Casey Schoenlein makes top-60 volleyball ‘Senior Aces’

Each year, prep volleyball guru John Tawa puts out his list of “Senior Aces,” the top 250 high-school senior players in the country.

It’s a pretty exclusive list, long as it is, and an honor to make the top-100.

Newport’s Casey Schoenlein did just that, and cracked the top-60 at that, coming in at No. 58. At 6-foot-4, she is widely considered the second-best player in Washington’s class of 2014 behind Bellarmine’s Courtney Schwan, who will be in the top-50 and possibly well up that list, which is still unfolding daily at PrepVolleyball.com.

Here is what Tawa had to say about Schoenlein on the website:

“A rare combination of power and coordination makes Schoenlein a tremendous prospect on the outside. She has a strong build and a big time arm with the ability to put the ball away time and time again. Her blocking – armpits above the net – makes opponents contemplate going elsewhere to score or suffer the consequences. And her brain’s ability to tell her body what to do will prove invaluable when the game speeds up at the next level. Schoenlein is a player with a huge upside for so many reasons. She is viewed as a cornerstone player for Washington State, where she has committed.”
