As an outsider to the Kansas City area (although I love to visit Kansas City), I was enamored with the wealth of talent coming from KC clubs to the Northern Lights Qualifier.  For those from KC, they’ve always known about the top players in the country from the likes of Jenna Gray and Audriana Fitzmorris who won national titles at Stanford to most recently Madison Lilley with Kentucky.  Volleyball legends where most of these athletes who competed this past weekend grew up idolizing.  For these 16-year-olds who competed in this weekend’s Northern Lights Qualifier in Omaha, they are the next generation of legends to come from the Kansas City area.  Their story is just getting started.  I don’t have previous ties to any KC clubs or high schools, there are no alliances that I’m holding on to.  All I know is that these athletes can play, and Kansas City can continue to claim some of the top volleyball athletes in the country.
