FROSH 59, Prep Volleyball's list of the nation’s most outstanding high school varsity-playing volleyball freshmen for the 2018 fall season.
HIGHEST HONORABLE MENTION
Congratulations to CORA TAYLOR
Cora Taylor, 5-9 OH, Lawrenceburg (Indiana) – A First Team EIAC All-Conference pick, Taylor had 447 kills, 327 digs, 79 aces and 19 blocks for the 30-4 Tigers, who lost in a Section 3A final. While she sets and hits in club ball, Taylor was a six-rotation outside for Lawrenceburg, anchored serve-receive and was the offensive go-to hitter with her aggressiveness and power.
Congratulations to TAYLOR PRESTON and ABBY SCHAEFER
Taylor Preston, 6-0 MB. St. Henry (Erlanger, Kentucky) – Preston had a big season in leading the Crusaders to a 9th Region Championship and third place finish at the state tournament. The freshman recorded 244 kills and 74 blocks and was so good down the stretch that she earned All-Regional Tournament and All-State Tournament recognition. She is fast and aggressive on offense and also sports a big block.
Abby Schaefer, 5-9 libero, St. Henry (Erlanger, Kentucky) – Schaefer was third overall in the state of Kentucky with 269 digs and also was an anchor for the 9th Region champs in serve-receive. Described by NKYVC club director as a “must watch player” and an “unbelievable libero,” she made a huge impact for the Crusaders. “She has no fear as both a leader and the ability to control the floor,” Hunt added. “She covers a huge amount of court, making it hard for the offense to score.” Schaefer was voted to the 9th Region All-Tournament team.
Awesome job being selected as some of the best varsity playing freshman in the COUNTRY!!!
