RS Jane Christensen, Beaverton, senior

Christensen had a breakthrough club season, playing for the OJVA 16 Gold team that was the first CEVA team to qualify for the Open division at USA Volleyball Nationals. Her performance on that team has drawn interest from local colleges, and Beavers coach Ashley Waggoner hopes she can build upon that effort this fall. “She is known for her powerful arm, formidable blocking skills, and versatility to play in the middle when the team requires it,” Waggoner said.

OH Meredith Coleman, St. Paul, senior

Coleman becomes the No. 1 hitting option outside with the graduation of all-state hitter Halsie Hempfling after a season that saw her hit .389 with 111 kills. “A good server with a positive attitude,” said Buckaroos coach Les Hiller.

OH Brilynn Combs, Grant Union, senior

Combs missed the first half of her junior season with an ankle injury. When she returned, Prospectors coach Mariah Moulton moved her from setter to outside hitter, where she thrived, ending the season with 140 kills, 230 digs and 65 aces. “She has grown to be consistent and who we look to when we are in a hole,” Moulton said.

OH Sara Davies, Sunset, senior

Davies was a second-team all-Metro League selection as an all-around player last fall, and in the first couple of weeks this season, she displayed her versatility with a team-high 65 kills, 32 digs and 10 aces.

OH Teagan Dixon, Clackamas, junior

Cavaliers coach Nathan Blankenship has moved the promising hitter from middle blocker to outside hitter to put her 6-foot-2 frame to better use in the attack. “Bringing her huge jump and elevated contact to this key offensive position for Clackamas will be a major factor for the Cavs this season,” Blankenship said. “We are looking at the huge improvement Teagan has made, and coupled with her leadership growth, we are fortunate indeed to have an emerging powerhouse at Clackamas.”

OH Giana Elgarico, Marist Catholic, junior

Elgarico made the 4A all-state honorable mention list as a sophomore last fall, when she led 4A with 402 kills to go with 277 digs and 69 aces. She spent the summer playing on the beach, teaming with Churchill’s Nyah Mitchell to take first place in the Seaside Open U16 division in August. “She’s jumping higher and brings her beach experience to the indoor game,” coach Shari Pimental said.

OH Emma Fairburn, Sheldon, senior

Fairburn was one of the leading hitters at Roseburg last fall, making the all-Southwest Conference second team for one of the Irish’s longtime rivals — she had 13 kills when Roseburg handed Sheldon its only SWC loss last season. Now, the Biola University commit slots in alongside another returning all-SWC pick, Jordan McKibben, after transferring over the summer. “We’re excited for her positive energy and how she does what’s best for the team,” coach Martine Wodke said.

OH/MB Emma Fauth, Wilsonville, junior

Fauth transferred from Tigard, where as a sophomore she was an all-Three Rivers League honorable mention selection for the Tigers. “Her versatility and ability to play six rotations will come in handy,” Wildcats coach Scott Thompson said. “Her coachability combined with her big block and heavy hitting will be a force for us.”

OH Sidney Friesen, Sprague, senior

As a junior last season, Friesen helped the Olympians reach the 6A quarterfinals for the first time since their surprise appearance in the 2018 final, receiving all-state honorable mention after finishing with 362 kills, 360 digs, 61 aces and 15 blocks. She has committed to Western Oregon. “Sidney is a six-rotation outside and a true leader,” coach Anne Olsen said. “She is ready to compete.”

OH Megan Gilbo, Redmond, junior

Panthers coach Travis Kandle called Gilbo “probably our most solid athlete. She not only can jump out of the gym but also reach sideline to sideline with the quickest players in our league. Megan has one of the hardest hits I have seen at RHS in the past few years.”

RS Bridget Gould, Marshfield, senior

Gould pushed the Pirates to another level after she transferred from North Bend, with the University of Oregon commit winning SBLive Oregon player of the year honors in leading the program to its first 4A state championship. She finished with 325 kills, 188 digs, 44 aces, 32 blocks with a 2.10 serve receive rating. “Bridget is a dynamic player to watch,” coach Tammie Montiel said. “Her ability to hit over and around blocks is hard to stop. While playing club ball in the offseason, she developed a range of shots that will only add to her arsenal this season.”

OH/S Brooklyn Hanni, Sweet Home, senior

Hanni is a three-year starter for the Huskies, coming off a junior season in which she made the all-Oregon West Conference first team to help them make the 4A state playoffs. “A very strong, athletic, six-rotation player with a great serve,” coach Mary Hutchins said. “She can hit with velocity and is really naturally athletic.”

OH Piper Hanson, Creswell, freshman

Hanson joins the Bulldogs fresh off being named MVP of the 14 Open Division at the Emerald City Classic playing for Webfoot VBC. Despite being a freshman, she’ll have plenty of familiarity with the program — she is longtime coach Anna Baltrusch’s granddaughter.

OH Ashlyn Hartford, Wilsonville, senior

As a junior, Hartford played on the outside opposite 5A co-player of the year Makenna Wiepert until she tore her meniscus in a late-season match against La Salle Prep. She finished the season with 81 kills, 48 digs and 14 blocks, and Wildcats coach Scott Thompson said that after “coming back from eight months of rehabilitation, Ashlyn’s serve receive and accurate hitting are expected to bolster a balanced attack.”

OH/S Destiny Hernandez, Beaverton, junior

Hernandez missed last high school season while recovering from knee surgery, but she came back during club ball to play outside hitter for the OJVA 16 team that won the CEVA regional championship. “Destiny is one of the most skilled utility players in the region,” said Beavers coach Ashley Waggoner. “We’re ready to utilize her across various positions, whether it’s on defense, offense, or even as our backup setter.”

OH Gabby Hill, Nelson, junior

The graduation of SBLive Oregon all-state first-team hitter Kalista Lukovich opens a spot for Hill, who hit .204 in limited action last season with 60 kills and 12 aces. “She’s done a good job of being patient,” said Hawks coach Lisa Flaherty-McBee. “She is ferocious and just has a cannon of an arm. She can crush the ball.”

OH Emily Holmes, Wilsonville, sophomore

After Ashlyn Hartford tore her meniscus late in the 2022 season, Holmes was brought up from JV to become the team’s second outside hitter opposite SBLive Oregon first-team all-state pick Makenna Wiepert. Wildcats coach Scott Thompson said “her mental toughness, outstanding serve receive and accurate hitting was remarkable given she was a freshman, and her first taste of varsity was at the state tournament.” Holmes also is an Oregon Hunter Jumper Association equestrian champion on her horse, Holloway.

OH Sloane Holstrom, Lincoln, junior

Holstrom averaged 13 kills per match for the Cardinals last season and made the all-PIL honorable mention list. She helped the program return to the 6A state playoffs. “Sloane is very versatile and can hit anywhere in the front row,” coach Shailah Ricketts said. “She has an aggressive approach and swing and has the ability to play all the way around with a great serve receive and defense.”

OH Emree Hunter, Estacada, senior

Hunter led the Rangers in serve receive percentage last season, when she was a second-team all-Tri-Valley Conference libero, but coach Sue Doan has moved her outside, where she hopes Hunter will take on a larger role in the attack while maintaining primary passing responsibilities.

OH Isabella Jacobson, Crescent Valley, junior

Raiders coach Troy Shorey calls Jacobson “one of the best six-rotation players in the state,” and the numbers seemingly back him up. As a sophomore, she finished with a team-high 311 kills (hitting .222) and 66 aces to go with 280 digs and 16 blocks, leading the Raiders to their first 5A state championship and making the SBLive Oregon all-state second team. “Bella is effective at both pins and enjoys hitting at both,” Shorey said. “She brings consistency in serve receive and a fearless defensive attitude.”

OH Akylah Kaino, Burns, junior

Kaino was a two-time 3A all-state selection at middle blocker, making the first team last season, when she had 324 kills (hitting .297) and 132 blocks. Hilanders coach Paula Toney is transitioning her outside this year to get her more touches. “Akylah is a very explosive player and creates a lot of intensity on the court,” Toney said.

OH Willa Kayfes, Valley Catholic, junior

Kayfes capped a sophomore season that saw her make the all-Lewis & Clark League second team by being named OSAA player of the game as the Valiants swept to the 3A state championship. She can play anywhere along the front row, but coach Becky Kemper said, “she’s primarily going to be an outside because of her ball control.”

OH Reese Kincaid, Central Catholic, sophomore

Kincaid made the all-Mt. Hood Conference second team as a freshman, and first-year Rams coach Kealia Rosa believes she is capable of much more this fall. “Although she is still an underclassman, she will be a dominant force for this squad,” Rosa said. “She has great overall volleyball skills and a lethal arm swing. Reese will be taking on a bigger role this year and is definitely up for the challenge.”

OH Mackenzie King, Burns, senior

King has been one of the best small-school outside hitters in the state the past two seasons, fighting off the effects of a concussion last fall to repeat as a 3A first-team all-state selection and lead the Hilanders back to the state final, where they fell to Valley Catholic to end their title defense. She finished with 325 kills (hitting .266), 173 digs, 81 aces and 267 serve receives. “She has seen a lot of court time and plays with a lot of passion,” coach Paula Toney said. “She is coming back really strong this year.”

OH Shayla Kooch, Redmond, senior

Kooch, who made the all-Intermountain Conference honorable mention list last season, is the younger sister of former Panthers standout Sharisty Kooch, who’s now playing at Division III Alverno College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

RS Lilly Lansing, Jesuit, senior

Crusaders coach Teresa Zimmerlee moved Lansing, a UC Irvine commit and first-team all-Metro League middle blocker last fall (58 blocks, 220 kills, .316 hitting percentage), to right-side this season.

OH Chloe Leluge, Bend, senior

Leluge shared 5A player of the year honors and was a second-team SBLive Oregon all-state selection last season, helping the Lava Bears reach the state final and recording 111 kills, 19 blocks, 76 digs and 15 aces during Intermountain Conference play. She committed to Cal Poly in March.

RS Ashlin Lockman, Crescent Valley, sophomore

Lockman received time as a freshman right-side hitter for the Raiders, playing in 44 sets and finishing with 38 kills, 26 digs and six blocks. Coach Troy Shorey anticipates using her on both sides this fall. “Ashlin has the talent of being able to find gaps in the block and when there are no gaps, uses the block to her advantage,” he said. “She also brings an eagerness to improve and contribute to the team.”

OH Isabella Lowe, Mazama, senior

The Vikings benefit from the twin sister connection of Alexia Lowe setting to Isabella, who finished with 245 kills, 246 digs and 44 aces last season in making the all-Skyline Conference second team. Together, they’ve led the Vikings to back-to-back conference titles (the first two in program history), and last year, made it back to the state tournament for the first time since 2005, where they placed third. “Isabella, much like her twin sister, is a quick-footed and smart athlete,” coach John Downey said. “She is equally as skilled on defense as she is on offense.”

OH Nadiah Luna, South Salem, junior

Luna transferred across town from McKay, where she was an all-Mid-Willamette honorable mention selection for the Royal Scots last fall. She will fill one of the outside hitter roles vacated by the graduation of SBLive Oregon first-team all-state hitter Kayleigh Carpenter and all-Central Valley Conference selection Brooksie Isham. “She is an outstanding passer and defender and brings a lot of smart shotmaking to the court,” said Saxons coach Matthew Leichty.

OH Paige MacDuff, Marshfield, senior

MacDuff was one of three Pirates to be a part of three Sky Em League champions last season, making the all-league first team on the volleyball court with 205 kills, 210 digs, 36 aces and 19 blocks to help them win the program’s first 4A state title. “Paige is an all-around player that uses her height in the front to hit over blocks and her length in the back row to cover a lot of ground defensively,” coach Tammie Montiel said. “She has fine-tuned and developed her game over the past three seasons as a varsity starter, and I am excited to see how it progresses even further this season.”

OH Kammy Mahlum, Liberty, senior

After making the all-Pacific Conference second team as a middle blocker last season, first-year Falcons coach Andy Levoe is moving her outside this year. “Her leadership is needed on the court at all times, and she has worked hard to be a consistent passer, defender and attacker,” Levoe said.

OH/MB Kaylynn Mamac, Sweet Home, junior

Mamac started playing six rotations for the first time last year, finishing the season as a second-team all-Oregon West Conference selection. Huskies coach Mary Hutchins plans to experiment with Mamac all along the front row to determine where she can best help the team. “She’s very versatile and very intense when she needs to be,” Hutchins said.

OH Lola Mastrantonio, Century, sophomore

Mastrantonio looks to build off a freshman season during which she received all-Pacific Conference honorable mention. “She’s a great kid and shows up every day as a leader and hard worker,” said Jaguars coach Caree Mickelsen.

OH Lily Mather, Lincoln, freshman

Cardinals coach Shailah Ricketts is excited to see how Mather develops over the course of her four years at the Southwest Portland school, saying that “she has the potential to be a top hitter in the league. She has a massive vertical and aggressive arm swing. She can also put up a solid block for us. We’re excited to see all that she has to offer this season.”

OH Briella Mathis, South Salem, sophomore

Mathis played out of position last year, blocked by SBLive Oregon first-team all-state hitter Kayleigh Carpenter and all-Central Valley Conference selection Brooksie Isham. Mathis still made the all-CVC honorable mention list, finishing with 111 kills and 28 blocks, but Saxons coach Matthew Leichty is excited to see what she does moving to her natural position on the left this fall. “She will be working hard to make up for some of the offensive losses of those two and has shown big improvement defensively as well,” he said.

OH/S Maggie McCarthy, Grant, junior

McCarthy has established herself as one of the PIL’s top players, making the all-league team twice — including the first team last fall, when she led the Generals in kills and aces.

OH Jordan McKibben, Sheldon, senior

McKibben was half of the Irish’s outside hitting duo last fall, playing all six rotations while making the all-Southwest Conference second team with 212 kills, 212 digs and 41 aces to help them win their first 6A state title. Coach Martine Wodke praised her defensive work last year and how she’s taken to being the No. 1 option this season — she had 19 kills and seven aces in three matches at their opening tournament. “She was very consistent and aggressive,” Wodke said. “She’s going to continue being the person we absolutely go to.”

OH Gillian Merhoff, Mazama, senior

Merhoff arrives at Mazama from Klamath Union, where she was a first-team all-Skyline Conference pick last season as she transitioned from middle blocker to outside hitter.

OH/MB Nyah Mitchell, Churchill, junior

Mitchell is one of the state’s top underclassmen, transferring from North Eugene in August after making the all-Midwestern League first team last season and leading the Highlanders to the 5A state playoffs.

OH Tatum Montiel, Marshfield, junior

Montiel shared 4A player of the year honors and was a third-team SBLive Oregon all-state selection as a sophomore, when she helped lead the Pirates to their first state title with 338 kills, 224 digs, 110 aces, 20 blocks and a 2.22 serve receive rating. Her mother and coach, Tammie Montiel, said that “Tatum has the ability to keep other teams on their toes. She is very diversified in her attack and mixes up her shots based on her great court vision. She is also dominant at the service line and is solid in both serve receive and on defense.”

OH/DS Onyi Nwosu, Central Catholic, sophomore

Nwosu arrived this year from Arlington, Texas, where she was an all-league setter for Mansfield Summit as a freshman. Rams coach Kealia Rosa raved about her versatility and plans to use her outside this fall. “Onyi is quite talented and will be an amazing asset to the team,” Rosa said.

RS/S Bella Oliver, Cascade, senior

Oliver is one of three four-year starters who helped transform the program from also-rans to a 2021 Class 4A state champion and 2022 runner-up. She made the all-Oregon West Conference first team last fall, when she ranked among the state leaders with 86 service aces. “Bella is our powerhouse lefty,” said Cougars coach Cristina Williams. “She is so smart on the court and sees holes when needed. She will also be a great leader for this team this year.”

OH/MB Lizabelle Osborn, Creswell, senior

Osborn made the 3A all-state second team for the Bulldogs last year, finishing the season with 324 kills and leading them to their fourth consecutive state tournament appearance.

OH Zoey Pappas, Umpqua Valley Christian, senior

Pappas played for the Rise 18 Gold club during the spring, and coach Candice Renyer noticed a difference in the 1A all-state honorable mention selection’s play at camp. “She has come back stronger and smarter, ready to lead her team,” Renyer said. “She has grit and incredible court awareness, which makes her the best kind of hitter.”

OH Rachel Peterson, Grant, senior

Peterson is a six-rotation standout for the Generals, finishing second on the team in kills and digs last season and making the all-PIL first team. “She will be key in the success of our defense this season,” coach Erin Cole said.

OH Jadyn Punchocar, Forest Grove, senior

Punchocar was one of the leading reasons the Vikings made their first 6A playoff appearance since 2013 last fall, making the all-Pacific Conference first team.

RS Mazie Reeser, Stanfield, junior

Reeser played an instrumental role in the Tigers’ fourth-place finish at the Class 2A tournament last fall, the first time the program won a trophy at state. She finished with 244 kills, 311 digs, 45 aces and 33 blocks in making the all-state second team. She also is an aspiring weightlifter, twice winning titles at the school’s Iron Tiger competition that draws lifters from throughout the state.

OH Avery Ruhl, Summit, senior

Ruhl made the all-Intermountain Conference second team for the Storm last season, when she had 153 digs, 111 kills and 44 aces. She took the spring club season off to nurse a back injury, but coach Emily McMahon pronounced her ready to go for this season. “She is the full package of talent, hard-working, extremely coachable and has great grades,” McMahon said. “She is a solid all-around player with amazing passing technique and movement, technical hard hitting and a bullet of a serve.”

OH Kamryn Sande, Cascade, junior

Sande entered the Cougars lineup as a sophomore last season, when she earned all-Oregon West Conference honorable mention and helped them reach the 4A state final. Coach Cristina Williams called her “a ridiculous defender who reads the ball well. Her ball-handling is superb, and she also has a quick arm speed that makes her an asset on that outside position.”

OH/MB Sadie Scott, Churchill, senior

Scott was the offensive leader for the Lancers last season, when she had 146 kills, 118 digs and 16 blocks in making the all-Midwestern League second team.

OH Madison Sherby, Valley Catholic, sophomore

Sherby transferred from Hillsboro after a freshman season in which she received all-Northwest Oregon Conference honorable mention, and she’ll step right into the role previously held by SBLive Oregon all-state second-teamer Frances Eisenhardt. “She is a stud!” Valiants coach Becky Kemper raved. “She is the best passer on the team and a smart hitter that can hit all the spots. Going to be a huge six-rotation player for us.”

OH Paige Thies, Oregon City, junior

Thies is one of the top hitters in the state, winning Three Rivers League player of the year and SBLive Oregon all-state third-team recognition a year ago, when she hit a team-best .412 with 495 kills. She has committed to the University of Arizona. “Paige is really maturing in her play on the court,” said Pioneers coach Erica Frafjord. “She’s always been a dynamic hitter, but she has now added more court awareness to her game and is able to find more openings in our opponents’ defenses. Her power continues to grow as does the speed of her hits.”

OH Avia Tuguldur, Marist Catholic, senior

Tuguldur transferred over the summer from South Eugene and will team with all-state outside Giana Elgarico to provide a punch to the Spartans attack. Tuguldur also is a standout softball player and has committed to Claremont McKenna. “Avia is a six-rotation player and brings positive leadership to the program as well,” said coach Shari Pimental.

OH Brooke Van Well, Dallas, senior

Van Well follows in the footsteps of her older sister, Hailey, who’s now a standout at Southern Oregon University. Brooke made the all-Mid-Willamette Conference honorable mention list last season, and while she stands just 5-foot-6, Dragons coach Shana Lavier said, “she plays like she’s 6 feet tall. She’s extremely versatile on the court and plays all the way around.”

OH/MH Georgia Vawter, Crescent Valley, freshman

While swings might be hard to come by in the Raiders lineup, coach Troy Shorey knows he must find some for Vawter, whom he called “a special talent coming in from a club season in which she played up an age group for G3’s top 16s team. She brings a big swing and net presence that few freshmen do. She is quickly adapting to the high school game and the pace of the game that her team plays at.”

OH/MB Gracie Vohs, Sisters, senior

Vohs committed to Saint Mary’s College in California after a junior season for which she won 3A player of the year honors and made the SBLive Oregon all-state first team, leading the Outlaws to a third-place finish at the state tournament, finishing with 480 kills, 78 aces and 42 blocks.

RS Cecily Wagstaff, Grant, junior

Wagstaff started on the right side for the Generals last season, and coach Erin Cole described her as “one of our top performers in the front row.” She might be the team’s most improved player in the early going, leading the team in kills through two weeks, and Cole said she might set occasionally this fall. “She’s a versatile hitter and strong,” Cole said. “I anticipate big things for Cecily this season.”

OH Amber Walker, Tigard, senior

Walker was a bright spot in an otherwise disappointing 2022 season for the Tigers, making the all-Three Rivers League first team and finishing the year with 314 kills, 226 digs and 29 aces. The Sonoma State commit “has grown as both a player and a leader this year,” said coach Jesse Abell, and stands ready to get the program back in the 6A playoffs for the first time since 2016. “She is very heavy-handed and is never afraid to take big swings no matter where she gets set,” Abell said.

OH Emma Williams, Jesuit, senior

Williams finally gets her chance in the rotation this season after playing behind 6A player of the year and SBLive Oregon all-state first team hitter Isabel Patterson and 6A second-team all-state hitter CeAnna O’Loughlin. She had 30 kills and 16 digs in limited action last year. “She hammers the ball,” said Crusaders coach Teresa Zimmerlee. “She will see considerable playing time outside.”

OH Teagan Wilson, Santiam Christian, senior

Wilson arrived at Santiam Christian this year from West Salem, where she was a first-team all-Central Valley Conference pick last fall. She has committed to Santa Clara University to play beach volleyball next season. “She has been an excellent addition to our team not just because of her talent but because she’s kind and humble and loves to laugh,” said Eagles coach Kelli Fitzpatrick.

RS Sarah Wolff, St. Mary’s Academy, senior

Wolff is another player on the move for the Blues this year, moving to the opposite side of the court after making the all-Three Rivers League honorable mention list as an outside hitter last fall. “She’s going to be the secret sauce for us,” coach Wendy Stammer said. “She’s grown leaps and bounds in club season and will be one of our leaders this year.”

OH Emma Yenchik, Crescent Valley, sophomore

Yenchik transferred from Santiam Christian over the summer, adding an effective hitter on both sides of the net. “She brings a heavy arm swing and eagerness to improve and make an impact,” said Raiders coach Troy Shorey.
