The Class of 2023 sure is courageous.

During the 2020 prep season, a number of sophomores have shown their fearlessness and athleticism while excelling in the back row for their respective teams.

Defensive play was a strong suit in this class, as plenty of 2023 players stood out on the court.

Ella McAllister, Marshall: McAllister was a key piece to a Marshall squad that recorded 33 wins during the season. She racked up 389 digs and 40 aces for the Redhawks. Her efforts garnered Third Team All-State honors in Division 2. McAllister is going to be the face of the Marshall volleyball team in the next couple of years.

Kalliann Cook, Birch Run: Cook was a standout freshman during the 2019 season and she followed it up with a great run during the 2020 season. Cook was named Honorable Mention All-State in Division 2 for the Panthers, a D2 quarterfinalist. Birch Run always knew it had a steady and confident defender to rely on in Cook. That allowed the team to consistently stay in-system and rack up wins.
