The next high school volleyball season won’t start in Washington until March 2021, but there’s absolutely no reason why we should wait until there to know more about the best teams in each class. In this series, we’ll dissect each of the state’s six divisions by analyzing the top teams and the most promising players and what we can expect from them when the balls are finally allowed to fly. In our opening week, we’ll bring some info on the Class 1A.

 

Lakeside

A four-time State Championship winner, Lakeside has last lifted a trophy in 2016, but they haven’t been too far removed from doing it again in the past few years as the Eagles finished third in 2019 and reached the quarterfinals the year before. For the next season, the team will need to make up for the absences of two of their three All-State team members last season, setter Hannah Stires and 6’2” middle-blocker Mia Pakootas, who are among the five graduates from last year.

 

Their three key players are:

 

Jamie Kennedy – Middle-Blocker/Outside Hitter – Senior
