Class: Sophomore

Position: Setter

How she fared: Recorded 20 assists in a win over Atlanta Girls School on Friday. Masiongale has 56 assists in her past four matches, leading Augusta Prep to three wins in that span.

What Masiongale said: “On the court, I’m like the quarterback of the team. I have to be aware of where my hitters are and which ones are hot. It could not be done without my hitters. They are amazing.”

What they’re saying: “The offense goes through her. She makes the decisions of when to set, and like we said, she’s the quarterback of the team. She’s an extension of the coach. To be her first year of varsity, she’s young but she’s progressing well.” – Coach Rich Bland
