A repeat performer on first-team All-Area, Tweet -- perhaps more than any other single player -- helped transform the Dragons from average to outstanding over the last two seasons. AHS participated in the Section 3A championship game during her junior and senior campaigns, and Tweet showed the way through her setting, digging and all-round sterling play. Her floor awareness, coupled with her cool optimism, helped the Dragons soar.

Alaina Wolff

Senior outside hitter

Jackson County Central

A great leader with great fire and versatility, Wolff is making her third appearance on first-team All-Area. She’s a three-time All-State honorable mention selection. “She’s just so fundamentally sound, and definitely has the heart and passion for the game of volleyball,” said coach Deidre Wierson about the 5-6 dynamo. Secured 307 kills and 248 digs in 2019-20. She’s accumulated 1,051 kills and 1,059 digs in her career.

Sadie Voss

Sophomore outside hitter

Jackson County Central

Hard to believe Voss is only a sophomore. She is a three-year starter who owns an exceptional power swing, and her desire to succeed has guaranteed that she will move to any position on the floor to help the team. This fall, the 5-8 outside hitter served at 88 percent with 78 aces. She had 321 kills and 209 digs. “She is always bringing so much energy and that will-to-win attitude to the game,” said Coach Wierson.

Katelyn Nichols

Senior middle hitter

Windom Area

Nichols is such a talented and versatile person, she even knows how to juggle. On the volleyball court, she’s outstanding in many areas. She led her team with 388 kills and 102 solo blocks in her senior season as the Eagles’ middle hitter. Blessed with a natural ability to read opposing hitters at the net, her strong jumping ability and quick wrist snap made her very difficult to defend. She racked up 766 kills and 313 blocks in her career.

Senior right hitter

The Eagles were very fortunate to have two hitters of the caliber of Nichols and Hauge, the latter who contributed 296 kills, 47 service aces and 56 solo blocks this past season. Head coach Crystal Fast calls Hauge one of the hardest workers she’s ever coached. Constantly straining to improve, the senior was always willing to do whatever it took to help her team. For her career, she had 98 service aces, 457 kills and 98 solo blocks.

Jazlynn Prins

Senior outside hitter

Southwest Christian

The Eagles struggled as a team for most of the 2019 season, but through it all Prins continued to exhibit her exceptional abilities. For the last three seasons, she led the team in kills, digs and serving percentage. As a senior, she logged in with 194 kills, 228 digs and a 96.5 serving percentage. Also an outstanding basketball player, Prins has annually demonstrated that she’s a natural leader and top-flite athlete.
