Our preview of Indiana high schools continues with a scan of #5-8 in Class 4A. This series of articles isn’t possible without the help of fellow volley dork, Zach McCrite. He is the sole administrator for the website IndianaPrepVolleyball.com, and also a former coach and current ref, just like me. If you’re at all interested in Indiana high school volleyball, go check his site out, you won’t be disappointed.

I’ll also include the MVR, or Most Valuable Returnee, for each team listed.

#8: McCutcheon, 32-2

When the two losses on the season are to the two state finalists, you’re doing something right. I am concerned, however, about their strength of schedule. #25 may win you your sectional, but to get through the northern half of Class 4A in Indiana, you still have Carmel, HSE, Yorktown, New Castle---just to name a few. To compete with those powerhouses, you have to play more of them. They did own wins over Penn (4A #13), Brownsburg (4A #10), Crown Point (4A #7) and Munster (4A #9), but there are too many 2A and 3A schools in their schedule to have me place them higher in these rankings. It’s one thing if you’re New Castle.
