A list of the nation's top 100 high school senior volleyball players was released this week, and Dimond's Leah Swiss is on it.

Swiss is one of 52 honorable mention selections on the eighth annual Under Armour girls high school All-America team. She is the first Alaskan to be named to the team, according to Gary Steinford of the Alaska Volleyball Association.

Swiss, a 6-foot outside hitter, is a lethal attacker who frequently hits double figures in both kills and digs. She has committed to play college volleyball at UAA.

She is a member of Dimond's defending state championship squad that is the top seed in this week's Cook Inlet Conference tournament at Service High.

The Under Armour All-America team includes 24 players on the first team, 24 on the second team and 52 on the honorable mention team. Selections were made by the American Volleyball Coaches Association.
