Sometimes a player just does something and makes you go “wow”.  It doesn’t take you long to see that she has that “it” factor.  This player can be identified as one of the best in the gym almost immediately.  These players can be found in any pool and any bracket.  Here are some of the best I saw at the Prep Dig Gauntlet.

Aida Shadewald Aida Shadewald 5'10" | OH Sauk Prairie | 2022 State WI – 2022 – 5’10 – Outside Hitter – Sauk Prairie – Madison United 17 Red – Committed to Wright State

Shadewald is an explosive six-rotation outside hitter.  She is the go-to hitter for Madison and super dependable, so it is no wonder she is committed to play in the Horizon League in 2022.  Shadewald is athletic, dynamic, and a leader by action.

Kara Schmit Kara Schmit 5'8" | OH DSHA | 2022 State WI – 2022 – 5’8 – Outside Hitter – DSHA – Milwaukee Sting 17 White

I love Schmit’s explosive power and her speed! She makes smart shots, as well as being able to swing across her body to nail the deep line.  Schmit also has a deadly cross court serve that is sure to take teams out-of-system.
