High school boys volleyball

The  American Volleyball Coaches Association’s pre-season “Watch List” for High School Boys volleyball players includes Westminster Christian Academy’s Mitch Penning and Tom Beckmann, of St. Louis University High.

This year’s watch list includes 79 players from 12 states and serves as the starting point for the Boys’ High School Senior All-America selection process.

In May, the AVCA will name 20 student-athletes as an All-American, with 10 players being selected to both a first team and second team.
