In light of the year 2020 and how unusual circumstances might have had impact on player performance, I find it difficult to judge the worth of players on their statistics alone.

That’s why, for this year’s 2020 All-Area Volleyball Team, I’ve chosen those who put on a stat show and those who impacted their team on the court to create this list of volleyball elites. Coaches preach it all the time, and growing up in a household of coaches I staunchly believe that being a great player is nothing if there’s a lack of character. The girls I chose showed skill and poise throughout the season, making their teams better for it.
