Video: Top 25 high school volleyball rankingsCathedral Catholic remains on top as Nike TOC looms this weekend.
Cathedral Catholic held serve on the No. 1 spot last with a pair of wins ... but the hold on the top spot could be short-lived depending on the Dons' fortunes at the Nike Tournament of Champions in Phoenix this week.
Madison Endsley and freshman Julia Blyashov have provided the power for Cathedral Catholic, while seniors Kylie Adams
and Teresa Atilano
have joined sophomore Anna Pringle
to provide setting and defense for the Dons.
And while not as top heavy at the Durango Fall Classic, the Nike event features some heavyweights in the top-ranked Dons, No. 3 Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.), No. 13 Marymount (Los Angeles), No. 14 Kamehameha-Kapalama (Honolulu), No. 15 Xavier College Prep (Phoenix) along with powers like Walton (Marietta, Ga.), Plant (Fla.), Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas), North Raleigh Christian Academy (Raleigh, N.C.), Millennium (Ariz.), James Logan (Fremont, Calif.) and Hagerty (Oviedo, Fla.).
McIntosh (Peachtree, Ga.), Briarcrest Christian (Eads, Tenn.) and Skutt Catholic (Omaha, Neb.) join the rankings this week. Skutt's Allie Gray and Lindsay Krause set school marks as Gray posted 65 assists and Krause hammered 28 kills in a win over St. Teresa's Academy (Kansas City, Mo.).
