The long holiday weekend provided a showcase for outstanding 2026 setters across the state of Washington. Early season statements were made by several athletes that are playing at either the 15U or 16U level. It's exciting to get the club season started and for these freshman standouts, its a chance to lead a team, something that may not have been their role during the school season. The growth between the 14U and 15U seasons is explosive, a full year of high school practices versus junior high season is a game changer. There are several prospects that stood out for their teams this past weekend.

The SVA 16-1 squad went undefeated playing in the Silver Bracket of the 15/16 combined division at the Matt Hartner Memorial in Eugene. Quitiquit ran the team from the setting spot and attacked showing off her versatility at the pin, and as a player overall. She is an outstanding athlete with a great volleyball IQ and the overall skill you like to see out of a setter.  This Seattle Volleyball Acaademy team is talented and plays tough, Quitiquit exemplifies the competitiveness of the group. They have a PSR Power League qualifier coming up next, including an interesting matchup with the solid SIVBC 16 Thunder.

Club Team Preview: SVA 16-1 National

 

In just their second season as part of the Puget Sound Region, Seattle Volleyball Academy has assembled an excellent team at the 16’s age level. Bolstered by a strong contingent from Kennedy Catholic, the team should be versatile and athletic. Although they won’t have a huge frontline strictly by height, the team overall jumps well and is extremely athletic and quick. Head Coach Brianna Trier and assistant Joe Baleto will be training and guiding the team through a busy national schedule.

 

JASMINE TERRY

2026 Rogers  High School

Terry had one of the better freshman debuts in the state this season, playing as an outside hitter at the 4A level for Rogers (Puyallup). She faced great competition all season long and grew into her role as a six-rotation player. That is a difficult task coming in as a ninth grader, Terry handled the pressure well. She will give SVA a springy attacker at the pin but is also extremely effective in the middle where blockers are not ready for her explosiveness.

 

AUBREY MCCRAW

2025 Kennedy Catholic High School

McCraw is one of several Kennedy Catholic players on the squad, she brings nice length to the outside position at 5’11. Athletic and tough, McCraw is an excellent basketball player for the Lancers, she has posted big rebounding numbers this season. Expect her to play at both pins, she looked comfortable on the right side for Kennedy during the season.

 

CAM MOSKOVITZ

2025 Holy Names Academy 

Moskovitz is an excellent attacker, primarily playing the opposite at Holy Names Academy. She garnered first-team all-conference honors and helped the team reach the state tournament for the first time since 2016. The skilled left-hander has a knack for finding open spots on the court. Moskovitz will cut the ball to the angle, drive it down the line, and has a soft change of pace that will drop in front of the back row.

TIA MONTERO

2025 Kennedy Catholic High School

Montero is a scrappy sophomore who excelled defending at the JV level for Kennedy Catholic this past season. She gives SVA another excellent passer and serving weapon to utilize, and has a great demeanor on the court. Montero will need to be ready to play next season at Kennedy Catholic as the Lancers lose six seniors.

 

VIVIAN YOUNT

2025 Kennedy Catholic High School

Yount is at her best attacking aggressively from her middle blocker spot. She plays strong at the net, challenging hard on overpasses and jousts, and putting up a great wall on the block. She is increasing her offensive toolbox, running the 3 and the back-1, and getting herself away from the opposing middles. She is a solid server as well, it’s always good to have a middle who is dangerous from the service line.

 

ADDISON ZEISSEL

2025 Kennedy Catholic High School  

SVA won’t lack for versatile players who can play multiple positions, Zeissel can take swings as a six rotation outside, or step into the libero spot as she did get Kennedy Catholic. Athletic and strong, she has a quick arm on offense and a solid platform while passing. Zeissel reads the game well and never seems to be out of position or surprised on defense.

 

MAYA QUITQUIT

2026 Kennedy Catholic High School

Quitquit is one of the top dual setters/attackers in the Washington 2026 class. Along with her Kennedy Catholic running mate Danielle Turcinec, the two can pair in an attacking/setting rotation, or either can run a 5-1 set. Quitquit has the combination of soft hands, good foot speed, and volleyball smarts you want in the setter running the show. Her vertical and attacking ability just add something extra to her overall game. She stood out in last year’s Emerald Classic on the defensive side as well, Quitquit is an all-around, outstanding volleyball player.

Other players include the dynamic Danielle Turcinec, DS/L Sonja Strom , and continuing the trend of versatility, OH/DS Genevieve Schuster. The team already finished strong in their first tournament, with a second-place run at the Puyallup Juniors Winter Classic. A tough final matchup with NPJ 16 National was the only setback, 21-25, 25-27.
