The talent level in the top part of this class is <<THISCLOSE>> and oh so good! Deciding who was number one was not an easy decision and could go to any of these players and will probably change multiple times before these young ladies graduate!

#1 Lauren Medeck Lauren Medeck 5'8" | OH Papillion-LaVista South | 2024 State NE (pictured above)- This time around the 5’11 outside hitter from Papillion-LaVista South gets the nod for the #1 spot. Having the most kills on a team that went 29-6 and a runner-up finish in the Class A State Tournament, pushed her to the top spot. Coach Katie Tarman commented on Lauren at the beginning of the season, “She is a fantastic kid and we are lucky to have her in our program. She is incredibly coachable and is quickly adapting to the speed of our game and the way our program operates. She is very physical and has tremendous body control at this young age.”

Medeck finished the season with 3.2 kills/set (307 season) and .6 blocks/set (56 season). Away from
