High school volleyball: Sizing up HIGHSCORE National Player of the Year candidates - HIGHSCORE
High school volleyball: Sizing up MaxPreps National Player of the Year candidates
While some states are well into their high school volleyball seasons, others are just warming up. Schools in the Midwest and South have eyes on the postseason while some programs in Texas are inching into double-digit contests.

States forging ahead with a traditional calendar, coupled with COVID-19 delays and later starts have made tracking players and teams a unique challenge.

We've assembled a list of 25 players who are into their seasons — some deep — while realizing those who've played longer will have the more appealing numbers. We'll update this list several more times throughout the school year and plan to add those schools with spring starts as well.

MaxPreps National Player of the Year watch list

Ally Batenhorst | Sr. | OH | Seven Lakes (Katy, Texas)
The Spartans are off to a 9-0 start and the Nebraska commit is a big reason why. She's posted 200 kills (6.5 per set) in 31 sets this season. She's added 144 digs and 10 aces as large school volleyball in Texas is ramping up.

Eleanor Beavin | Sr. | L | Mercy (Louisville, Ky.)
With 301 digs (8 per set) and 222 serve receives in an 11-2 start for the Jaguars, the Kentucky commit is leading the way for Matt Thomerson's squad. Beavin is closing in on 1,500 digs for her career at Mercy.

Julia Bishop | Sr. | S | Mercy (Farmington Hills, Mich.)
The Michigan State commit has 593 assists (10.6 per game), 107 digs, 46 aces and 85 kills as the Marlins are 23-0 on the year. Bishop came into the season needing two assists to pass the 1,000-career mark and has now surpassed 1,500.

Clara Brower | Sr. | S | The Woodlands (Texas)
The Highlanders dropped their first match of the season on Tuesday, but the Georgia commit became the school's leading setter and now has 3,608 career assists. Brower has 256 assists (8.8 per set) on the season in 29 sets, while adding 97 digs and 37 kills. She also passed the 1,000-dig mark and sits at 1,035.

Riley Buckley | Jr. | MH | North Raleigh Christian Academy (Raleigh, N.C.)
The Knights are 11-1 as Buckley has posted 94 kills, 85 digs, 138 assists on the young season.

Averi Carlson | Jr. | S | Lovejoy (Lucas, Texas)
The Leopards are 3-0 after having to cancel the first two weeks of the season due to district COVID-19 policies. Now in action, the Baylor commit and MaxPreps Freshman of the Year two seasons ago is starting hot with 71 assists (7.9) thus far. She dished up 31 alone in the season-opening straight sets win over The Colony.

Payton Chamberlain | Sr. | S | Byron Nelson (Trophy Club, Texas)
Like her fellow Texans, the Bobcats are just beginning and have started 5-1. The Wyoming commit has posted 186 assists (8.9 per set) to go with 25 blocks and 53 digs.

Kaylee Cox | Sr. | OH | Flower Mound (Texas)
The Jags are off to an 8-0 start and the preseason All-American is one reason why. Cox has 56 kills and 37 digs in 10 sets on the young season. A few more reasons why Flower Mound might be the team to beat in Texas — setter Caroline Dykes and hitters Angelique Cyr and Izabella Ortiz.

Shaye Eggleston | Sr. | OH | Brentwood (Tenn.)

The Alabama commit is looking to win her fourth state title — and the school's eighth straight — as the Bruins are off to a 31-3 start. Eggleston has 364 kills, 172 digs, 28 aces and 26 blocks while hitting at 33 percent clip.

Ashlyn Goolsby | Sr. | S | Walton (Marietta, Ga.)
A freshman when the Raiders were named the 2017 MaxPreps National Champion, Goolsby has come into her own and leads the team with 408 assists (10.2 per set). She's also tallied 86 digs and 42 kills as fellow senior Emery Dupes also helps pace 16-1 Walton.

Rylee Gray | Sr. | MB | Elkhorn South (Omaha, Neb.)
Hitting at a 47 percent clip for the 22-1 Storm, the Nebraska commit has 262 kills, 29 aces and 71 blocks in what's turning out to be an ultra-competitive season in the Cornhusker State. Junior setter Madi Woodin is also shining with 726 assists on the season.

Lauren Harden | Fr. | OH | Hamilton Southeastern (Fishers, Ind.)
The lone freshman on the list, Harden is leading a quartet of hitters for the 20-0 Royals. She's notched 216 kills, 83 digs, 23 aces and 24 blocks in 59 sets. Harden has double-digit kills in 15 of 20 matches.

Sydney Helmers | So. | OH | Assumption (Louisville, Ky.)
Another in the next line of standout hitters for Ron Kordes, the 6-3 sophomore leads the 9-1 Rockets with 118 kills (4.9 per set) on the young season.

Carly Hendrickson | Sr. | OH | Mount Notre Dame (Cincinnati)
Has 301 kills (7.0 per set) on the season for the 12-1 Cougars and it closing in on 1,000 career kills. The future Florida Gator has 10 matches this season with at least 19 kills and a high of 35 in a four-set win over Seton.

Ali Hornung | Sr. | L/OH | Providence (Clarksville, Ind.)
Leading a quartet of hitters with more than 100 kills for the 18-6 Pioneers, the Purdue commit has 341 kills (4.4), 280 digs and 378 receives. She's hitting at a 38 percent clip.

Ngozi Iloh | Sr. | MH | McIntosh (Peachtree City, Ga.)
The preseason All-American is getting it done for the 24-0 Raiders, pounding out 327 kills (5.9 per set), hitting at 45 percent. The Duke commit also has 32 blocks and 18 aces for Georgia's top-ranked squad.

Lindsay Krause | Sr. | MH/OH | Skutt Catholic (Omaha, Neb.)
The 6-3 Nebraska commit has 201 kills (5.4 per set) for the 15-1 Skyhawks. In 37 sets, Krause also has 41 aces and 116 digs while posting double-digit kills in all but two matches. Setter Allie Gray is also having a standout season thus far with 453 assists (12.2 per set).

Brooke Cirigliano | Sr. | MH | Padua Franciscan (Parma, Ohio)
The Miami (Ohio) commit leads the 15-0 Bruins with 163 kills (3.4 per set) while adding 71 blocks and 13 aces. Cirigliano is hitting nearly 50 percent and leads four senior hitters (Maria Futey, Kate Mihacevich and Jordan Chessar) with at least 100 kills.

Sophia Powell | Sr. | S | Lowell (Mich.)
One of two Red Arrows on the watch list, Powell has dished up 699 assists (10.1 per set) while also adding 94 kills and 165 digs for her 18-3 squad. Powell has tossed up double-digit assist in every match this season with highs of 51, 45 and 40.

Bergen Reilly | So. | S | O'Gorman (Sioux Falls, S.D.)
The Swiss Army knife has done a bit of everything for the 14-0 Knights this season. Reilly has 203 kills (5.2 per set), 20 aces, 37 blocks, 144 digs and 62 assists for the South Dakota squad. In 2238 sets for her young prep career, she has 1,114 assists, 586 digs and 457 kills.

Jenna Reitsma | Sr. | OH | Lowell (Mich.)
The Marquette commit is leading the Red Arrows with 491 kills (7.1 per set), in addition to 243 digs and 36 aces. She's notched 30 kills in a match three times this season and has double-digit kills in all but one match.

Ellee Stinson | Sr. | OH/L | Yorktown (Ind.)
The Tigers are 20-0 and the 5-3 senior is a big reason. The Northwestern commit has 203 kills and 313 digs and provides a great 1-2 punch with 6-0 senior Jaylynn Dunsmore (212 kills, 44 blocks).

Paris Thompson | Sr. | OH | Fort Myers (Fla.)
Headed to Notre Dame, Thompson surpassed 1,000 kills in her career with a 19-kill performance Wednesday in a sweep of Port Charlotte. the 6-3 hitter has posted 288 kills (5.8 per set) this season with 140 digs, 30 aces and 16 blocks.

Mabrey Shaffmaster | Sr. | OH | New Castle (Ind.)
The North Carolina commit set the school record for kills on Sept. 30, passing the 2,000 mark with a 46-smash night (also a record). She's got 409 kills on the year (6.3 per set) to go with 47 aces, 26 blocks, 244 digs and 397 serve receives as the Trojans look for a fourth straight state title. For her career, Shaffmaster has 2,166 kills and 893 digs.

Addie VanderWeide | Sr. | OH | Christian (Grand Rapids, Mich.)
The Eagles are 16-0 and the 5-11 captain is a big reason why. She's posted 232 kills (5.3 per set), along with 165 digs and 19 aces. She's hit double-digit kills in 13 matches thus far with a high of 27 this week in a five-set win over Byron Center.

MLB Draft: Top 10 high school pitching prospects - HIGHSCORE
MLB Draft: Top 10 high school pitching prospects
Video: 10 Extreme high schools via Google Earth
See these campuses that run north to south and east to west.

With only five rounds in the Major League Baseball Draft this year, much fewer high school players are expected to be chosen in the early rounds compared to previous season, especially pitchers.

That being said, more high school pitchers will be chosen in this year's draft than any other position, with the bulk of those players being right-handed pitchers.

With only two days to go before the 2020 MLB Draft, here's a look at our final installment — pitchers. Previously, we've looked at corner infielders, middle infielders, outfielders and catchers.
Graphic by Ryan Escobar
Nick Bitsko, Central Bucks East (Doylestown, Pa.)
Scouts don't know a whole lot about Bitsko since he reclassified from the Class of 2021 and he didn't take the field during the 2020 spring. Thus he only played two seasons of high school baseball. Nevertheless, scouts don't need to know much when a pitcher is hitting 96 mph on his fastball. Bitsko, at 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds, also has the size to add more speed. He also has a solid enough curve and change to be considered the top right-handed prep prospect in the draft. Projection: Top 15 picks.

Jared Kelley, Refugio (Texas)
If not for Bitsko, Kelley would be the top prospect. The National Gatorade Player of the Year, Kelley did not allow a hit in three appearances, including a complete-game no-hitter. Kelley's fastball has hit 99 mph this spring and he also has a change that's considered a plus second pitch. Projection: Top 20 picks.

Mick Abel, Jesuit (Portland, Ore.)
Abel has a 94 mph fastball, but the slider is his premium pitch, which Baseball America ranks as the best in the 2020 draft. The Gatorade State Player of the Year in Oregon had an 18-3 career record with 213 career strikeouts. Projection: End of first round.

Jared Jones, La Mirada (Calif.)
Jones has command of an assortment of pitches and is also a possible everyday player based on his ability on offense. Jones is a possible second-round selection, but his signability is in question, considering he has committed to play at Texas — one of the top baseball programs in the nation. Projection: Second round.

Carson Montgomery, Windermere (Fla.)
Another pitcher who has a mid-90s fastball to go along with a plus change. Montgomery also has a curve in his repertoire making him a solid three-pitch candidate. Projection: Second round.

Justin Lange, Llano (Texas)
Lange is a new name among the top pitching prospects thanks to a spring season in which his fastball hit 99 mph. That type of velocity would normally make Lange a first-round prospect, but with a shortened spring, scouts appear willing to wait until the second round. Projection: Second round.

Nolan McLean, Garner Magnet (Garner, N.C.)
McLean is a two-way prospect after belting nine home runs and batting .373 as a junior to go along with 53 strikeouts in 28 innings pitched. A two-sport athlete, McLean also had 6,809 yards passing as a quarterback. McLean can hit 94 mph on his fastball. Projection: Third round.

Cam Brown, Flower Mound (Texas)
Brown had a very strong summer last year, which pushed him up the ranks of the top pitching prospects in the country. His fastball sits in the mid-90s and he has good command of a curve ball and change-up, however he is likely a third- or fourth-round selection. Projection: Third round.

Alex Santos, Mt. St. Michael Academy (Bronx, N.Y.)
Santos hits about 93 mph on his fastball, but scouts project Santos to add speed to the pitch as he adds strength at the next level. He also has a solid change-up and curve and appears to have plenty of potential. Projection: Fourth round.

Dax Fulton, Mustang (Okla.)
The only left-hander on the list, Fulton has a 96 mph fastball and he is one of the few lefties expected to be drafted during the five-round selection process. Fulton is ranked as a first-round prospect by some mock drafts, but he more than likely falls toward the end. Projection: Fifth round.
High school baseball: 109-0 blowout tops list of highest scoring games - HIGHSCORE
High school baseball: 109-0 blowout tops list of highest scoring games
The highest scoring baseball game in high school history was played April 25, 1928 when Atlantic (Iowa) defeated nearby Griswold (Iowa), 109-0, but that's only part of the story. The rest of the story involves a girl, money and bad blood that produced an avalanche of national records and possibly the most lopsided score in all of sports history.

The story begins on March 29, 1928, in Griswold, a small town in eastern Iowa, when baseball coach Phil Morrison decided to go with Alice Buckman as his starting right fielder. The selection of Buckman, "a 15-year old red-headed girl," over nine other boys caused quite a stir across the entire country as the Associated Press carried the story and it appeared in newspapers from the Los Angeles Times to the New York Daily News and all points in between.

Griswold games then became a madhouse with fans coming from far and wide to watch Buckman play. She didn't disappoint, either, getting several hits and fielding her position flawlessly aside from one dropped, wind-blown popup.

Griswold games became a main attraction. Movie crews filmed Buckman's every move. Newspaper articles on Griswold games focused only on Buckman's exploits. Opinion columns across the country praised Buckman's accomplishment. The gate at the first Griswold baseball home game was $75 — that's nearly $1,200 in earnings today. She was asked to throw out the first pitch at a minor league ballgame and she was given a trophy for her "Triumph" at the Elliott Track Relays. She was even given a full-page feature in the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

At Atlantic, coach P.G. Russell sought to get a game with Griswold on his home field. In an agreement with Morrison, the two teams would play in Atlantic on April 25 and split the gate 50-50 (one report says the agreement was made the previous fall). Russell anticipated a big crowd and even set up an extra train to run from Griswold to Atlantic to handle the overflow crowd.

Atlantic, it should be noted, was an outstanding team. Undefeated to start the season, Atlantic featured a pitcher, Don King, who had earned all-state honors in the winter while leading Atlantic to a third-place finish in the state basketball tournament. King would play heavily in the matchup against Griswold.

During the week prior to the game, Russell accused Morrison of reneging on their contract, suggesting that Morrison wanted a 60-40 split for Griswold instead of the agreed upon 50-50 cut. Morrison denied the switch, and that's when things began to go downhill. Cries of "commercialization" appeared in newspapers from as far as New Jersey with Morrison denying he was trying to make money off his now nationally famous right fielder.

Morrison then announced the day before the game that Buckman would be unable to play due to an injured finger sustained against Cumberland the game before. Suggesting that he wanted his team to focus on a game the following day against Adair, Morrison pulled his starters, including Buckman, and sent his freshman squad to take on Atlantic.

The results were not pretty. While Atlantic scored only four runs in the first inning, it put 30 across in the second. It scored 12 runs in the third, six runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings, 27 in the seventh and 18 in the eighth.

According to Steve Baier, a Cass County Supervisor who has done research on the game, the game was played at Sunnyside Park, which did not have a fence. A rope was utilized to hold back the fans, who formed the outer boundary of the field.

"Griswold's usual left fielder, Johnny Gustin, threw every pitch," said Baier in an e-mail to MaxPreps. "By the eighth inning, Griswold had only seven players on the field. The (nine-inning) game ended in the eighth due to darkness."

The game was an offensive bonanza for Atlantic. Besides bashing out 92 base hits, Atlantic had 16 home runs, five by Ronald Rapp, 26 doubles and seven triples. Atlantic also blazed on the base paths, swiping 113 bases. Griswold, meanwhile, committed 22 errors.

King was the feature player of the game, however. Besides throwing a no-hitter and striking out 16 (other reports say 13), he also led the Atlantic offensive with 15 hits, two home runs, two doubles and 19 stolen bases.

Obviously the game provided a plethora of national records, but only a handful of them are recognized by the National Federation of High Schools Record Book and the Iowa High Schools Athletic Association record book produced by Bud Legg. While most of the team records are listed, none of the individual marks have found their way into the record books.

Chris Boone of the National Federation reported in an e-mail to MaxPreps that the absence of individual records is likely due to the absence of any boxscores to prove the record-breaking marks.

MaxPreps has included two box scores for the game with this story (pictured below). One is from April 27 in the Des Moines Register and includes all of the stolen base and extra base hit totals, but does not including run totals. An accompanying box score from the April 26 Atlantic News Telegraph shows the run totals, but does not include extra base hits.

Some of the statistics were never reported. Game reports do not list any of the players, other than King, who hit doubles. RBI totals are also not available along with any reports of players who might have scored multiple runs or had multiple hits in an inning.

The two teams met later in the season and the score proved to be much closer. With Griswold's starters, including Buckman, on the field, Atlantic posted a 2-1 win.

Most Stolen Bases in a Game: Atlantic, 113 (current record is 45 by Salome, Ariz.).
Most Runs in an Inning: Atlantic 30 (ranks 9th best all-time according to NFHS)

There are multiple individual records and listmakers from Atlantic that should be included in the record book. Here are the individual record holders according to the NFHS record book and the totals of the players from Atlantic:

Most Individual Stolen Bases Game: NFHS Record — 12 by Silento Sayles, Port Gibson, Miss., 2013. Atlantic stats: Don King, 19 stolen bases; Dale Heath, 16 stolen bases; Laine Rose, 15 stolen bases; Leon Pine, 14 stolen bases; Clyde Hill, 13 stolen bases; Wynn Rentz, 13 stolen bases.

Most Triples in a Game: NFHS Record — 4 by six players, last by Gehrig Chambless of Legacy Charter (Fla.) in 2016. Atlantic stats: Wynn Rentz, 4 triples.

And finally, a look at the top 10 highest scoring high school baseball games.
