With the holiday season near, we are singing Over the River (Missouri) and Through the Woods..about these Iowa and Nebraska’s pin hitters. The border battle continued on Sunday at the Prep Dig 250 Expo. Here is a look at some of the prospects I observed, as I analyzed players on Sunday:

Liv Anderson 5’11" Class of 2022 High School: Ankeny Centennial  Club: Iowa PowerPlex

Liv has a good reach and can make some really nice, smart shots all over the court. She is aggressive with a quick arm swing. She brought a lot of energy to the floor as well. During the wash drill I observed, she transitions well and gives her self room for a lot of different shots on the floor which makes her a smart and disciplined player. 

Kenzie Dean Class of 2024

Kenzie Dean 6’2" Class of 2024 High School: Dowling Catholic Club: Club Ignit Select

Kenize is young, but has a high ceiling! She has long levers and a quick arm. She loves to compete and has a hammer for a swing! Keep tabs on this young player as club season approaches!

She transitions well and reaches for high hands which benefits her against taller blockers. She registered 217 kills, 33 ace serves, 24 blocks and 178 digs for the Cardinals this past season. She also was a good leader on the floor as well!  Brianna LemkeBriannaLemke6'0" | MHMead | 2022StateNE 6’0" Class of 2022 High School: Mead Club: Nebraska One Brianna has long levers and is very athletic. She takes good shots as well and is very strong. She is able to terminate the first ball fairly effortlessly. Lemke hammered 329 kills with a .264 hitting percentage this past fall.  [player_tooltip player_id="58792" first="Brianna" last="Lemke"], 2022, OH, Mead. She also had 272 digs and an astonishing 55 ace serves in her junior campaign. She plays with a lot of confidence and was able to shake off errors easily. Such a fun player to watch from a small school!
