    Since we now know our 2013 class, lets see what will get for 2014. I just found one; Alexis Conaway from MOC-Floyd Valley is a 6' outside. And I think she was recently named the Iowa Gatorade Player of the year....way to keep the in-state talent

    Thanks for the link. Another name in the article caught my eye? Mt. Vernon libero Marissa Stark, the sister of Ali Stark who plays for Illinois. Since she's a senior, Doesn't look like an ISU recruit, but with Hahn graduating next year, and no DS/L in the 2013 class, I would think a back row player woul be a priority in the 2014 class. Not that the cupboard will be bare with Caitlin Nolan a highly rated libero in her own right, but I don't know if Bria Rassmussen and/or Taylor Goetz will step in.

    Highly doubtful on Goetz. Not sure about Bria? I would imagine we'd go after a high-ranking libero, and would have a great chance after Mass and Hahn. Either Joe or Christy had talked about wanting great liberos to think of ISU as a libero school and want to come here.

    I saw that she was Gatorade IA POY and only a Jr., was hoping she'd come here - look at those stats!

    Conaway recorded 489 kills, 257 digs, 79 blocks and 51 service aces while posting a hitting percentage of .435.:jiggy:
    She can block, yay!

    Looks like the beginnings of another great recruiting class!

    Conaway just put up a double-double (17 pts, 11 reb) in MOC-FV's 51-30 state quarterfinal win over Mid-Prairie.

    She's 3rd in Class 3A in scoring (18+ ppg) and also averages just under 8 rpg.

    Conaway is the 2013 Drake Relays high jump champ (5'8"). 2nd place was 5'5".

    Mikaela Foecke, a sophomore from West Point, Iowa, just committed to Nebraska. She plays at Holy Trinity in Fort Madison.

    Hate to see a top-notch in-state player leave the state to play somewhere else. She is 6-3 and had offers from us, Iowa and Minnesota as well.

    :)

    I've seen Marissa Stark play a few times and Ali really was on a different level than her sister. I don't consider Marissa to be a D1 player, but who knows.

    Conaway won the 3A high jump tonight and finished 3rd in the 400.

    She also anchored them to the state championship in the 4X400, and anchored the 4X200 to a 3rd place finish. Given the basketball numbers, she played softball well, too. Super athlete. I'm really excited to see how she can develop as a volleyball player for us.

    Sounds like a Hannah Wilms clone.

    sounds like exactly the type of player CJL has said she wants to go after. Not necessarily the current high school vball stars, but extremely athletic and able to be trained.

    She may be only 5'8" but it appears from the picture she can jump. Looks to have a good all -around including being one of the toughest servers in the state. Even if Jenelle is the setter her first couple of years, she may be Caitlin Mahoney.

    Good to see we're getting some pretty good in-state girls.

    Looks like we have a commitment from Branen Berta from Cherokee Trail, CO. A 5-7 libero.
