High School Dish

HS Dish: Last Year’s Top 10 and 10 State Champions (July 30)

The Jags caused an uproar in the Texas Regional quarterfinal against Byron Nelson. Read about the 2019 version of both teams in this HS Dish!

With some states beginning their high school volleyball seasons within the next week or two, we’re feeling the push to jump right into it too because, ready or not, it’s coming!

If you are a high school coach who has not filled out our form for this season, please do so, here. It’s really valuable information we use throughout the season, whether or not you’re a top 100 ranked team or not!

In this edition of HS Dish, we take a look at the 10 teams who finished at the top of the 2018 year-end rankings as well as 10 more teams who won a State title in their respective state, but were not ranked in the National Top 10.

    Southlake Caroll will not miss a beat from last season. Six starters from Open division club teams, the remaining two starters from National division club teams. Natalie Glenn (Minnesota) and Anabelle Smith (Stanford) return. Setter Mabyn Thomas (likely USC or UCLA beach) replaces Kenzie Smith (TCU). Rest of the squad from Skyline and Madfrog A teams and/or a top 5 DFW ranked club team.

    Surprised there was no mention of Millennium (Goodyear AZ). They went 45-1, won the 5A State title, and took 3rd at Nike TOC. Also worth noting they had three players who played for Arizona Storm

    We just did the top 10 from last year’s end of season rankings (which Millenium just missed), plus 10 more from around the country. That’s only 20 schools! There will be more to come and this HS Dish doesn’t indicate this year’s pre-season rankings.

    Byron Nelson has the best kept secret in volleyball in Harding commit Skyler McKinnon hitting right side. Skyler would be one of the starting outsides for almost every other 6A team in Texas, she has a big arm and can get around a block. She doesn’t get the volume of sets, but she hit .301 for the 2018 high school season and had a 43.2% kill ratio, second highest among the pin hitters. She lead Madfrog 17 Black in kills and hitting percentage this spring as well.
