On Nov. 19, Vista Murrieta freshman Claire Little delivered a career-high 22 kills in the California Interscholastic Federation Southern California Regional Division I final versus La Costa Canyon, a five-set win.  Three days later, the 6-2 outside hitter obliterated her career best with 30 kills – a record for a freshman in a California state final – as the Broncos captured their first California state title in their first championship appearance, a four-set win over Campolindo.

When you do something in California that no freshman has ever done before, and it results in a state title, you make a statement befitting PrepVolleyball.com’s 2019 National Freshman of the Year!
