Prep Dig Wisconsin was super excited to provide coverage on a showcase that was FULL of talent. That may have been one of the best groups of uncommitted prep volleyball players I have ever seen. We had prospects from metro areas across the state and the competitive rural programs.
Wisconsin has been firing on all cylinders to develop talent across the state. I was elated to be able to watch a lot of great players and assess as many recruits as I could. All athletes in attendance showed a wide variety of skills and interest in playing volleyball at the next level, no matter the level.

Rachel Mueller Rachel Mueller 5'9" | OH Oshkosh West | 2021 State WI – 5’9 – Pin Hitter – Oshkosh West – FC Elite I, for one, hope Mueller can get an amazing senior season, even if it is in the Spring. She has the ability to swing with power and range, and when she is in the air, she creates a torque that helps her create heavy pace on the ball. Mueller’s skills as a six-rotation athlete improve every time I see her play. Her ball control and defense are solid and help her to remain an offensive threat from anywhere on the court. Mueller led the Wildcats in kills during the 2019 season and is primed to do the same in the spring of 2021.

She is the complete package as an outside hitter. She does a good job reading, can pass and defend with a solid platform, and pursues the ball in play. Mullins can also establish dominance at the net. She is quick and fluid in her footwork. which allows her to boost her jump and utilize an electric swing. Olivia Paukner Olivia Paukner 5'11" | MB Sauk Prairie | 2022 State WI – 5’11 – Middle Blocker – Sauk Prairie - Capital Paukner’s presence and movement as a middle is hard not to notice. She is really active and has height along with quickness in her lateral movement and when transitioning off the net. Paukner recognizes the ball in transition and does a great job creating space with her setter. She runs a solid slide route, and she takes a swing using the entire court. Paukner’s point production was a big part of the Eagles’ deep post-season run. #66 Sophie McCormick Photo Credit: Breit Nelson Sienna Roling Sienna Roling 6'1" | OH Sun Prairie | 2022 State WI – 6’0 – Pin Hitter – Sun Prairie - Capital Roling takes a big approach, high contact, and swing. She creates a low flat serve and has made a lot of progress over the fall. Her composure is a big reason why she is considered a rising stock. Roling plays with fortitude and foresight that streamlines her game. She demonstrates balance for good first-step movement in serve-receive and defense, which allows her to increase her range. Sophie McCormick – 6’0 – Pin Hitter – Kettle Moraine - Motion McCormick kicked into high gear this year, and it is a great indication of her potential to be a force any time she takes the court. With height and agility, she makes big plays on both sides of the ball. McCormick has solid footwork, is fluid in her movements, has a high contact combined with a strong swing to help her generate a lot of points.
