A NCAA Division 1 University of Wisconsin-Green Bay commit, Lass finished fourth in the conference in kills (137), sixth in digs (182) and seventh in attack percentage (.229).
Lass was also a Unanimous First Team All-WVC selection at outside hitter this season for the second year in a row, while Panthers went on to reach the WIAA Division 1 Sectional Finals, where they lost to eventual State Semifinalist River Falls.
Kluck was a four-year starter as a setter for Pacelli, and was Honorable Mention All-Central Wisconsin Conference-8 (CWC-8) as a freshman, Second Team All-CWC-8 as a sophomore and First Team All-CWC South as junior in 2017.
This season, she was a Unanimous First Team All-CWC-South selection and the CWC-South Player of the Year, as the Cardinals won their second consecutive Conference Title and advanced to the WIAA Division 3 Regional Finals.
