In Division 2, defenses should provide a great mix of skill and length this season.

Some teams will be led by technique and execution, while others will make opponents have to hit through a brick wall.

Here’s a look at five teams in D2 that should be among the best defensively.

Notre Dame Prep

A veteran Notre Dame Prep team graduated its libero, yet still could be the top defensive team in Division 2. The Irish have had a wealth of talent in the back row over the years and that will be no different in 2021. Josie Bloom Josie Bloom 5'6" | DS/L Notre Dame Prep | 2022 State MI has a lot of varsity experience and can finally sport the libero jersey on a consistent basis for the Irish. She’s got all the tools to be the top libero in the state. Allison Berent Allison Berent 5'6" | DS/L Notre Dame Prep | 2023 State MI will likely see an expanded role in her junior season as a DS as well. Aly Borellis has proven to be impactful everywhere on the floor and Bianca Giglio Bianca Giglio 5'10" | RS Notre Dame Prep | 2022 State MI is an improving passer that could really shine this season. NDP lacks size for blocking, which will be a challenge, but their passing will be as good as anyone’s.
