Saint Thomas More High School might not be the first team you think of when someone says volleyball in Wisconsin, but they should be on your radar. They are in the Metro Classic Conference and took second place last year in the conference tournament to The Prairie School who they had beaten earlier in the season. But, their record is not the reason you should be watching them this coming season.

What makes the varsity team at Saint Thomas Moore unique is they had no starting seniors in 2017. In fact, the majority of their starting varsity players were sophomores who were also in the starting lineup their freshman year in 2016. It is extremely rare in high school volleyball not to have at least one starting senior.

This program is clearly building from the ground up; and with an extremely strong class of 2020, they have been able to do so, growing each and every season. Their powerhouse group of incoming juniors include outside hitter Melanie Monaco, setters Josie D’Amato and Maddie Hoch, libero Katie Hock, middle blocker Jenna Flayter, and defensive specialist Emily Klamik.
