A 5’10” hitter from Buhler high school, Josie Williams, was a four-time first-team All-AVCTL pick. Her senior year, Williams received first-team All-State Honors and was picked for the Class 4A State Tournament team.
“Josie Williams is a very efficient, talented and all-skill outside hitter. Her competitiveness and toughness will help us to bring more attacking power on the net and also from back row,” said Bing Xu, head coach. “Josie and (setter) Macki (Pankratz) are from the same high school. There is a connection and chemistry between both of them as a setter and a hitter.”
During her years at Olathe South high school, Jaide Allenbrand was named the Most Valuable Player of the MO-KAN Classic as a junior. Allenbrand is a 5’7” defender.
“Jaide is an aggressive ball winner who is also very good technically,” said Bryan Sailer, head coach. “She is a presence at center back and has good leadership qualities. Jaide can take over a game defensively. I expect Jaide to come in and make a huge impact for our team.”
