Size alone doesn’t guarantee a spot among the top athletes in one’s class, but it does help.  Here are newcomers to our updated class rankings who add talent and height to the list.  While some have been previously noted here, they have moved up our list.

class of 2023

Madeline Knutson Madeline Knutson 6'1" | MB Maplie | 2023 State MN - The 6’1’’ middle is a straight all-star in the making.  She can really hammer it and is a huge wall on the right side.  Every coach in the Northwest Suburban conference knows how difficult it is to hit against this elite blocker.

Kiylah Franke Kiylah Franke 5'10" | S Burnsville | 2023 State MN - Kilyah is on trend as a tall setter.  At 5’10’’ she can execute a 5-1 and likes to keep the defenders honest with offense.  She has great range from across the court.

Naomi Romso Naomi Romso 6'0" | MB Simley | 2023 State MN -Take note of Naomi; she is a player with endless potential. She is on a highly competitive Northern Lights 16-2’s this year and is one who could easily move up the rankings as she develops her variety of hits and strength.


Class of 2024

Olivia Swenson Olivia Swenson 6'2" | OH Wayzata | 2024 State MN - Olivia has secured her position as the second recruit
