I think Walnut's gonna be down compared to last year. They'll still be a top 10 team in the state because of their OHs, but when Smith-Trondle went down against X, they fell apart. If Limoco is the setter from the start then it'll likely be better than what we saw because all of their hitters will be able to get used to him and find a groove, but Smith-Trondle was also so good as an offensive and defensive threat at the net and they're gonna really miss that. IMO, state is gonna come down to X and/or Moe; depends on what the format looks like.X will still be very good with a TON of depth. It will be interesting to see what lineup they settle on in the season
OHs - Meyer, Tressler, Berkemeier
MHs - Jones, Shields, Boyett, Bender
OPPs - Shields, Terrell, Pung
S - Berkemeier, Tran
L - Stewart, Krebs, Byrum
That's 14 guys that would see the court on every other team in the state IMO
Walnut will again be very relient on the OHs. I did not see Limoco on any club team roster, but the senior Wilkins is back at Attack. Both would be starters for Walnut.
OH - Wheatley, Tombragel
MH - Wilkins, ?
OPP - Moyer
S - Limoco?
L - Dinardo
