Josie Newcom Josie Newcom OH Daviess County | 2023 State KY - A 5’11 junior outside hitter from Daviess County, Josie Newcom Josie Newcom OH Daviess County | 2023 State KY , was for sure the MVP of the match. Her vision on the outside allows her to perform at such a high level. She knows where the block is at all times, and as an outside, that’s critical for success. Josie knows when to tool the block, tip in the middle of the floor, or hit into the seam and having those shots makes her a strong attacker but even more hard to defend for the opposing team. Her numbers just prove her talent. Newcom had 21 total kills in just 3 sets and added 9 digs with 2 service aces. Keep watching out for this stud on The Lady Panthers squad.
