Let’s take a tour of Wisconsin by way of defenders from the Class of 2023.  Let’s take a trip from the Fox Valley, Greater Milwaukee, Madison, Lacrosse, and central Wisconsin areas. Here we have five class of ’23’s top defensive players.

Bethany Roethel – 5’6 – Outside Hitter - Westby

Roethel is a hidden gem from the west side of the state.  She is a six-rotation player who shows a lot of fire and competitiveness. She is a constant in serve-receive, quick on defense, and finds the open court for the kill.  Roethel will lead her D3 Norsemen for the next 3 years, and with some solid training during the Club season, she could really turn some heads as a defensive superstar.

Coghlan was by far one of the best freshmen in serve-receive at the state tournament in 2019.  With a tough lefty serve, she provides the first line of defense by forcing teams out of system.  Coghlan does a great job of staying balanced and is quick to react on defense.  She is solid and is commonly the most consistent player on the court.
