Yesterday, we talked about all four teams remaining in class 4A and the players that got them there. Today, it’s 3A’s turn to show off what they are and how they got there. 

West Lafayette (28-2)

The Red Devils’ record is impressive, but what’s more impressive to me is the following: of their two losses, both are to 4A squads, and one is in the final four themselves, in the form of McCutcheon. Not bad, considering I hadn’t even considered them in my top ten back in August. WL defeated New Prairie in four LONG sets, and what’s really amazing is that they used exactly ZERO substitutions. The seven they have, six plus the ’bro, are what they’re coming with, and they’re leaning heavily on pin attackers  Tori Woods Tori Woods 6'0" | OH West Lafayette | 2022 State IN (’22, 5-10 OH, Texas Women’s University commit) and  Rachel Williams Rachel Williams 5'7" | OH West Lafayette | 2023 State IN (’23, 5-7 OH). The two combined for 57 kills and 32 digs in their regional final, and will be called upon again to do everything six-rotation passers are supposed to do, and then some.

Bellmont (29-5)

The Braves have already had a pretty tough playoff run themselves. Here’s the list of teams they’ve beaten, in order, this postseason: Heritage (26-6),
