The 2021 high school volleyball season is slated to begin this Saturday with area Twin Valley League teams competing at Wabaunsee and Marysville.

As we head into the season, we have put together a quick preview of the returners coming back in TVL this season.

The league was dominated last year by the Valley Heights Mustangs who ran the table and went a perfect 12-0 to claim the league title. The Mustangs head into 2021 with high expectations once again with senior trio of Emma Yungeberg, Cat Toerber, and Maddy Vermetten all back after each were named all-league selections a year ago.

Hanover showed just how tough the TVL is a season ago losing three league matches before going on to win the 1A-DII State Championship and are the favorite to repeat bringing back three all-state selections in Ceegan Atkins, Avery Behrends and Madison Bruna.

Centralia is coming off a big year as well after the Panthers won 10 league games and bring back all-state senior Avery Deters, while junior hitter Raegan Becker returns after earning an all-league selection in 2020.

Washington County has the most to replace off their 8-2 league record they put together last season with the graduation of Camryn Boykin and Alyssa Kern but have a good young nucleus.

The Linn Bulldogs finished fifth in the league last season going 7-3 and have high hopes heading into 2021 with two all-league selections back in senior Kyrah Peters and junior Sophia Bott.

Perhaps the team with the most potential upside coming back is Doniphan West who has a good young core coming back including junior Avery Weathersbee who has the potential to be one of the best in the league.

Wetmore has some big shoes to fill heading into the year with the graduation of Reagan Osterhaus but the Cardinals still bring back senior Kenzie Strathman who is going to be a force.

Frankfort is also searching for answers after the graduation of a strong senior class that included Mariah Broxterman who was one of the better hitters in the league.

Onaga rounds out teams with all-league returners heading into the year as senior Kenzie Schwarts is back to lead the Buffaloes, while Troy, Clifton-Clyde, and Blue Valley all bring back young squads.

The Twin Valley League is expected to be loaded once again in 2021 with what Hanover and Valley Heights each bring back do not be surprised to see two potential state championships from the league come seasons end.
