TENNESSEE STATE VOLLEYBALL CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS PREDICTIONS

22 posts in this topic

Hard to argue with those predictions and thus I think the reason for the lack of responses. I've seen Baylor and Briarcrest this pre-season. They will be very difficult to beat. Brentwood Academy has a strong junior class so keep and eye on them.

 

Webb is Webb again.

 

As for D1, I think you will see 5 of the 8 AAA teams from last year returning to State. I think Hardin Valley takes Bearden's spot. I don't know what's going to come out of Memphis. Houston lost a lot. Wondering what Collierville, Bartlett, Germantown, and Arlington have. In middle TN Blackman appears to be a bit stronger. Ravenwood has a lot of talent and should push Franklin. Beech and Station Camp will be good this year too.

 

As for AA I think you could easily predict that all 8 teams from last year will return. Camden Central and Harpeth could make some noise though.

 

Single A....I'll go with your prediction for the title match.

I like Hardin Valley's chances also. If I'm not mistaken they have a couple girls from a K2 12 and under team I saw win a 14 1s club tourney up that way about 3 years ago. Should be sophs or jrs now. If that's them they should improve as the season goes on , not that they are bad now. Anyway come tourney time they might make some noise.

I saw lots of K2, KVA, Alliance, A5, Choo Choo, etc talent spread though out the tournament. Great volleyball especially for a tournament this early in the season. I would've like to have seen a power pool format like we saw at the NIT in Salt Lake City and at 18 Open JNC this past club season. It makes for a more competitive first day and those smaller programs don't take such a beating the first day. I don't think that is good for the beaters or the beatees.

South Greene in A

Page in AA

 

Harpeth Hall looks good but Baylor and Briarcrest are just so dominant.

As I thought, Hardin Valley is playing well. But they might not make it out of district. Then there's Farragut and Brentwood in the way. Brentwood gets their sophomore star hitter back from the US Team so they should be hitting another level soon.

Brentwood has all their players and is hitting their stride.......that's not good for the other teams.  The Bruins went to Atlanta this past weekend to play in the Southern Invitational and beat Baylor in the finals.

So we had two Tennessee teams in the finals of a big tournament in Atlanta?  There are some solid volleyball teams in that area.  That bodes well for Tennessee volleyball.  Congrats to both of those teams.  Will that make them favorites for the state championships in this year?  I would sure like to see an exciting and fun post-season.  Good luck to all of the teams that get into the playoffs starting with the district tournaments!

Anderson County has been hurt all year. Last week was the first week that they had their starters on the court together, both OH's missed at least 10 games, MH missed 15 and L was out over a month. They also lost a setter for the season, but the sophs and juniors stepped up. They are 11-1 with these players back and have wins over Hardin Valley, CAK and Sullivan Central this week. Maybe too young to challenge, they have 9 juniors and 4 sophs and 1 senior, but when they get excited and attack not a team play in the tournament when they are hot.

I as at Anderson County to watch my niece who plays at Oak Ridge. AC destroyed Maryville. If they beat CAK and HV earlier they are really playing well. AC really didn't get that emotional they were really solid. They only had two seniors, but they out played a bigger and more athletic Maryville team. I haven't seen Farragut, or anyone else but two or three OR games, but AC looked powerful.

How are everyone's predictions looking so far?  Brentwood looks as strong as ever so that's not good for other teams in the state.  With the majority of that team being sophomores and Brentwood Middle school team just finished their season with a  23-0 record (they did not lose a set all season), the lady Bruins will be a powerhouse for at least 6 more years with whats in their system.

What use to be a very competitive area ,Southeast TN , has fallen way down recently. Only Baylor in private school and Signal Mountain seem to be consistent anymore. Grace out of Chattanooga will fall off after Alexandria Smith leaves this year for MTSU. East Hamilton has a freshman who is pretty good but her dad says Bball is her favorite. Young lady could be very good with the right club. Nobody else stands out Ooltewah is down. And bond of the Bradley county teams can compete with Middle or Knox area. Been awhile since I've seen it this way.
