  1. New club team

    And I agree with all your posts above. It's about training, coaching, and competition within the age groups. The problem I've seen is that Nashville can compete against similar sized clubs in the younger age groups. Sometimes even with the big dogs like A5. But as they get older the lack of quality training, quality coaching, and having to fight to keep a spot on a team affects things greatly. It will fun to watch what impact TPV has on the dynamics here. Can they deliver on their training and team selection processes? Time will tell. The immediate benefit is that it is making the other clubs work harder than ever. Everyone wins in that scenario. It will also force some natural selection finally. CW had to combine their 17s and 18s as well as their 15s and 16s. Plus they lost some key people to TPV. So the wheels are already in motion. I look forward to watching how it all plays out on the travel courts this upcoming season.
  2. New club team

    If what you're hearing about the director is salacious. Then it is not true. That relates to another person within the SP historical tree. DD, the director of Tennessee Performance is not associated with anything personally or professionally negative. He coached the Sports Performance 161s. Tennessee Performance is directly affiliated with Sports Performance. This is, from my understanding, their third southern branch. Southern Performance out of Birmingham, will start their third season. Atlanta Performance is starting year two. And now Tennessee Performance is about to kick off their inaugural season. They will play out of the Field House. It will be interesting to see how this shakes out. Alliance took a hit in the younger ages with some talented girls leaving for TP. Not so much in the older age groups. I would imagine this new club will have a serious impact on Club West, however.
  3. AAA bracket is set

    Siegel's setter can get clean balls to her outside hitters.
  4. AA Sectional Matches

    I am just going to make this about the AA bracket now. Portland has a walk thru the first two matches. Conversely, Signal Mtn vs Catholic was a terrible draw for both teams. TSSAA has to do better than that. The winner gets an aggressive and talented Camden team in the second round. I'm going with a Portland vs. Signal Mtn championship with Sig Mtn winning it all.
  5. AAA bracket is set

    This will be interesting today. Ravenwood got the toughest first round match with Collierville. They should win. But then they get Siegel. As noted above, Siegel has a great libero and IMO the best defensive OH in MJ. I also agree though that their weak spot is blocking. Can Ravenwood take advantage of that? The one thing I've noticed is that the Raptors are very inconsistent. I think their libero is top notch as well. Big setter advantage to the Stars though. Regardless, I still see the championship match being Brentwood vs. Hardin Valley with the Bruins repeating.
  6. A State Tournament

    I like Summertown to win it all as well.
  7. 2017 Season underway

    You are correct. The difference though is that the old Wilco tourney was run by Brentwood. That one is dead. This is a reincarnation of that tourney. The coach at Summit started it about four years ago. Started small with games played at Summit and Spring Station. It's been growing every year. Franklin and Indy have been co-hosts as well for the past few years. I believe this is the first year it's been all under one roof at AGame. Could be wrong about that. But it's growing for sure.

    Great post. Pretty spot on. Especially about Siegel spreading the ball around more. Round robin part two with Brentwood, Ravenwood, and Page this week. Should go a long way to determining the seeding for the district tourney. Another middle TN team to keep an eye on is Portland. Won the Rocky Top Classic this past weekend. None of the big east TN teams were there, But beat a few out of state teams on the way to the title. Station Camp finished 5th at that tourney.
  9. Early Bird Results

    Ravenwood beat Hardin Valley in three.
  10. 2017 Season underway

    I agree. It will be a very interesting year for BA. Best middle combo in the state in my opinion. Siegel has a very strong junior class. In fact, they have the three essential elements to being a very good high school team: a strong setter, strong libero, and at least one hitter who can be counted on to put a ball down. Those players are two legacies in sophomore setter Sophia Bossong and junior libero Julia Poarch. The hitters are juniors Julia Wheeler ( TN Tech commit) and MaKenzie Jordan who is making her way back from a torn ACL last year. The only other teams I've seen so far this pre-season who have that trifecta, besides Brentwood, are Hardin Valley with seniors Alex Kirby (setter committed to Texas Tech), libero Izzy Mitchell (libero committed to Troy) and OH Mandy Prescott and Page with senior setter Claire Behan (committed to Jacksonville State) junior libero Becca Condo (committed to Wingate) and junior hitter Lanie Vantrease. Interesting thing about those four programs is that all their setters are at least six feet tall. That's not to say there aren't other programs out there who are also very strong in those three areas. Like I've mentioned, Houston is very good led by their senior setter KaLea Davis. And Ravenwood will be also be led by two legacies in senior OH Vic Cerino (committed to UTC) and junior libero Laura Knott. It will be interesting to see how the setting shakes out. Will be key for them. Time to get it started!

    Siegel and Brentwood Academy showed up. Siegel beat Briacrest in two and BA beat Siegel in two. Siegel did fall in two to BB's All Powerful Logan-less Bruins, 19 and 23. Signal Mountain under-performed IMO thus leaving AA wide open. Looking forward to seeing how things shakeout next week at the Sunsphere Showdown.

    If anyone needs to measure their tone around here it's you. I haven't seen one person not give Brentwood their proper due. We are all well aware that your all powerful Bruins will win AAA state again. We are also all well aware that Logan is a great player. So is Nicklin Hames. She just happens to be on the same US National team as Logan so chill with the rhetoric please. As for J. Hames, I think you're a little out of line. He has posted once and it was to clear up some pretty damaging rumors. He wasn't on here pumping the tires of his K2 girls. And I can tell you that K2 is a much different organization than what the J's were running in Nashville. So chill with the assumptions as well please.
  13. 2017 Season underway

    I have seen Olivia play and she is very good. Isn't Meredith B. on that team a pretty good setter? Logan is the one committed to Texas. Garrett is the Brentwood outside who got hurt in Orlando. She is done for the season. Garrett is committed to Purdue.

    HV does have a hammer of their own in Mandy Prescott. She can crush a ball. That said, they lost to Brentwood a few weeks ago before Logan left for her USA play. Logan will of course be back to help her team. As for AA, I am looking forward to seeing Signal Mountain on Saturday as well. I'll have a better idea as to their prospects. Catholic lost two great players.....
  15. 2017 Season underway

    Quick review of the Father Ryan playday: Brentwood is not the same team without Logan and Garrett. Still good, but more human. Brentwood Academy is going to make some noise. Very strong team. Houston is for real. Second time seeing them. Father Ryan is scrappy as expected. No hitters of note though. Looking forward to seeing Siegel this weekend at the Blastoff.
