  1. ACE out of Anderson County has made a powerful statement hiring long time College and High School coach Lorri Johnson, Paul Brock’s mentor, and Carmen Foster who is in every sports hall of fame TN has to offer. Coach Foster started club volleyball in TN with the Smoky Mountain Athletic Club of Knoxville, trained the Haymes who split off to run a money making club. What is the cost?
  2. Just read the other thread. Thanks for the info, TSSAA still has not updated the brackets btw! Also, do you know why Coach Garland was removed as coach, I had a long talk with him at state a couple three years ago and he was nice, and I thought his team looked great. If I remember he lost to a Christian Academy who had a 6'6" player.
  3. This really surprises me. I saw HV at the Knoxville tournament and knew they would be good, but was this an upset? Do you have any information about Heritage? How did Farragut fall to 4th? Don't they do a double elimination format that takes several days, if so who beat them and scores? How does Heritage stack up against HV? Can Oak Ridge beat Heritage? What about the tri cities teams? This got interesting.
  4. What happened to Farragut? Wow, I did not see that coming. I knew HV was strong after watching them at the Sunsphere tourney, but who is Heritage? I don't know anything about them.
  5. Surprise, TSSAA still hasn't updated the bracket and Regionals are tomorrow. Who won the Knoxville District. I assume it was Farragut and HV. Also, can Morristown or TN high beat either team in Sectionals? In MT we have Wood, Raven and Siegal. Page lost a 5 set classic against Ravenwood, rough on them, and all of us, them moving up to AAA. Ravenwood is getting better and will be a strong opponent in the Regionals, and we are banged up. Siegal won't be challenged, so the 5 teams referenced are it. I thought HV looked great early in the year. Good luck to all.
  6. 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!
  7. I love that Portland is getting some love! They are a really good AA team! Signal Mountain has a strong hitter but is not in Portland's class. I also want to weigh in on Catholic. I saw them at the Knoxville K2 tournament and they were not nearly as strong as they were last year. They had a really strong hitter, mentioned on this board who is young but strong. However, the setting is not good. The setter from last year should set all the way around. They also freeze out number 4 and go to the weaker hitters. I don't think they won a game in Saturday? They miss a lot of serves, and are slow. Portland is better. What happened to the coach that was there before the two K2 guys?
  8. Hames is Knoxvilles best player but I would pick this girl as number 2, just nothing around her!
  9. Just finished a tough Knoxville tournament. I made a point to watch the Knoxville teams. Obviously Webb and the Wood won't resemble what you see now in October with Logan and Hames back. Harden Valley looked better than I thought. Farragut was way down. I saw the big girl from Catholic. She was the best non Webb Knoxville player I saw. Cunningham was the name. She just doesn't have anything around her. She was the entire team. Weak setting and no other hitters. She was the only one that could hit the ball. They got thumped by a weak team because they went away from her. Baylor and siegel looked strong. Good tournament.
  10. I am heading out late. Is the convention center the new one just up Cumberland Avenue, or the old one in the hotel? I am looking forward to see The Knoxville teams.
  11. 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.
  12. Coach actually pre dates club! When club first hit Nashville it was not the money grab it became. We had an asst "J" and another "J" who made a mess of everything. Much like what I see K2 doing they tirelessly self promoted and then would have parents remove high school coaches to put in their people. Today club and high school work well together, but it took 10 years and some growing pains to get there. We had what I called the "club wars" My problem with this board is that they push K2 tirelessly and if you speak out against them then you get trashed. Logan is the top player end of discussion. Hames is good, but not in Logan's class, no one from Hardin Valley could touch her or Garrett, and would struggle to make our starting 6. If Cunningham is number 4 she is strong, but other than her Catholic has nothing.
  13. In order to get a topic going that isn't started by the K2 folks, with Garrett out Brentwood is vulnerable. I am interested in who you think has the best chance to win AAA, and why.
  14. I went to the schools web page, is she number 4 in the picture?
