We are back at another run through of looking into some of the state's rising Libero group and the talents that they are currently bringing to the table when they step foot out onto the court. These athletes are not only some of the best liberos when it comes to their rankings, but I also take into the consideration of the split talents they share between their fundamental training and foundational training.


Kylie Martin- Illiana Christian High School 

Martin is a name that I am starting to become rather familiar with when it comes to the performance that she puts on when she steps out onto the court and brings that ball alive. Martin is without a doubt a rising elite athlete who has managed and continues to manage to make herself a stat leader. It shows in Martin's performances that she is a very diverse player on the court. This previous week, Martin has managed to snatch the 1st place ranking in Illinois for Digs, with 231 digs this season. Martin averages roughly 5.9 digs per set and she is only going to increase that number with it only being early in the season.
