Hello PrepDig Oregon!

Since the 2022 Rankings were released, a lot has happened in our world, our country, and our State. However, one thing has remained the same: our love for the game. While competing and playing may look different than in years past athletes are still finding ways to get out and play.  

The class of 2022 has grown substantially with nine new additions to the rankings list. There was also quite a bit of movement, with a couple of players jumping up by more than twenty spots! 

Did you know only one player from the class of 2022 has committed to a school? College coaches have so much talent to choose from with this class! 

Make sure to check out the updated rankings list here.

Below are the top ten athletes from 2022:

She has made the AVCA Phenom List two years in a row. At 6’3”, she moves with ease, using her athleticism to be an impact attacker in the middle. She is quick in transition making herself available to her setters consistently. When given the ball she reaches high and swings fast, making her hard to defend.”

All of these skills are valuable in volleyball but definitely come in handy as a setter. A leftie, she often swings on the second ball, surprising the defenders on the other team.”
