I agree with you devotedvbfan, except I know personally that, at least for Hume-Fogg, they did not underestimate Sullivan South coming into the tournament. we had heard about them and knew they would be a great team. Just wasn't their day when it came time for championship and Sullivan outplayed HFA. was the closest match out of any of the championship matches that day I believe. You are definitely right about Sullivan's heart though. I still can't believe that comeback against CAK. was a great tournament.

Knights fan, wasn't directing that comment about underestimating South at you. You have been nothing but class in all your posts. Hope these two teams are fortunate enough to meet again next year!!

I didn't think you were devotedvbfan, I just wanted to make sure people knew that HFA wasn't one of the teams that underestimated y'all. Thank you, you have also had a lot of class in your posts too. I also hope they meet again. I know HFA will be looking for revenge lol.

how many seniors are on sullivan south? I think #9 was a senior but not sure. HFA keeps two of their good hitters but loses #10 (best hitter) and libero and a middle blocker, but has decent replacement and still good middle hitter, outside hitter, and setter. I know CAK keeps some good players including big girl. 

Yes, #9 Riley Milhorn is a senior as are South's 2 middles, one right side and one setter so they certainly lose a lot this year and as you know Riley is a special player who will be missed greatly.    Of course, they lost a lot from last year's team that finished 3rd in AAA - two starting middles, one outside, right side, and libero and that turned out OK   :) .  And they lost a lot from the team the year before that that finished 4th in AAA (middle, setter, libero).    So hopefully the beat goes on.    As for next year several girls return who played huge roles on this years team and there is some younger talent on the bench and coming up through the ranks that will hopefully develop as it has in years past.    Seeing the players mature and improve is what makes it fun!   Who knows maybe we will see you again next year!

Congratulations to SS and HF. They played great and deserved to be in the finals. I read a lot of chatter on here and was expecting much more from CAK. They were talented, and BIG, but were uninspired. Their coach looked like he was scared, and was extremely unemotional. SS and HF were exciting and competitive. Playing the tall player on the right was odd. We just went away from her. 9 from South was amazing. I watched the 5 game match with CAK and SS out coached CAK, and she got the team fired up and made changes that helped her team, in contrast the CAK bench was quiet and made no adjustments.

 

We should be good next year, and so should HF. Great job SS!

Congratulations to ALL of the teams that made it to the state tournament.  What a treat for all of the players and the coaches to be in the Murf.  Savor and make the most of it, because you never know if you will have another shot at it again.  Sullivan South had a great year and they certainly deserve their win.  Way to go Hume Fogg, super year for those girls and their coach.  CAK might not have met some expectations, but they were certainly in the mix for winning the whole thing.  When we look at the whole year, not a bad place to finish compared to most teams who were home a long time ago.  Parents, players, and coaches, always keep things in perspective.  Volleyball is a great sport but more than that; a fun game to play.  Keep spiken em till next season.  Can't wait!
