We have hit the end of the road – U18 – yet, it feels like we’ve barely scratched the surface.  We will complete one more list of club team previews for each age division before the New Year at Prep Dig Missouri, so be sure to log in often! 

HPSTL 18 Royal

High Performance St. Louis’ 17 Royal netted a top 25 finish in the Open Division at Nationals last season and carries the majority of that roster over to its 18 Royal team.  The team is primarily made up from Cor Jesu (CJA) players, including the duo of Lily Rogers and Jillian Mattingly. Rogers finished her high school career with 1926 assists, 420 digs, 71 aces and 118 kills. Mattingly earned Class 4 All-State honors in 2019 despite being slowed by injury. The SLU commit hit .393 on the year behind 168 kills. Kelsey Watson is a middle blocker for the Royals and had a strong senior season for CJA with 134 kills and 35 blocks. Libero Carlie Rodgers signed with SLU and finished a stellar senior season at Lindbergh with 389 digs, 195 kills, 17 blocks and 30 aces.
