With the season now in full swing, here are some of the top hitter performances.

 

Vanessa Polk Vanessa Polk 6'2" | MB John Burroughs | 2022 State MO -Burroughs

The Pepperdine recruit started the 2021 season on fire. She helped her team win the Visitation tourney putting down 76 kills and 13 blocks to win the tourney.  Vanessa is a strong presence in the middle for Burroughs, but her movement and aggressive blocking are what I like about Polk. In the championship final against a good Parkway Central team, she hammered 20 kills and put up two blocks for the 2-1 win. 

 

Mercedes Browder-Parkway Central

Mercedes started off her weekend with a 2nd place finish to Burroughs at the Visitation tourney but not without making some noise of her own.  In the finals, she would hit .462% with 19 kills.  The outside hitter has a strong swing and looks to flatten the ball every time she gets the ball.   Already 13 kills away from topping last year’s kill total in a short season and looking to make the most of her last year. 

 

Kennedy Lane Kennedy Lane 5'9" | OH St. Pius X | 2022 State MO -St. Pius X (Festus)

It started like last year ended for Kennedy with 51 kills to start the season. 5’10
