An area that produces some of the best volleyball teams in Division 2-4 regularly, the thumb is a place that can’t be overlooked for talent.

Here’s a look at some of the players that really shined in the last year to help the thumb remain a talent-filled portion of the state.

Grace Schlaud, OH Brown City (2021)

Schlaud earned All-State honors for Brown City during the 2019 prep season by showcasing her abilities to be a six-rotation players. She had 427 kills, 373 digs and 50 aces to lead the Green Devils to a regional final in Division 3. Schlaud will be coming into 2020 as one of the top hitters in the thumb area and will be making a push to be one of the top hitters in all of Division 3.

Hannah Farnsworth, MH North Branch (2021)

The 2019 season was still a successful one for North Branch despite being in rebuilding mode. The Broncos reached the Division 2 regional final and established one of the top middles in the area. Farnsworth had 344 kills, 82 blocks and 57 aces last fall. This upcoming season, Farnsworth will lead an experienced North Branch team to big things.
