Enticing Class A matchups became a theme of my recent midweek road trips. In case you missed it, I’ve already done a breakdown on another huge Class A contest that went down on Tuesday night.

On Thursday night, though, the spotlight was focused in the Elkhorn South gym for the Storm’s battle with Papillion-La Vista. With both teams featuring an abundance of talented athletes, it was the home team that came out with a convincing victory, 3-0.

Beyond the final score, several players stood out for their stellar individual performances. Today’s feature explores two of the big themes from the match, including the names that you need to know from this high-level duel.


Offense from a Crew of College Commits

Much of the mystique around this match was due to the talented bunch of players on both sides who have already made their collegiate pledges. Suffice it to say, these committed athletes delivered on Thursday.

Rylee Gray, the 2021 middle blocker who’s headed to Nebraska, was the focal point of the Storm’s offense. That’s nothing new. She stretches the court so well with her powerful swings from in front of the setter or behind on the slide.
