Carly Nolan, sr.. OH - Crystal Lake South

Nolan was a key piece in South’s run to the IHSA Class 4A state finals last year, where the Gators finished fourth. Her 385 kills were a team best, and she added 266 digs, 45 blocks and 52 aces. She is committed to University of Cincinnati.  

Abby Schebel, sr., OH - Cary-Grove

Schebel led a relatively young C-G team that made a push for an FVC Valley Division title before falling short. Schebel finished the year with 27 aces, 244 kills and 49 blocks.

Cassy Sivesind, sr., S - Crystal Lake South

Sivesind finished 2013 with 869 assists, 30 blocks, 24 aces and 108 digs. She also played an integral role in South’s fourth-place finish in the IHSA Class 4A state finals, and she helped South win the FVC Valley Division title as well as regional, sectional and supersectional crowns.

Ali Witt, sr., MH - Prairie Ridge

Witt became a force at the net for the Wolves and played a big role in their push toward an FVC Valley Division title. Look for her to continue her dominance as Prairie Ridge moves back to the FVC Fox Division. Witt finished 2013 with 152 kills, .348 hitting efficiency and 84 blocks.
