  1. Please click link for more information regarding "Tennessee's Finest" Coaching Clinic on Sunday, December 13th from 1:00-5:00. https://bsbproduction.s3.amazonaws.com/portals/1605/4th%20annual%20coach%20clinic%20flier.indd.pdf
  2. That Tom Pazko could be hired to coach a HS team is laughable...Might be a good coach but this individual might last a week at a HS... He totally takes the joy of the game away from every player he touches... Good news is that this sport IS red hot all over and realistically the evolution of clubs throughout the state is a big part... Volleyball scholarships are approaching basketball #'s for girls and this can only be a good thing!!!
  3. Lauren Dorrell transferred to Father Ryan from Houston, TX Best player in state next year hands down
  4. Page playing well ...Harpeth is not bad either
  5. It is truly an outrage...Don't just let the 38K the TSSAA made be the only monetary value here. Middle gets a huge % of revenue from the State which means all these hotel rooms and meal sales tax will still provide MTSU plenty of revenue for doing NOTHING!!!! Chris Massaro (sp) owes all of the participants a personal apology along with the Basketball coaches at Middle.. It's really no surprise little man Rick Ensell would block this being played at Murphy Center as he never allowed Shelbyville HS to even PLAY volleyball during his reign of terror there ...... No issue aimed at the Mboro high schools at all. They're just taking what is presented to them... At the end of the day it is an absolute slap in the face to the sport itself... Teams if you can stay in hotels down the road in Davidson County!!!
  6. goodpasture no brainer in single A the comp is totally awful same answer in D-2 A Webb will have no problem AAA-brentwood Siegel will play twice during event look for Siegel to defend their home court AA- CAK should win but there's a sleeper out there D2- AA All 4 teams solid any could win
  7. Very few volleyball players enroll in January... Play club senior year is required but only a few leave HS early...Last chance for it to be "fun"

    Choo Choo Classic

    Farragut beats Blessed Trinity in Finals after beating Tennessee High in semis. Blessed Trinity (Atlanta) avenged an earlier loss to Father Ryan in the other semi-final in what was most certainly the best match of the day... 25-23, 23-25, 15-13..... Overall pretty weak tournament top to bottom but as usual the best teams ended up in the last 4 spots... Now the real seasons begin with district play cranking up this week.... Good Luck to all....
  9. No way I would ever have a child not play for their High School... College prospect or not, playing for one's high school will make life long memories that playing club will not bring. I have three players with Division 1 conference championship banners hanging in schools but each of mine still cherishes the State High School championship banners the most. Totally agree club is the venue to get recruited for college but the lessons learned in most quality HS programs extend into the college careers of these girls. Don't know any of the Basketball or Baseball players who don't play for their HS teams. Most College coaches I know would tell you not playing HS is totally selfish.
  10. For me this is the "start" of the volleyball season. Teams will be less likely to experiment so the 25+ teams at A-game this weekend will be an interesting look into the regular season. Film at 11 !!!
  11. I don't understand why you would get on Jerry... He is great guy who knows volleyball and his players love him... what else would you want from a volunteer coach who has 4 boys playing other sports while he continues to help out kids who need coaching... get off his case... totally unfounded and totally wrong...

    PHargis RIP

    Tennessee HS volleyball lost a true friend and supporter this week when Mr Phil Hargis of Nashville passed away. As you look through the many threads here on the subject of Volleyball he started many of then... Even if you didn't agree with his opinions (and he didn't mind) he was a huge supporter of this great sport. Phil Hargis, may you rest in peace...
  13. Congrats to both Coach Larkin and Coach Sneed... it's nice to have two great teachers and individuals who work hard at it with their girls everyday! While I am proud of the Lady Irish, both coaches would be the first to tell you they still have a long way to go, but I will put these two up against any coach around. It wasn't a "big name" hire at the time that some people expected but it is clear the administration did their due diligence and got it right!! GO LADY IRISH!!!
  14. October 7, 2009 Siegel takes 7-AAA regular-season volleyball title Lady Stars fend off Riverdale to win decisive match BY TOM KREAGER [email protected] Riverdale pushed Siegel to the brink Tuesday night in both volleyball team's District 7-AAA regular-season finale. But the Lady Stars pushed back. Siegel fought off a furious charge to hold off Riverdale to win 19-25, 25-11, 24-26, 25-23, 15-6 at Siegel to complete a perfect district regular season. The win marked the first time all season that Siegel didn't beat its district opponent in three games. "(Riverdale) pushed us," Siegel junior Brooke Faulkner said. "We wanted it, but they wanted it too." Siegel earned the top seed in next week's District 7-AAA tournament at Riverdale with the win. Riverdale is the second seed. Riverdale (26-17 overall, 8-2 in District 7-AAA) was in position to win the contest. Three Stephanie Click solo blocks in a four-point swing gave Riverdale a 23-21 lead in Game 4. But Faulkner ended Riverdale's run with a kill before serving out the next three points to force a Game 5. "They are definitely after us," Siegel first-year coach Ann Mullins said. "I told my girls we are definitely going to have to go to work. We're going to have to play these girls every time we play them." Siegel trailed 4-3 in the fifth game when Olivia Nolan served seven consecutive points, including two aces. Faulkner had three kills in the run. "My kids just came out ballin' in the fifth game," Mullins said. "They played great defense. They didn't let anything hit the floor. (Riverdale) didn't either. But we got a couple breaks and didn't let up." Faulkner led Siegel (32-5, 10-0) with 19 kills. Molly Reidy added 12 kills. Heather Vandiver added four blocks. Setters Becca Cutter and Caroline Gay dished out 19 assists apiece. Click led the Lady Warriors with 24 kills and seven blocks. Chelsea Ross added 12 kills and two aces. Kirsten Taylor had 11 kills and two aces. Setter Rachel Gocken had 34 assists. "It was like a chess match against Ann Mullins," Riverdale coach Jerry Snider said. "I know I used four different lineups. She did too. We were trying to do what we could to get an advantage somewhere in the match." Siegel played without senior Katie Horenkamp, who is out with an anterior cruciate ligament tear. Horenkamp provided a big presence at the net in their first meeting — a 3-0 Siegel win. Teammate Megan Watson replaced Horenkamp at the net while Jacquelyn Leeman played in the back row for her. "(Siegel) had dominated volleyball here for the last six years," Snider said. "For us to go from sixth place last year to coming here and having a chance to tie them for the district championship, I think we established that our program can play with them. "They've got a great coach and great players, but so do we. The thing I told my girls is that we still haven't played our best volleyball." --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  15. Congrats to Siegel on a great win, must have been a battle... looks like they will hook up a couple of more times this year!
