Two big hitters to watch in the west are Abby Bratlien from Tioga and Courtney Egge from Stanley.

Bratlien pounded 500 plus kills last season for the Pirates and nearly as many digs, the 6 footer has has received multiple All District and All Conference Honors. She looks to be one of the best volleyball players in the state this year if she stays healthy.

Egge the 6 foot MH from Stanley amassed more than 450 kills for the Blue Jays last season and 500 plus digs. She led Stanley to the District 15 championship where she was named Tournament MVP. She also has acquired multiple All District and All Conference Honors.

These two may be the best in the west!
