Prep volleyball

Optimist Volleyball
The annual Optimist Volleyball series for North Dakota has been set for June 13 and June 14.
A change was made this season regarding how teams are selected.
At the state coaches meeting last November, the coaches decided to use a new team selection process currently used in several other states.
This process is designed to make the teams as equitable as possible while keeping the number of Class A and Class B players evenly distributed on each team. This results in a Red Team and a Blue team (replacing the East/West process of the past). Players are placed on teams by position rather than location of their high school in the state.
To qualify to coach the All Star Series, the highest finishing Class A and Class B coach from the east and from the west are eligible. If they decline, the next highest finishing coach in that division is offered the opportunity to coach. This year the All Star coaches were assigned to teams by random draw.
The games will be played June 13 at Fargo Shanley and June 14 at Bismarck High.

Red Team
Danielle Hagler, North Star; Paige McAllister, Shanley; Emily Skalicky, Fargo North; Eden Olson, Our Redeemer’s; Mia Hinsz, Bismarck High; Hannah Hoedl, Shanley; Teegan Scherr, Linton-HMB; Nadia Chwialkowski, West Fargo; Emma Lucas, Northern Cass; Sydney Upton, Minot Ryan; Riley Hauff, Drake-Anamoose; Hunter Petersen, Jamestown
Coaches – Kelsey Gibbons, West Fargo; Tim Wallstrum, Kenmare

Blue Team
Macy Fridgen, Bismarck Century; Emily Degree, Des Lacs-Burlington; Alissa Haugland, Divide County; Olivia Vetter, Shanley; Katie Trumbauer, Jamestown; Abby Cox, Oakes; Piper Harris, Mandan; Bailey Munson, Thompson; Ava Wild, Fargo Davies; JayCee Richter, Linton-HMB; Kinsey Zuroff, Beulah; Kenadi Renner, Bismarck High
Coaches – Jamie Richter, Linton-HMB; Jamie Zastoupil, Bismarck Century
