It’s time to start digging into club season!

Teams are already in the mix for the new year and we are going to be looking at a lot of different teams from around the state in the weeks to come.

We start over at Legacy, where they produced another national champion in 2021, alongside with a No. 1 ranking at season’s end.

Here’s a look at their top squads for the 18’s and 17’s.

18-1 ADIDAS

Cari Bohm Cari Bohm 6'4" | MB Ann Arbor Skyline | 2022 State MI

The 2020 club season with filled with a lot of adversity for this squad. Coach Bryan Lindstrom is hoping this year’s squad can avoid the injury bug and reach its full potential after still scrapping its way to a top-25 spot nationally in 2021. It’s a loaded squad as one would expect.

Leading the way are some very strong middles in Serena Nyambio Serena Nyambio 6'2" | MB Country Day | 2022 State MI (Michigan), Cari Bohm Cari Bohm 6'4" | MB Ann Arbor Skyline | 2022 State MI (Illinois) and Elizabeth Adams Elizabeth Adams 6'2" | MB Clarkston | 2022 State MI (Connecticut). All standing 6’2” or taller, it gives Legacy a lot of size to work with offensive and defensively.

On the outside, Sydney Tomlak Sydney Tomlak 5'11" | OH Stoney Creek | 2022 State MI (Duke), Jada Divita Jada Divita 6'0" | OH Grosse Pointe South | 2022 State MI (Lipscomb), Cari Bohm Cari Bohm 6'4" | MB Ann Arbor Skyline | 2022 State MI [/caption] The 2020 club season with filled with a lot of adversity for this squad.

Their athleticism will compliment the middles very well. Nyla Muskovin Nyla Muskovin 6'0" | OH Country Day | 2022 State MI (Eckerd) is also joining the group this year, giving the team even another technically-sound hitting and defensive option. Karlee Stoll Karlee Stoll 5'7" | S Anchor Bay | 2022 State MI (Ferris State) and Lauren Lee Lauren Lee 5'9" | S Skyline | 2022 State MI (Hope) will handle the setting duties and be able to play with a  lot of speed to feed this deep bench of hitters. Defensively Jacoby Flynn Jacoby Flynn 5'9" | S Rochester Adams | 2022 State MI (Kent State) and Summer Jidas Summer Jidas 5'5" | DS/L Clarkston | 2022 State MI are very reliable veteran liberos that have been up against the best of the best in the state and throughout the country. 17-1 ADIDAS [player_tooltip player_id="66292" first="Rebecca" last="Apsey"] This squad was ranked tops in the nation in 2021 and expectations aren’t going to change much for them this year either. Coached by Jennifer Cottrill, this group has a lot of chemistry and not a weak spot in the lineup. They certainly will get everyone’s best in 2022, but should be ready to take their game to another level. Leading the way is Harper Murray Harper Murray 6'2" | OH Skyline | 2023 State MI (Nebraska), considered by many to be the top player in the Class of 2023 nationally. She’s going to be joined on the outside by Nina Horning Nina Horning 6'3" | OH Lake Orion | 2023 State MI (Cincinnati), an even-growing talent that has added a lot to her overall game in the last year. Rebecca Apsey Rebecca Apsey 6'1" | RS Groves | 2023 State MI has been a real spark plug for this squad the past two years and that shouldn’t change this year either. The team is also adding Kamryn Hunt, a 6’2” outside from Northview, Ohio. She played up an age group last year and can touch well over 10’. She added another dimension to this talented group of outsides. Abigail Reck Abigail Reck 6'2" | MB Northville | 2023 State MI had a real breakout season last club year and returns as an All-American middle that played outside during the prep season for Northville. Laurece Abraham Laurece Abraham 6'1" | MB Country Day | 2023 State MI (Yale) is also a very improved player in the last year that stands 6’2” and touches 10’4”. She will be a big asset this year. Olivia Gardner Olivia Gardner 6'2" | MB Dakota | 2023 State MI (Loyola Chicago) joins the squad as a middle this year. She’s a natural blocker that gives Legacy a lot of options. Erin Kline Erin Kline 6'2" | S Mercy | 2023 State MI (Mississippi State) has run the offense for this squad for years and is eager to showcase her talents after a quiet prep season. Kline has a great connection with this roster of hitters and has 6’2” size that is paired with a lot of athleticism. Eve Martin Eve Martin 5'11" | S Lakeland | 2023 State MI is a new addition that can play setter, outside or DS for Legacy. Her ability to shine anywhere on the court again gives this squad flexibility. Sarah Vellucci Sarah Vellucci 5'11" | OH Novi | 2023 State MI was the real unsung hero for this team last year, playing at an elite level as a libero despite being used primarily as an outside in prep season. She turned a lot of heads and now is part of a deep back row with Kaitlyn Hoffman Kaitlyn Hoffman 5'8" | DS/L Novi | 2023 State MI and Lexi Smith Lexi Smith 5'4" | DS/L Anchor Bay | 2023 State MI . All three are great athletes that play with tremendous poise and instincts.
