2012 Northern Region Volleyball Preview

One of the best things about the fall is that Northern Region High School Volleyball resumes, and one of the biggest questions on everyone’s mind who follows the sport in this area is whether the Stone Bridge Bulldogs, who have won back-to-back Northern Region titles, can win three in a row. The Bulldogs have a lot of returning talent including 2011 Northern Region Player of the Year and First Team Virginia AAA All-State Outside Hitter Ryan Ackermann, and Honorable Mention All-State Libero Sarah Fairchild. Moreover, junior Libby Haslett has really stepped up her play for the Bulldogs this season.

In addition to Stone Bridge, there are a number of other exciting teams to watch in the area, and coaches in the Region have relayed that they expect a number of teams to be ones to watch this season including Langley, Oakton, South County, Woodson, and Yorktown. A team that appears to be one to keep your eyes on is South Lakes. The Liberty District is an extremely tough place to play, however, the Seahawks have some fun outside hitters to watch including Annemarie Bresson, Dory DeWeese, and Cloe Traylor.

One thing all of the coaches seem to agree on is that there is a large amount of talent in the Region this season, and a number of players are expected to be big difference makers for their clubs this fall. A list of some of these stand-outs is below:

Ryan Ackermann, Stone Bridge, Sr, OH
