My ultimate dream would be to have all the club volleyball world in the Midwest gather and we can have an informal gathering and have an awards ceremony much like the "Dundies" from "The Office".  A little awkward, a little funny, but at the end of the day volleyball is all one big family (dysfunctional at times), but we still enjoy what we do and others we get to work with.  These unofficial midseason awards are for teams I’ve seen play live.  I do my best to get out to as many events as I can, take notes, and really promote the positive things these teams are doing.  Here is what I’ve seen so far the first half of the club season as we head into some major events for March and April.

The Gold Star

Club Ignit 16 Blue (IA) 

Definitely gold star worthy when you win Triple Crown, the top tournament in the country which Club Ignit 16 Blue out of the West Des Moines area defeated Arizona Storm to take the title.  Denver commit, Lauren Carter Lauren Carter 5'11" | S Winterset | 2022 State IA quarterbacks the offense and Hayden Kubik Hayden Kubik 6'1" | OH West Des Moines Valley | 2022 State IA , the top Class of 2022 player in Iowa definitely
