    New club team

    As another volleyball dad, I hear all the talk as well. The 'choosing a club/invite/tryout' process has been very stressful for my family in the past. It is an ever-evolving process. Clubs come and clubs go. What is hot one day will be ice cold the next. Just wait. In another 5 years TPV will have split into 2-3 other 'new' clubs. I honestly haven't heard many gushing things about them except the rumors from high-level players that are getting perks. From the people I know who went there it seems like it's a little much for the young/developing player. People are flocking there cause it's the new/hot thing, but when it cools down the numbers will fall, coaches will separate...its all good...like you said, Everybody just needs to do what is best for their own kid. I would love to send my kid to Alliance but I live 40+ miles away and I don't want my teenager making that drive 3-4 days a week. Not to mention the cost. My oldest is not a D1 prospect or I might reconsider. She has been contacted by DIII and NAIA schools and so we are just fine at the smaller club we have chosen where we get lots of personal attention and she will have fun and continue to learn and improve.

    Not much of a surprise, Brentwood rolls in 3. Only lost 1 set all tourney.

    Congrats to Portland who left no doubt they were the best team in AA!

    Congrats to state champs Loretto. I have thought for the last month or so they were the best team in single A, and they proved it in this tournament. After getting torched in set one by Sale Creeks very good middle hitting, they re-adjusted, put the block on her and spread the ball around themselves getting 4 hitters into double-digit kills.

    Clifford you were right about the Sale Creek middle. Little, but effective. Super quick swing!

    That sounds AWESOME. Love hearing stories like that. East Hamilton played their hearts out and beat a good Camden team twice. CONGRATS!

    I admit it would be a cool thing to see someone else win one now and again, but I don't think its not gonna happen this year. Bruins in 3 is my prediction.

    Especially after they have done so very well in much of the sports scene. I know they have won state titles in like 5 or 6 sports.

    Yes Div II. Not sure of classification. Grace Christian Franklin also moving for 2019. Columbia Academy and Trinity Christian (Jackson) probably won't be far behind. I think these are the last 4 private holdouts left in Div 1.

    I saw Sale Creek play at the Mid TN Classic back in Aug? early Sept? and don't remember anyone really standing out, but completely understand that most teams are LIGHT years away from what they were at the beginning of the season. I know a friend at Hickman Co. said she indeed absolutely torched them today. As I said above, since losing in round 1 they really have seemed to come alive.

    Well, I think everyone (including Camden themselves) thought they would do better in this tourney than they did. East Hamilton really had their number, and I for one, really under-estimated them. (EH) Portland and Knoxville Cath seem to easily be the two best teams in the AA tourney... and what a classic they had earlier today that sets up an epic final tomorrow! It's gonna be a battle...Can't wait to watch that one! Since this is the last year for Knoxville Cath in Division 1-AA I am assuming they are gonna be ALL IN for this - their last shot at a state title in this division. Portland would love nothing more than to spoil that party!

    Yep, heartbreaker for DB being up 2 and then losing 3 in a row including that wide margin in set 5! That was the 2nd game of the day where someone came from 2 down to win (Loretto vs Watertown the other) siegel stole a set from Brentwood earlier today, but every other set was way out of reach. I don't see any reason why Brentwood does anything but win in 3 tomorrow.

    Wow, I had to leave the house tonight and missed all the updates til now. I really feel for Watertown after the way they played against Loretto. I'm sure they are heartbroken, especially to be eliminated without winning a set against Sale Creek. This sure sets up an interesting final with Loretto and Sale Creek. Since losing in round one to Loretto 3-1, Sale Creek blew through the elimination round WITHOUT LOSING A SET in 4 games. So, even though they are probably exhausted, they seem to be on a mission. Look forward to watching the final tomorrow!

    It must have been some match! Wish I could have seen it. I have seen Loretto pull the 3 set win after being down 2 before. They did it in sectionals last year vs Harpeth. I figured they would win, but surprised it was that close. Watertown has really impressed me with this game. Last year was the first time they made it to the state tourney and quite honestly I felt like they were not as good as their record. They didn't really play in the 'big' tournaments this year and come from a pretty weak district/region. I didn't know if they would have 'it' to make it very far in state. I was wrong. They are gritty and well-coached. What they lack in power, they make up for in defense. Their Libero is legit. I'm guessing it will be Watertown vs Sale Creek which should be a good game. I predict a Loretto/Watertown rematch for the state title. I look forward to watching that game tomorrow!!!!

    Reign of purple I have to know what is going on at this Loretto/Watertown match! Loretto must be wiped playing the schedule they have compared to W'Town, but with each set going to extra points it seems like a dogfight, but honestly am surprised at the outcome of these two sets!
