That seems really high, and it’s why you won’t find a player like Assumption’s junior middle blocker Rylee Rader on it. She leads the top-ranked Rockets with 305 kills and is hitting .558. That would place her third in the nation based on the current leaders in hitting percentage, but Rader didn’t qualify because she “only” has 498 attempts. What?
