Prep volleyball: 2015 All-Tribune Team

Jorry Randall

Morgan | Senior | Setter

When there was a pass to the middle of the court, Morgan players scampered out of the way. That's because they were sure their setter would get to the ball, have time to square her shoulders and deliver a pass to one of Morgan's many weapons on the front row. The Trojans never faltered, and finished nationally ranked with a 32-0 record. "She's very quick, very athletic and anticipates very well," Morgan coach Liz Wiscombe said. "And she knows where to go, knows where our hot hitters are — spreads it around to them."

Torre Glasker

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.

Dani Barton

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."

Kennedy Redding

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."

Aubrey Saunders

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."
