The country's premier high school volleyball all-star match will feature one of this state's top players.
Superior senior and Nebraska recruit Kalynn Meyer was selected to play in the Under Armour All-America showcase on Dec. 31 in Orlando, Florida.
The match typically takes place on the same weekend and at the same site as the NCAA Final Four. But this year, it will coincide with the Under Armour All-America Football Game.
Meyer was one of 24 players selected to compete in the match.
The 6-foot-3 Meyer is among the state leaders in kills (574). She also has 68 blocks. Meyer had a season-high 26 kills against Minden in October.
