09.20.14 - PrepVolleyball.com is proud to present its Senior Aces, the top 250 volleyball recruits in the Class of 2015

71. Julia Saunders, 6-3 OH/RS, Nazareth Academy (LaGrange Park, Illinois), 1st Alliance — Wisconsin

Saunders has great length, a big arm and hits a heavy ball that gets on back-row players in a hurry. She can hit from anywhere and her agility allows her to be a blocking asset from all three positions along the net. Saunders plays with high intensity and is a big-time competitor who hates to lose. She is coachable and caring, self-motivated, a leader and a student of the game whose father is her high school coach. Saunders always wanted to play in the Big Ten and will get her wish at Wisconsin, where she has committed. Saunders recently moved to the pin after being in the middle most of her early career and is motivated to become a six-rotation player at a high level. If she succeeds, the Badgers will be getting even more than they expected.


65. Symone Speech, 6-3 MB, Oak Park-River Forest (Oak Park, Illinois), 1st Alliance – Georgetown

Fast laterally and off the floor, Speech is a blocker supreme whose eye work, determination, long arms and big hands make her very difficult to hit around or through. A high contact hitter, Speech is adept at attacking both in front of and behind the setter as well as hitting high ball sets from either pin. She also is good in serve receive for a tall player. Speech has been soaking up volleyball information since the sport became her passion in the seventh grade. ”Her every question and every athletic activity have all been geared to make her the best volleyball player that she can possibly be,” said high school coach Don August. “When the class had to run she asked to jump rope. When the others wanted to shoot baskets, she wanted to practice serving. She does not miss a rep or rotation in both drills and scrimmages and in fact doubles her work load by working with both the middles and the left sides.” Voted team captain, Speech is the kind of player everyone looks to, not just because she is the hardest worker in the gym, but also because of her infectious personality. Headed to Georgetown, she should make a big impact in each of her four years in D.C.


Hannah Juley, 5-10 S, Lyons Township (LaGrange, Illinois), 1st Alliance — Wisconsin

A foot injury knocked Juley off the court for most of her junior year, but her reputation as a top talent had already been established. A setter for only the better part of two years, Juley has lots of room to grow in the position. She has outstanding athletic ability that sets her apart. Her jumping ability makes her an able blocker and she has the confidence, communication skills, nice hands and high volleyball I.Q. to become an elite setter. Juley locates well and runs a fast offense. She moves well, has good range running down balls and puts up a consistent, hittable ball. Also a very good defender, Juley is just going to keep getting better and better. She will join her older sister, Erin, at Wisconsin, where she has committed.
