Catholic has Knoxville's Top Player

Recommended Posts

Cunningham at Knox Catholic has emerged as Knoxville's top player.  Not yet a senior, she has emerged as a force.  If her supporting cast will step up to follow her leadership no one in East TN will challenge them.  Lack of a top tier setter will limit her to a degree, but she can hit from backrow which will cover the lack of depth.  She will need a teammate to carry her bag and another to bring her water because she is going to be doing all the heavy lifting.  She is a once in a decade type of talent.

We are coming to Knoxville this weekend.  I am looking forward to seeing her play.  Does Catholic have anybody to go with her?  Who are the other top teams in Knoxville?  I see where St Joseph's from South Carolina is coming, they are an experienced team.

I agree on Hames, but did not include her because I didn't think she would play this season because of her USA commitment.  

I think Catholic should do like Berean Christian does with CF and set her all 6 positions.  Catholic does not have any hitters other than OC and it would make sense to just set her the majority of the time like the do Corey at BC and focus on defense. I am afraid the "politics" may limit her touches to a degree.

Last week the lack of offense was exposed on Saturday.  Once teams get a look at Catholic, it is not hard to make adjustments.  I realize that a couple of the moms got the coach they wanted hired, but surely they realize that there needs to be some changes and it can't all be about their daughters, can it?

I got to watch the Catholic vs Anderson County match last night!  I new people with granddaughters, and daughters, on best sides so it was fun.

AC played great starting 4 freshman, losing 3-1.  I thought the ref was a little biased towards Catholic, but Catholic was an older more experienced team and deserved the win.  Number 4 is clearly their best player and when they quit setting her for stretches they struggled.  It was a well played and competitive match!

How did the Catholic coaches not select Betty as the District's top player.  Does one mom have this much control?

K2, you realize that all the district coaches vote on that....right?    Mom's don't typically get to vote for all district.   Typically you can't vote for your own players either.

Clifford speaks the truth. Coaches can only nominate their kids. Or not... you can't nominate your entire team, and some of those 3rd and 4th decisions are not easy.

Once the nominees are on the table, the other district coaches determine how everything shakes out in the end. So I see 3 possibilities:

1. Catholic, it turns out, does NOT actually have Knoxville's best player. In fact, Catholic does not even have AA District 3's best player.

2. AA District 3 coaches are idiots, or there is some political motive against the player or program.

3. Catholic moms control not only the coaches at Catholic, but, in fact, every coach in the District.

 

Not having seen any of the teams or players in question, I defer to the rest of you. That said, if Cunningham is as good as you (and, to be fair, some others) have said, Catholic will make noise in the playoffs, and she'll get her due. I'm sure she'd rather be All-State than AA District 3 PoY.
