Blocking is an incredibly important aspect of volleyball, and one that includes making extremely fast decisions and then reacting. The entire defense builds itself off of the blockers positioning and the two blockers going up on the opposing hitter need to be completely in sync with each other. 

The relationship between two blockers is very similar to that of a setter and hitter, there needs to be a lot of mutual trust and understanding between them, as well as a seamless movement. It is very hard to achieve this, but some blocking duos in the Badger Region make it look easy.

Monica and Natalie both are very detail oriented players and extremely diligent. It shows in their blocking form and collaboration with each other. Individually they put up massive blocks, but together they are nearly unstoppable. Natalie, also a setter on the team, is a great all around player. Monica is a great athlete and was a key player in Arrowhead’s state championship in 2019.
