There will be a ton of talent on display at the Shootout at Capitol Sports Center in Plainfield, Indiana on Sunday. Here’s my preview of Circle’s 16 Purple and Academy’s 16 Yeti.

CIRCLE CITY 16 PURPLE

The 1s team at Circle for the class of ’24 is impressive, led by setter  Emery Moore Emery Moore 5'10" | S North Central | 2024 State IN (’24, 5-10 S, North Central). She’ll be running a 5-1 and, barring anything unforeseen, should have a ton of weapons at her disposal. For me, the primary attacker on this squad is  Ava Utterback Ava Utterback 5'10" | OH Plainfield | 2024 State IN (’24, 6-0 OH, Plainfield), who is very close to attacking at ten feet, if not there already. There will be plenty of options for the other left pin attacker, starting with  Sophia Mayo Sophia Mayo 6'0" | OH Perry Meridian | 2024 State IN (’24, 6-2 OH, Perry Meridian), who hits a heavy ball and terminates at will. To the right pin we go, where  Alexis Maesch Alexis Maesch 5'10" | RS Avon | 2024 State IN (’24, 5-11 S/RS, Avon) can alternate between hammering balls and setting them. My early season guess for the middles are  Scarlett Kimbrell Scarlett Kimbrell 6'0" | MB Franklin Community | 2024 State IN (’24, 6-0 MB, Franklin Community) and  Caroline Frost Caroline Frost 5'11" | MB Columbus East | 2024 State IN (’24, 6-1 MB, Columbus East). Scarlett is a multi sport stud whose basketball team is currently in the top five in the state. She’s exceptional
