Sydney Schnichels Sydney Schnichels 6'3" | OH Wilmar | 2023 State MN - Willmar (MN) - Northern Lights - Committed To Minnesota

Ashley Mullen - Liberty (MO) - Dynasty - Committed to UCLA 

Ava Sarafa - Mercy (MI) - Michigan Elite - Committed to Kentucky 

Meghan Scholz Meghan Scholz 6'3" | MB Tomahawk | 2023 State WI - Tomahawk (WI) - Wisconsin Ice - Committed to DePaul
