The HCIAL may be deemed one of the smaller conferences in New Jersey but that does not mean there is a lack of talent. Defensively, these ladies are at the top by how they are able to turn defense into an offense by racking up digs. Let's take a look at the top players at libero returning. 


Melanie Suarez (Kearny)

Suarez had a solid junior season for Kearny. She led the way for the squad with 261 digs. Suarez speed on the court was one of her best attributes as there was not a ball she could get too and help the team turn defense into offense.

Kimberly Romero (Memorial)

Romero was a focal point defensively for Memorial. Her ability to pass is what made her a solid libero. She put the team in the best position to be able to score with quality passes to the setter. She finished with 186 digs and 27 assists. Watch for her to show off her leadership skills as well this upcoming season.
