First team

Carly Cappello, Bishop Noll

Year: Junior.

Position: Outside hitter.

Stats: 1149-1258 (564 kills), 307-329 serving (41 aces), 50 blocks (17 solos), 355 digs.

Analysis: On the North junior all-star team, Cappello was a huge asset to the state runner-up Warriors this season. She has big-game experience and knows when to let others shine. That Noll has her skill, jumps and leadership for another season should worry opponents.

Noelle Eveland, Valparaiso

Year: Senior.

Position: Outside hitter.

Stats: 301 kills, 391 digs, 19 aces, 19 blocks.

Analysis: Eveland made quite the impression in her two years at Valparaiso. As a senior, the Michigan Tech commit led the Vikings in kills and digs while being named Academic All-State.

Shannon Farrell, Munster

Year: Senior.

Position: Outside hitter.

Stats: 450-482 passing, 417-438 serving (64 aces), 671-762 hitting (304 kills), 29 blocks, 474 digs.

Analysis: The senior picked up every set and pass made to her, and did it with aplomb. As well as a tough stop up front, she was easy to put in the back row as her determination and drive made her an asset everywhere on the court.

Tori Gardenhire, Lake Central

Year: Junior.

Position: Outside hitter.

Stats: 213 kills, 39 aces, 101 blocks.

Analysis: A member of the all-conference team, Gardenhire helped make the Indians the Duneland Athletic Conference champs. She can make herself taller than her frame with a jump-out-of-the-gym athleticism that is tough to stop.

Asya Hobbs, Bishop Noll

Year: Senior.

Position: Middle hitter.

Stats: 894-1017 hitting (395 kills), 343-405 serving (62 aces), 281 blocks (205 solo), 260 digs.

Analysis: Hobbs led the area and the state in blocks, showing how much a dedicated offseason can pay dividends. She was key to the Warriors in their trip to the Class 2A state finals as she was tough to block around.

Elizabeth Kloos, Munster

Year: Senior.

Position: Middle hitter.

Stats: 367-392 serving (37 aces), 564-609 hitting (245 kills), 151 digs, 120 blocks.

Analysis: The quintessential middle hitter, Kloos improved her game this season for the Northwest Crossroads Conference title holders. She led a tough line up front for the Mustangs, and couldn't be stopped as a hitter.

Abby Kvachkoff, Crown Point

Year: Senior.

Position: Middle hitter.

Stats: 219 kills, 123 blocks (48 solos), 52 digs.

Analysis: On the North Class 3A/4A all-star team and the DAC all-conference team, Kvachkoff made the perfect all-around player for the Bulldogs. Her height and tenacity were tough to defend, and she has an eye for finding the ball.

Alyssa Kvarta, Crown Point

Year: Junior.

Position: Setter.

Stats: 319-378 serving (59 aces), 199 kills, 922 assists, 116 blocks (26 solo), 282 digs.

Analysis: That Crown Point has another year with the Times Player of the Year should have opponents concerned. She's a total team player, as well as the complete setter package. She doesn't want to stop learning, and made a front-line impact despite not taking as many hits this season as she has in the past.

Madeline Johnson, Washington Township

Class: Senior.

Position: Outside hitter.

Stats: 372 kills, 71 blocks.

Analysis: Changing positions did nothing to slow Johnson this season as the senior moved to the outside and helped lead the Senators to their second regional title in school history.

Ally Rohn, Calumet Christian

Year: Junior.

Position: Outside hitter.

Stats: 1,450-1,531 hitting (711 kills), 376-403 serving (77 aces), 88 blocks (40 solo), 250 digs.

Analysis: The junior led her team in nearly every statistical category, and in areas she didn't, she was second. She is a vital part of the program that surprises a few IHSAA teams every year before making a run through national tournaments.

Kellie Wojciechowski, Andrean

Year: Senior.

Position: Outside hitter.

Stats: 343 kills, 211 digs.

Analysis: The senior was integral to a prolific front line and tough to defend. Her hops and leadership were vital to Andrean's success this season.
