Victory was doubly sweet for the Hamilton Southeastern Royals’ (Indiana) volleyball team this year.

On the heels of repeating as Class 4A Indiana state champ and stretching its win streak to an impressive 67 matches, HSE has been crowned as SBLive’s volleyball national champion for the 2023 season.

The Royals, who feature seven Division I commits, only dropped five sets all season. The back-to-back state titles, long win streak and domination of opponents were more than enough to rank them ahead of Mater Dei (Santa Ana, California), which won the CIF Open Division state title, but had two losses this season (43-2).

A good number of HSE’s players compete for national club powers Munciana and Munciana Indy.

“It’s an incredible honor,” said HSE senior outside hitter Lauren Harden, a Florida commit who recently won the Ms. Indiana Volleyball award after the Indiana All-Star match. “This team is a special one and one that will go down in history at HSE, so to see it pay off nationally is so incredibly amazing to see.”

The SBLive Power 25 national high school volleyball rankings include teams affiliated with state high school athletic associations in the state they compete in or those allowed to play affiliate high schools in their home state and beyond.

The rankings were released weekly throughout the 2023 volleyball season. Find the complete breakdown of the final SBLive Power 25 below.
