With the 2024 rankings out, a few middles made considerable contributions to their team’s success. Each one of these players not only made significant leaps in playing time, but the contributions offensively and defensively were impressive. Look for these five next year to be relied on as their team’s leading players.

 

55. Haley Yount Haley Yount 6'2" | MB Northwest | 2024 State MO -MB-Northwest

6’2 middle blocker came on strong her sophomore year and provided the Lions some much-needed offense and defense from the middle. Increased her kill total by 263, ending the year with 369 kills and 95 blocks. Excellent footwork to the pins and her length will continue to cause problems for hitters the next two years. 

 

57. Kayla Robertson Kayla Robertson 6'0" | MB St. Dominic | 2024 State MO -MB-St. Dominic

One kid will become a big-time player over the next two years for the Crusaders. Robertson is a long, athletic middle that closes to the pins and did not shy away from being a newbie and pounded home 292 kills and added 44 blocks to a Class 5 3rd place team. A 6’0 mobile middle has the power to back up her defense at the net and put-up solid numbers in her first year of varsity.

Bre Daniels Bre Daniels 5'10" | MB Liberty Mountain View | 2024 State MO -MB-Liberty Mountain View 5’10 middle for the Eagles relied on more this year, and she produced. The middle would lead her team in kills with 284 and blocks with 83. Not to be left off the back row, Daniels would also provide 232 digs.    61. Abby Kennedy Abby Kennedy 5'9" | MB Advance | 2024 State MO -MB-Advance As a first-year starter for the Hornets, the 5’9 middle showed signs of another star in the making for Advance. Abby ended her sophomore campaign with 240 kills and 156 digs. A smooth middle with a hammer provides her team with much-needed offense and defense.   67. Emily Strange Emily Strange 5'9" | MB Bunker | 2024 State MO -MB-Bunker 5’10 middle added a part to the Eagles team this year that has been missing from the program. A solid middle blocker that provided not just defense but some much-needed offense. She increased her offensive output by 130 kills to end with 194 on the year and 46 blocks. She was an essential part of the team that helped Bunker to its best finish in a decade.
