Sometimes there are players who stand out and you know they have that unique something that draws you back to their courts.  It makes them identifiable as one of the best you have seen at the tournament.  Sometimes their team did a lot of winning, and sometimes they were in tight battles the whole day.  Here are some of the best all-around players I saw last weekend at the Prep Dig Quad Cities Clash. 

#8 Avery PennekampAveryPennekamp5'10" | OHMcFarland | 2022StateWI – 2022 – 5’10 – Outside Hitter – McFarland – Balance 17’s (WI) 

Pennekamp has a lot of power.  She’s always been a solid hitter, but she has developed into a big power swing from the pin.  Pennekamp is now just a point-scoring machine.  This is really impressive, considering McFarland did not have a fall season.   

#9 Grace Maschmann – 2022 – 5’6 - Setter – St. Bede - Lions Starved Rock 17Red 

Maschmann is a really strong defensive player.  She shows tons of hustle and gets to the ball before other defenders even think about moving.  Maschmann embodies the idea of leading by action. She is the type of player you just don’t take out of the game.  

#19 Isa Swiatkowski – 2024
