The long club season gives us the liberty to jump around the map and spotlight as many teams as possible. We’re going to keep doing that today with Premier Nebraska 18 Black.

My desire to spotlight this team was spurred forward by the opportunity to see them live at the Premier Showcase last weekend. 18 Black is also looking to punch an early ticket to Nationals at this weekend’s MLK Tournament in Kansas City.

With that in mind, let’s get you primed with some players to watch from Premier 18 Black.


Multi-Skill Athletes

In the team’s first live action of the season last weekend, 18 Black demonstrated the versatility that permeates their roster.

Laci Abendroth Laci Abendroth 6'1" | MB Millard South | 2022 State NE is a good example here. She is widely known for her ability to shut down opposing attackers in the middle, but she showed in the 2022 opener that she can take some solid swings at opposite, too.

Another player who fits in this category is Marisa Lootens Marisa Lootens 5'10" | OH Millard North | 2022 State NE . The Wisconsin-Parkside commit can do just about everything; she’s your classic six-rotation setter-opposite who is equally proficient in attacking and dishing the ball. Jayna Hope Jayna Hope 5'6" | S Bellevue West | 2022 State NE is a player on this
