Give me a break. Get off the PC train.As a coach and parent who knows most of these boys pretty well, I am disappointed in this last post. All of the boys listed in these posts are good hardworking kids. In particular, Bowling and Topp are incredible athletes who have the potential to take over games with their play at the net. I am sure they both - and the comment about SC setter is juvenile and heartless.
If West. South added the setter from North.. They could challenge Darby.
Look at Pick North.. Who else do they have? They don't. The best option is to train a setter to grow the ball to Clark and have him pass half the court.. That's their best option.
Topp is solid, not great though. He can take over games, but last year they could lean on him and Spolstra.. Will be interesting what it looks like with just Topp hitting as the primary.
Agree with the idea about Evan. He was good, but easily forced action through him. Melsop was a stud and should've been utilized so much more. Hard to find an athletic middle who is 6'6" and touches over 11'. Also he could play. Hopson is solid, and they return their setter.
Alter has the best coaching in the state IMO. They take it to another level com tournament time almost every year.
DeSales.. Not so much. Forced too much action through Evan, when they had other talented guys who could put the ball down(Hopson and Melsop). Also didn't capitalize on the talent in 2014.
Any idea of who will the best setter-hitter combos throughout the state?
.What will starting lineups look like for the top teams? I can start some if others want to try to fill in the blanks for me
S - Mallot (Attack 18-1)
OH - Hilvert (Attack 18-1)
OH - Koenig (Attack-18-2), Conway (Thunder 17-1)
MH - Weebolt (Attack 18-2)
MH - Whitte (Attack 17-2)
RS - Luebbe (Attack 18-1)
L - OConner (Attack 18-1)
Other options would include:
Stacklin MH (Attack 18-3)
Klusman S/Opp (Attack 17-2)
Schatzman MH (Attack 16-1)
Albers OH (Attack 16-1)
Duke L/DS (Attack 18-2)
Scheiner L/DS (Thunder 17-1)
They could possibly run a 6-2 if Tierney chooses to with Mallot and Klusman, where Klusman would hit when in front row, but we will see. At this time, Mallot has the team in his hands.
