Only a couple more "Next Five" series articles for the state of Indiana, and we’re talking about pin attackers today. It just so happens that we’re only talking about outsides in this edition, but some could probably double as a right side as well.

Ava Utterback Ava Utterback 5'10" | OH Plainfield | 2024 State IN , 5-10, OH, Circle City 15 Purple

A primary-passing six-rotation outside that can double as a right side from time to time because of her size is exactly what you get from Miss Utterback. Her whip of an arm, smooth athleticism, and natural volleyball ability will carry her far, and she’s already seen early club success for Circle’s 15-1 this spring. Currently jump touching at 9-7, I’m hoping she can make it to ten feet by the end of her sophomore season at Plainfield. Stay tuned.

Sophie Ledbetter Sophie Ledbetter 5'9" | OH Hamilton Southeastern | 2024 State IN , 5-9, OH, Academy 15 Elite Venom

Although her attack touch isn’t quite as high as Ava’s, Sophie’s background as a defensive wizard looks to be more polished than the Plainfield product listed above. She doubles as a softball stud as well, and excels in both. She’s top 50 on our list, and top 100 in the Indy Star softball list for this class
