Cassie Haag
Concordia-St. Paul
Middle Hitter
Key Notes: If Haag even comes close to last season’s numbers this season, she’ll be quite a force to be reckoned with. An AVCA All-American in 2010, Haag had a career-high 25 kills in a match against Central Missouri last season. Apart from that, she had double-digit kills in all six of her team’s matches in the NCAA tournament and 32 matches with double-digit points.

Other Players to Watch this Weekend:  Concordia’s Megan Carlson (Senior, Outside Hitter), Central Missouri’s Ali Huffman (Senior, Outside Hitter), Central Missouri’s Paula Harris (Senior, Middle Hitter), Cal State-San Bernardino's Samantha Middleborn (Senior, Middle Hitter), Tampa's Danielle Selkridge (Junior, Middle Hitter), Washburn's Mollie Lacy (Senior, Middle Hitter).


• No. 1 Concordia-St. Paul begins its bid for a fifth consecutive national championship with three matches against ranked opponents this weekend, including an early showdown with second-ranked Central Missouri on Friday night. 

• Central Missouri is busy this weekend, as well. In addition to facing Concordia-St. Paul, the Jennies will square off with No. 9 Wayne State earlier Friday, followed by No. 25 Northern Michigan and No. 6 Southwest Minnesota State on Sunday.
