Kendal Strand, 6-0 Briarcrest Christian (Eads, Tennessee) – Briarcrest’s go-to attacker front row and back, Strand recorded 388 kills (3.4 per set) and added 318 digs, 74 blocks and 56 aces for the Saints last fall en route to First Team All-Region and Best of the Preps honors. “She is a beautiful player to watch as she is young but possesses all the tools in attacking: power, rolls, finesse, line and all tempo attacks,” noted one area observer. “All coaches love Kendal because she is a true leader and so refined at a young age.”
