Kennedy Louisell Kennedy Louisell 5'10" | OH Forest Hills Northern | 2023 State MI , OH Forest Hills Northern/FaR Out Nobody made a bigger jump in the rankings than Louisell. She went from being unranked all the way up to No. 20. The 5’11” outside has great technique and is able to instinctively make the necessary plays. She is growing in confidence, and that is a big reason for her rankings jump. Louisell has really raised her game. Kennedy Arp Kennedy Arp 6'0" | MB South Christian | 2023 State MI , OH/MB South Christian/FaR Out Arp really made a big jump in the rankings as well, going from 32nd to 21st. Arp really has been able to raise her game during the club season, moving up to play for FaR Out 18 Black alongside some of the top players in the state. An athletic hitter that can stand out in the middle or the outside, Arp has a very high ceiling as she becomes more comfortable at each position. Erin Madigan Erin Madigan 6'1" | S Dakota | 2023 State MI , S Dakota/Legacy Madigan moved from 35th to 30th in our rankings update. This 6-foot setter is long at the net and can make a lot of plays that others at her position can’t. Madigan brings the best out of her hitters and can play aggressively at the net, herself. As she continues to develop her leadership skills and add more tools to her toolbox, Madigan is going to be a top setter in the state.
