Even though this is a holiday weekend, volleyball doesn’t stop, as matches are still scheduled through Saturday. With that being said, here are our top five teams from this past week in 4A and the players that led them.

#5: Hamilton Southeastern (7-2)

After two season-opening losses to tough 4A #3 McCutcheon and Carmel, the Royals have run off seven straight, with no end in sight. They dealt Floyd Central their first loss, knocked off power Providence, and most recently swept Sacred Heart, a perennial power from Kentucky. They have both  Avery Hobson Avery Hobson 5'11" | OH Hamilton Southeastern | 2023 State IN (’23, 5-11 OH) and  Lauren Harden Lauren Harden 6'2" | OH Hamilton Southeastern | 2024 State IN (’24, 6-3 OH) to thank for their success. The two-headed monster on the left pin constantly and consistently put balls away, and the two account for nearly seven points per set. Where Avery uses her strength to power off of and through blocks, Lauren goes over them.

#4: Roncalli (14-2)

Other than minor blips against Munster and Columbus East, both excellent programs in their own right, the (other) Royals have run roughshod over their schedule, including a win over defending 4A champ Yorktown. Leading the way offensively is  Olivia Murphy Olivia Murphy 6'0" | OH Roncalli | 2022 State IN (’22, 6-0 OH), who can take over a match
