Several Ohio teams competed in Columbus over the President's Day weekend. The 16 American gold bracket featured four good teams and some solid talent from around the state. Buckeyefire 16 Crossfire defeated Borderline 16 Hawks to claim the title. NOVA 16 Gold earned third place. Here are five athletes that showcased their skills well and are establishing themselves as reliable prospects in the class of 2023.

Allana Appleby - 6'0 | MH | Buckeyefire 16 Crossfire
Appleby has elite level skills in the middle. She is athletic, physical, and uses her tools with good efficiency in all areas of the game. She elevates well at the net to get on the ball fast with her arm or to put a ton of pressure on opposing attackers from pin to pin when blocking. She has good control and platform skills when used in the back row and her length allows her to create good range in pursuit of the ball. The Shaker Heights product helped her team to an undefeated league season in 2020 and was named to the Lake Erie League 1st-team. She is one to keep an eye on as she progresses through her prep career.
