Big hitters get the most glory in volleyball and for good reason. Few things feel as satisfying as rising up and putting the ball away with authority. It's pretty dang fun to watch, too.

Here are 15 ridiculous kills from 2016.

1. France's Earvin N'Gapeth got tricky with this behind-the-back swing.

2. This list would be seriously lacking without National Player of the Year Sarah Wihilte and this down-the-line kill that sent Minnesota to the final four.

3. Kadie Rolfzen got a ton of points for Nebraska during the 2016 season, but this one was special.

4. We never get tired of watching Foluke Akinradewo run the slide.

5. Max Holt is unstoppable with a good high set in the middle.

6. Phil Dalhausser loves a good overpass.

7. It's never good to only have one blocker up against Texas' Micaya White.

8. Pac-12 Player of the Year Courtney Schwan packs some heat.

9. Watch out for Florida's Rhamat Alhassan.

10. Kathryn Plummer helped Stanford punch its ticket to the final four with this swing.

11. Minnesota's Alexis Hart doesn't hold back with this swing against Wisconsin.

12. A long match versus Ohio State in the NCAA regional semifinals ended with this Haleigh Nelson kill.

13. This Karsta Lowe swing is so fast, it's hard to see.

14. Florida's lefty opposite Alex Holston has a killer down-the-line shot.

15. A great slow-mo shot of an Emily Stockman kill.
