Setter Madelynn Kreider (MI) has good ball control and places the ball well for her hitters. is a pin hitter with a huge vertical and a ton of potential to earn points for this team and lefty right side Madison York has a lot of height and a good snap on the ball. She was a go-to hitter at the Prep Dig Resolution tournament and will likely continue to be throughout the season.
