In case you missed the series premiere, we’re revisiting some of Iowa’s best stat machines from last year’s 2020 season. Schools from different regions, classes, and conferences are well represented at the top of the stat sheet. We’ll continue to see that throughout this feature.

With the 2022s covered, it’s time for the rising juniors!


Madelyn Norton Madelyn Norton 5'8" | S Dike-New Hartford | 2023 State IA - 5’9 S/RS - Dike-New Hartford

Norton’s place near the top of Iowa’s 2020 assists leaderboard is indicative of how much she can contribute to a team. She’s an aggressive lefty setter who racks up kills in addition to dishing consistent, hittable balls to her teammates. After a strong showing with Six Pack earlier this spring, Norton should continue to put up big numbers for Dike-New Hartford.



Ellie Anderson Ellie Anderson 5'11" | OH South Hardin | 2023 State IA - 5’11 OH - South Hardin

Among 2023s, Anderson was Iowa’s "kills champion." Her 405 terminations last fall helped lift South Hardin to a great showing in the 2020 season, and this rising junior outside hitter is looking for more. Don’t be surprised if she puts up even better totals in 2021.
