When Emily Holterhaus and her four-year volleyball career with the Lady Dutch comes to an end, her offensive production will rank among the greatest players in Iowa High School history.

Holterhaus, who crossed the 1500 career kills mark against Oskaloosa Tuesday, is one of just 20 Iowa High School volleyball players to eclipse the number of successful swings since Quikstats made statistics official in Iowa since 2007. Bree Thompson of Janesville also eclipsed the mark Tuesday, and Kenzie Mantz of Belle Plaine did so Monday.

Emily Box of Holy Trinity is 33 kills shy of the career mark, and would be the 21st player to reach the milestone.

Holterhaus currently sits at 1518 – tied for 17th all time, a number she will likely increase at the Newton tournament tonight. She is seven kills behind Marion County’s all-time leader, Lindsay Hoehns, who had 1525 kills at Twin Cedars.

The Lady Dutch head to the Newton tournament this afternoon.
