She only started playing club after her sophomore year, and didn't start at six rotations for Benet until last October."I was definitely a late bloomer," said Doyle, who will play next year at North Carolina.DeMaar, a junior at Glenbard West, did soccer until sixth grade. Dragged to her first volleyball tryout, she showed up in Converse sneakers and basketball shorts. Meg's grandpa Wayne DeMaar was the long-time baseball coach and AD at St. Charles High School, her dad played baseball and mom was a figure skater. Volleyball proved to suit Meg best."They tried to get me into skating when I was little," Meg said, "but my legs were too long."
