K2ruth

Catholic has Knoxville's Top Player

She is fantastic.  And has had a great year.  The problem is that there is a K2 mom, high up the food chain, and who played a key role in getting another K2 coach hired to replace a great coach.  The new guy is a really nice man, but they have daughters on the team and some players are not getting the push they need.  The coaches don't vote for the MVP they let the coach of the district champion select the MVP from his team.

K2ruth, I have a question for you. Can you be more specific about your complaint regarding this particular player?

Reason I ask... here are her current attacking numbers, according to (another website I am not allowed to name on this forum because they also focus on High School Sports):

239 kills, 126 errors, on 673 attempts, for a hitting % of .168 (across 64 sets)

This puts her 4th in the state in attempts per set, at about 10.5. That is a HUGE volume of attempts, especially considering the somewhat pedestrian efficiency number (.168 isn't very good, really). On paper, anyway, It seems she is getting plenty of love and attention from her setters. And her team is having a lot of success, with a legitimate shot at winning AA.

So I am not sure (from admittedly, quite a distance) what your concern is on her behalf.

Yep, a .168% hitting percentage is low.  Too many errors.  About the parental involvement.  If that is the case, that is why a lot of good coaches are probably no longer coaching.  Too much interference and not enough support and cheering on.  Such is the new world!

Andrew was a great coach.  Also a great teacher of the game.  He was removed in the middle of the season, one that they made it to the state semi finals, because of two moms with strong ties to K2.  Strange how the K2 coach who coached these mom's daughters who had zero high school coaching experience becomes the coach.  Strange?

Ruth has posted in the past as though she had absolute knowledge of a situation regarding K2 and coaching high school teams and it turned out she had no idea what she was talking about.  I take everything she posts with a grain.  Please stop posting rumors and innuendo and stick to topics of which you have actual fact. I have no affiliation with this high school nor with this club, I just get tired of reading all of her conspiracy theory threads.

Could not agree more with you.  K2 has been proven to have no clue.  K2's director has been on these boards calling K2ruth out on the lies (I'm not calling it mis-information, they were lies)

Agree 100%.  There was a time when this message board was really good and supportive of HS volleyball.  Now, it is almost vacant, in large part because it became so toxic a few years ago--especially from Knoxville folks.    You can't believe anything he/she posts.    On a side note...cannot wait for the State Tournament to kick off!

Do you know who won AAA Knoxville?  TSSAA still hasn't updated the bracket?  I am going to start a AAA thread.

Also, after reading this, why did Coach Garland get dismissed?  I remember it happening in the middle of the season but they let him finish out the year and almost won the state championship so I figured it was a parent issue.   I always liked him and the former Catholic Coach, Coach Jones.

Any info on the Knox winner would be great, I assume it was Farragut and HV.  Good luck to all!
