Congratulations to KC Power coach Dave Johnson and his high school team recognized in the 2016 ZNational PrepVolleyball National High School Rankings!

A key injury to 6-2 middle Courtney Carpenter tamed the Tigers last year. She’s back. So is senior OHLauren Stubbs, senior setter Abby Blackburn and four others, in addition to a good freshman group. Dave Johnson’s team could make some noise.

4. Madison Lilley, 5-11 S, Blue Valley West (Overland Park, Kansas), KC Power — Kentucky

Senior Ace Madison Lilley

Senior Ace Madison Lilley

A game changer for every team she’s on, Lilley is a towering talent who will be Kentucky’s most touted recruit ever. Named 2015 PrepVolleyball.com National Junior of the Year after leading her high school to its first state title in a decade, Lilley is a gutsy setter who will set anybody from anywhere. She is particularly skilled at bettering bad passes, even setting to the opposite pin from off the court, and she has a knack for setting middles. Though she will set exclusively at Kentucky, Lilley is definitely a five-tool player. She is a smooth athlete with a flawless arm swing who loves to attack. Her serve is among the toughest in the nation. She is a dominant blocker at the net and her defense is both relentless and sophisticated. Lilley also is blessed with all the intangibles a big-time setter needs to help her teams win at the highest level. She is a natural leader, whip smart on the court and competes like no other. Lilley also has massive big-match experience, including from having played for the USA on its Youth and Junior National Teams the past two summers, and has been in so many pressure situations that she remains calm in the critical moments. “Her leadership qualities have been even more impressive in the beginning part of her senior season,” said BVW head coach Jessica Kopp. “If she feels the intensity in a practice beginning to dwindle, she brings the team together and lights the fire anew. She will do incredible things at Kentucky and beyond, I am excited to see her excel this year and in the future.”

35. Megan Cooney, 6-4 RS/OH, Shawnee Heights (Tecumseh, Kansas), KC Power – Illinois

Senior Ace Megan Cooney

Senior Ace Megan Cooney

A versatile attacker with a high volleyball IQ, Cooney has the ability to terminate at will from either pin.  Defensively, she has natural blocking eyes and knows where to put her hands. This allows her to effectively shut down the best hitters in the country.  Cooney moves well for her size, and continues to hone her back row skills.  She has a strong platform in serve receive and covers plenty of court with her long frame.  She isn’t rattled easily and does her most efficient work in pressure situations.  A good worker and mature leader, Cooney projects as a big-time point scorer at Illinois, where she has committed.
