Grunseth’s value to Gilman’s team this year came in her ability to adapt and play multiple positions. Never having set before, she started the year sharing those duties with Madisyn James and then took over as the setter in a 5-1 offense when injuries forced the team to shuffle its lineup. She filled the left front position when Syryczuk missed her match.
