3. Jordyn Poulter, 6-2 S, Eaglecrest (Centennial, Colorado), Front Range — Illinois

Poulter makes people better. A skilled setter who brings size and athleticism to the position, she trained with national team coach Karch Kiraly’s U23 team for three weeks last season. Without her, Eaglecrest’s high school team slumped to fifth place in league. She returned and the team not only got to state for the third time in her three years in the program, it finished third! That’s the kind of impact player Poulter is. Poulter has a great understanding of the game and knows how to run the offense. Most good setters are good in system but what separates Poulter is her ability out of system to get hitters in rhythm and her courage to set hitters from anywhere on the court.  She also packs quite a punch when she attacks and blocks like a college player already. Poulter is determined and measured in her competitiveness, and brings a steady and steely disposition which infects the teams she sets, making them very tough to beat.  She has played at the highest level in her age group in the world and has done more than hold her own, as she was voted “Best Setter” in 2013 while playing in Thailand with the USA Youth National Team and repeated that honor this past summer with the USA Junior National Team. A great leader, friend to all and coach on the floor, Poulter will come to Illinois ready to make an indelible mark on the program.

40. Haley McLaren, 6-3 OH, Grandview (Aurora, Colorado), Front Range — Oregon

One of the most complete players in the 2015 class,  McLaren can pass half the court, play tremendous floor defense, serve for points, blocks with a high I.Q. and determination and can flat out score.  And she does all of this while standing 6-3! There are very few tall players who can play the floor defense she plays as well as pass against the toughest servers club ball has to offer.  A shut down blocker on the right for a few years, McLaren, who has a long frame and quick feet, made the transition to the left this club season and showed many a slide attacker how good she is at that skill. McLaren has the athleticism and all-arournd skill set to play multiple positions at the collegiate level. It is scary to think how good she will be once her body fully matures and adds strength.  Committed to Oregon, McLaren is quiet by nature but has a competitive determination that burns deeply. She is drawing many comparisons to former Duck Alaina Bergsma, who was the 2012 AVCA National Player of the Year.  Folks in Eugene are excited to find out if, like Bergsma, McLaren can lead the Ducks to the National Championship game.

42. August Raskie, 6-0 S, Rampart (Colorado Springs, Colorado), Front Range – Oregon

Raskie has been described by her club coach, Jim Miret, as a “true setter hitter,” because she plays a complete game. Equal parts explosive and powerful and as smooth as they come, Raskie is an athletic set maker and skilled marksman from the right side. She sets with precision from a high point, can run a fast and sophisticated offense, and is strong enough to move the ball around at will.  As a southpaw, she has the ability to attack the ball at any time.  Raskie is a good defender and puts up a very good block for any player, let alone a setter.  Raskie brings a competitive fire to the court and always believes she can win. This will come in handy as she moves into the collegiate game at Oregon, where she will look to replace Shellsy Ashen and compliment Maggie Scott for the Ducks.

Additionally, Blayke Hranicka and Brogan Wallin from last year's FRVBC 17 Silver and now on 18 Black, were named in the 101-250 group although no specific ranking was given to the athletes in that group.


Alumna Laura Beach Leads the Nation

FRVBC Alumna and University of Wyoming sophomore Laura Beach currently leads the nation in hitting percentage at .585. The Cowgirls have won a school record 14 consecutive matches dating back to last season. Wyoming has also won 18-consecutive non-conference home matches dating back to 2012.

Congratulations Laura!
