High school volleyball 2022: Portland's best returning players

Central Catholic High players Mia Starr, middle, and Malia Parker, right go up for a block against Bend on Saturday, Nov. 6, 2021, during the Class 6A state third-place match at Liberty High School.

After taking fourth a season ago, Central Catholic returns as the No. 1 ranked team in Class 6A for Oregon high school volleyball.

Behind them are plenty of Portland Interscholastic League teams trying to make their mark by not only winning a league title, but winning some matches in the postseason as well.
