6 of KC Power 16-1 team have been recognized by Prepvolleyball.com as some of the best varsity-playing sophomores in the country.  This list recognizes outstanding high school varsity achievement.  Congratulations to Regan Pittman (St. Thomas Aquinas), Nicole Purcell (Bishop Miege), Tess Reid (Olathe NW), Allie Strong (Bishop Miege) and Jenna Phelps (BVSW).
Regan Pittman, 6-3 MB, Aquinas (Overland Park, Kansas) – A force at the net for the 36-9 Saints in 2013, Pittman received Second Team All-Eastern Kansas League honors and All-State 5A Honorable Mention recognition for her play this past season. Leading her team to a perfect 7-0 regular season district finish and a number two ranking in the state of Kansas, Pittman finished the season with 2.1 kills per set, a hitting percentage of .336 and 82 total blocks. “Regan earned a starting position among a veteran group of players,” remarked coach Kim Bogart. “She changed the momentum of quite a few sets with her block and her hammer. Regan can put a quick hit away with so much force, we joke about the dents she leaves on the floor. She had an amazing sophomore season, and we look to her to only make strides in the club season to be unstoppable at the net next fall.”
Nicole Purcell, 5-8 OH, Bishop Miege (Shawnee Mission, Kansas) – First Team All-League and HM All-State, Purcell amassed 240 kills and a team-high 349 digs for the state-champion Stags in 2013. Purcell, who also earned All-State Tournament honors, topped the squad in serve percentage and serve receive percentage, was third in aces and fourth in blocks. She is a strong player all around with a high volleyball IQ and great ball control.
Tess Reid, 5-8 S/RS, Northwest (Olathe, Kansas) – All-Sunflower League and Second Team All-State, Reid led the Ravens to a program-best fourth place finish at state last fall. A natural leader who is nasty good on defense, Reid finished the year with 713 assists, 322 digs, 89 kills, 72 aces and 28 blocks.
Allie Strong, 5-10 OH, Bishop Miege (Shawnee Mission, Kansas) – Second Team All-League and Second Team All-State for the state champion Stags, Strong’s natural cannon (207 kills) made her a handful for Kansas City-area teams in 2013. “She was a game changer for the team especially late in the season,” said coach Gwenn Pike.  “Her heavy arm is her showcase.  Once Allie built consistency with her extremely hard hit, she was our go to hitter.”
Emily Engelken, 6-0 RS, Blue Valley West (Stillwell, Kansas) – HM All-League, Engleken was a huge presence on the right for the Jaguars last fall. She finished with 165 kills and 42 blocks
Jenna Phelps, 6-0 MB, Blue Valley Southwest (Overland Park, Kansas) – HM All-League, Phelps’ speed in the middle and behind the setter made her a handful for any team in the EKL
