High school volleyball won’t start in Washington until March, but we’re all so much ready for it! We can’t help but think about which teams will play the best volleyball and which players will set themselves apart from the competition when the balls are finally allowed to start flying. It’s way too early, I know, but here are my best guesses about who will make it to the All-State Team in the class 4A next season.
Adelle Holland – Setter - Senior – Puyallup
Adelle Holland did a lot more for Puyallup in 2019 than coordinating the team’s offense, which she did masterfully by the way with 1,110 assists (9.7 per set). The 5’8” setter also helped the Vikings in several different ways as she added 44 kills, 37 aces, 40 blocks and 237 digs to her side during a season in which Puyallup made it to the State Championship. Her great play earned her an All-State team honorable mention and she could be up for more in her final high school season.
Hailey BrockwayHaileyBrockway6'0" | OHGraham-Kapowskin | 2023WA – Outside Hitter – Sophomore – Graham-Kapowsin
Graham-Kapowsin would certainly not have finished third at last year’s State Championship without Hailey BrockwayHaileyBrockway6'0" | OHGraham-Kapowskin | 2023WA – Outside Hitter – Sophomore – Graham-Kapowsin Graham-Kapowsin would certainly not have finished third at last year’s State Championship without Hailey BrockwayHaileyBrockway6'0" | OHGraham-Kapowskin | 2023WA. The six-foot outside hitter took the league by storm in her freshman and contributed decisively for the Eagles’ success with 472 kills, 40 blocks, 195 digs and 157 passes. An All-State first-team selection in 2019 and a member of prepdig.com’s class of 2023 watch list, she’s pretty much guaranteed the same honors next season, when her game is expected to improve even further. Kyleene Filimaua – Outside Hitter – Sophomore – North Creek The addition of Kyleene Filimaua’s well-polished all-around game was a blessing for North Creek as it helped to improve the team in several different aspects last season. Her six-foot presence obviously improved the Jaguars’ game at the net, but Filimaua, who already has a collegiate verbal commitment with Florida State to play indoor and beach, also changed the team’s level on defense. Her various contributions made of her an All-State first-team selection in her freshman season. Samaya MorinSamayaMorin6'1" | OHLake Stevens | 2021StateWA – Outside Hitter – Senior – Lake Stevens Samaya MorinSamayaMorin6'1" | OHLake Stevens | 2021StateWA was the heart of soul of Lake Stevens during their State Championship finals run in 2019. The 6’1” outside hitter, who will spend her collegiate career playing on the sand for Grand Canyon, was instrumental to the Vikings’ success last season as the All-State first-team member registered 322 kills, 47 aces, 228 digs and 212 passes to help her team compete for the state title. She ranks fourth on prepdig.com’s class of 2021 ranking. Sadie BaconSadieBacon6'2" | MHIssaquah | 2021StateWA – Middle-Blocker – Senior – Issaquah The state’s best-ranked prospect according to prepdig.com, Sadie BaconSadieBacon6'2" | MHIssaquah | 2021StateWA has played great volleyball for Issaquah in recent years. Last season, for example, the 6’2” middle-blocker was a rock for Eagles by tallying 226 kills, 31 aces, 175 blocks and 110 digs. She earned an All-State team honorable mention for that and could show even more in the final high school volleyball season. Karli TriKarliTri6'2" | MHLake Stevens | 2021StateWA – Middle-Blocker – Senior – Lake Stevens Another member of Lake Stevens’ team that finished second in the division last year, Karli TriKarliTri6'2" | MHLake Stevens | 2021StateWA is another returning All-State first team member for the Vikings. The 6’2” middle-blocker was very effective on her offensive actions at the net, registering 157 kills over the season, but also impacted the game in other ways with 51 blocks and 25 digs. Her efficiency made her the sixth-ranked player in the class of 2021 for prepdig.com. Isabella Moon – Libero/Defensive Specialist – Sophomore – North Creek Isabella Moon needed just one season of high school volleyball to show she belongs in the elite of the state. The 5’4” defender took leadership of North Creek’s defensive duties and helped the team finishing fifth at the State Championships, where she shone with 74 digs in just four matches. She was an All-State second team member on her first year with the Jaguars and could make yet another leap next season.
