Bingham | Senior | Outside Hitter
A two-sport standout (with softball the other), Glasker shines on the volleyball court in the fall for the Miners. Glasker peppered opponents to the tune of 407 kills in 2015 and led Bingham one step short of the 5A championship game. Very athletic, Glasker also was a vital back-row player when she rotated in that direction and recorded 41 serving aces for the year. Glasker has signed to play for the University of Utah next season.
Brighton | Junior | Outside Hitter
While most hitters have a good night when hitting 20 kills for a match, that's often on the low side for Barton. The University of Utah-bound standout followed up the Bengals' Class 5A basketball championship last spring by pounding away on the volleyball court as Brighton advanced to the state semifinals. "She's so athletic, and it was nice to see her getting to her potential," Bengals coach Adam Fernandez said. "I'm really glad to have her back next year."
Bountiful | Senior | Middle Hitter
The 2015 season for the Braves could have gone in an entirely different direction, after its head coach was sued by an assistant and subsequently suspended for the season, but it was players like Redding that held the team together. Ultimately, the BYU signee led Bountiful to the Class 4A state championship the first for the school in volleyball. "She's just a gem," said Braves interim coach Sabrina Hughes. "She adapted well. She was positive with every single girl on the team, always encouraging."
Morgan | Senior | Middle Hitter
Always energetic, the Trojan often provided the extra impetus needed for victory which happened without even one exception in 2015. Saunders put down 238 kills from her middle spot, often moving to the right on slide plays to put her athleticism to good use. She also served up 43 aces in Morgan's undefeated season. "She's just a great hitter and can hit anywhere along the net, which is really nice," Trojans coach Liz Wiscombe said. "When we find out where the block is weak, Aubrey can hit over the top of it."
Pleasant Grove | Senior | Opposite Hitter
The Vikings had trying times in their attempt to gain a fourth straight 5A title, beginning with injuries that took out two starters from the outset. But Dahl was a steady presence when Pleasant Grove, which eventually made it back to the championship game, needed one the most. And a powerful one too, as the senior slugged 173 kills against opponents caught by surprise by such a forceful swing from the right side. "She was a great leader," Vikes coach Allyce Jones said. "And one of the funnest kids I've ever coached."
Lehi | Senior | Libero
The Pioneers' run to the state championship in Class 5A included another year of stellar play from White, who could quickly appear seemingly from nowhere to save a ball in the back row. White, who has also led Lehi to two state softball titles, was also extremely valuable as a spur-of-the-moment setter when the situation dictated. "When Rachel (Richards, Lehi's setter) took a ball in the back row, she was trained to dig it and send it to Syd," Pioneers coach Jamie Ingersoll said. "Syd could then set a nice, high ball to an outside hitter."
