  1. Completely unacceptable that they are playing at Siegel. There are plenty of other options. But this has been going on for, what, 12-14 years? It's ridic. Brentwood will win in 3. Talent wins.
  2. I love Houston's coach. I think she is one of the best 4-5 in the state. She does an incredible job. Give me Maryville, Goodpasture, Houston as 3 of the best at the state tournament. Cookeville's coach has also really built something special, which is not easy to do in cookeville.
  3. such an incredible program. that was a great match. GP coach is as good as it gets. That setter makes that team go. Def the best player on the court
  4. Crushing loss for Station Camp. Wow. What a match
  5. wow Science Hill got hammered by Cookeville. Good gracious. Anyone watch that match?
  6. Nolensville would win state with or without her in my opinion. They are a very solid and balanced team. Love everything about them. They would have probably finished second in 9AAA this year too. I hope they win it again.
  7. had no idea portland had an injury. I really hate to hear that.
  8. 15 titles is completely mind boggling. So happy for Houston. They have had some very tough State Tournaments in the last decade or so. They represented the West well. Another fun HS season has come and gone. Hard to believe.
  9. agree with station Camp . Siegel vs Bwood in the finals. Brentwood will win in 3.
  10. I remember so many of those good AC teams. Great program. Hope they can make a run. Who is the coach there now?
  11. what position does she play? (for Ravenwood)
  12. where can the pools be found?
  13. are Siegel and Brentwood healthy?
  14. who is the blackman coach?
  15. It is ridiculous. I would rather my daughter have been less skilled and play high school, then to be slightly more skilled and not. I blame parents more than anyone else. I would never allow anyone to steer me into making decisions for my daughter that I don't agree with. If the high school coach is awful/hateful etc, that is a reason to consider not playing. But that doesn't appear to be the issue.
  16. is Siegel healthy? I saw a post earlier about that. Can't wait to hear how that match goes.
  17. completely agree osage. I think she is actually better than the exiting Lib. and one of the top 3-4 in the state. She just doesn't get to Lib in club because she plays some OH. really good player.
  18. I would love to think BHS won't win the state, but I tend to agree with TT. I do think SHS will be--once again--in the final 4 and possibly final game. I've never actually thought Siegel could win the state championship, just hopeful it's someone other than Wilco. I long for the days with DB, Farragut, Germantown etc brought legit title contenders to the state.
  19. I like your style Apostle. The 14’s team backed into the gold, didn’t have a winning match/set record but should have finished 3rd and The core group was the mental toughness, winning mindset and leadership that 16’s lacked? This is such a ridiculous take. Yet they didn’t have that while at Alliance according to your comments? This was strictly and only about the ability to play the game of volleyball. You took the best OH and Setter in the state-kudos to TPV. You worked at it, and got them. You deserve that credit. The other “core group” (not the Lib) was just pieces. You put the OH and Setter back on that 16 alliance team and I’ll bet they could have found a way to finish...what was it? 20th? You didn’t take the mental toughness or leadership from the 15’s team You took the best talent This argument is tired and will be the last time I comment on it. I hope TPV and Alliance excel. I hope both clubs improve. I hope Alliances leadership pulls their head out of the sand. I’ve said some things on here that I regret, but to act like TPV is superior is tired. THEY ARE DOING A GOOD JOB, just like Alliance has/had for many many years
  20. None of the Tennessee Clubs can compete in open. TPV, Ethos, Alliance, K2--none. It sucks.
  21. Completely agree TT. But you can’t replace the exposure of the open championship. It changed my daughters recruitment. Literally overnight.
  22. The debate on “open”. If you have recruitable kids. That have div 1 (any division 1) aspirations. You have to play open.
  23. They finished 5th 2 years ago I think-they def made the gold. I could be wrong. But this group is way way more talented. I honestly loved this TPV team. Best LIb, OH and setter in the state. The other OH and RS were so fun to watch. I just want TN volleyball to show up. I want all our clubs to be better. I was too critical earlier. I really Though they were a top 6 team in this tournament. I didn’t get to a lot of the alliance teams this year but they are not strong. The 16 team had maybe 1-2 legit ones players on It. A very weak team. I thought the 15s had a chance to be better. Overall. I feel the alliance teams finished where they should. They are average at best skill wise.
  24. Let me step back. I’m coming off way to harsh. I was very hopeful TPV would make the gold. I think they are certainly talented enough. I am disappointed
