A very important factor of the game are those outside hitters that get all of the out of system swings and control the ball with poise. An outside hitter can be your powerhouse hitter, strategic mind-master, or just a plain leader. Here are six 4th region outside hitters that are special in their own way. 

Olivia Overmohle- A sophomore in 2019, Olivia Overmohle, was the Greenwood Gator’s second starting outside hitter. She hit a .206 on the year and had 231 kills. It was her first year starting varsity, and she marked her spot as a strategic, powerful outside hitter. Overmohle has tons of potential and will help lead the Gators to hopefully another very successful season. Watch out for this awesome junior! 

Katie HowardKatieHowardOHGreenwood | 2021StateKY- Mentioned earlier in the top 4th region players to watch, Katie HowardKatieHowardOHGreenwood | 2021StateKY definitely earns a spot in the region’s best outside hitters. Hitting a .436 on the left is extremely impressive as well as earning 488 kills. She even added 243 digs, 55 service aces, and 52 blocks. The numbers don’t lie that she is definitely top in the region as well as in the state, ranking 14th for most kills.
