The USA TODAY High School Sports Awards is pleased to announce its watch list for the 2022-23 USA TODAY HSSA Girls Volleyball Team!
This initial list includes 50 current student-athletes who meet the nomination criteria for this year’s national Girls Volleyball Player of the Year Award. These athletes were either nominees in last year’s national awards show, or athletes who were seriously considered based on season-wide performance, state and national championships, and any other state, regional and/or national recognition.
This year’s official 2022-23 USA TODAY HSSA Girls Volleyball Team will be announced this winter. All final team members will be honored as nominees for national Girls Volleyball Player of the Year. The winner, along with three finalists, will be revealed during the third annual USA TODAY High School Sports Awards. Visit the event website for updates leading up to this summer's on-demand event!

The purpose of these watch lists is to track eligible nominees for this year’s national show. Athletes could be removed from this list if they no longer play for their high school team (either by choice or injury), or if their high school no longer participates in a state-sanctioned championship tournament.
