PLAYERS TO WATCH
Julie Doyle- Wayzata setter
The senior has lead the Trojans to consecutive state championship appearances. The All-State selection has committed to Oklahoma. She leads the team in assists and service aces.
Karlie Hauer – Andover middle/outside hitter
The senior led the state in blocked last season. She committed to North Dakota, but changed her mind and will play at Minnesota instead.
TROJANS WIN IF...
They can contain Andover’s strong front row that is looking for revenge for their loss last week. The Huskies had not lost a set until last week’s loaded tournament.
HUSKIES WIN IF...
They continue to their new setters and passers after losing eleven seniors to graduation.
