Brentwood Team Camp thoughts.....

Recommended Posts

A few quick thoughts from three days of watching a lot of volleyball. I didn't see every team play that attended (22 in all). But I did see some good volleyball this early preseason.

 

The two best teams I saw were Brentwood and Siegel. I think the folks at the Fieldhouse are still replacing some boards from the hits provided by BHS's KM and GJ. I think Siegel's only loss was to Brentwood.

 

The loudest match of the weekend was Houston vs. Collierville. I don't know who won as I was on another court but the intensity of that match rang throughout the building.

 

Ravenwood and Centennial were each without a key injured player. Both schools have a freshman as their backup varsity setter. So it was hard to get a feel for how good they can be.

 

Other than KK at Brentwood, the best setters I saw were from St. George's and Blackman. Franklin with their new coach looked good. Hard working cohesive team.

 

It was an overdose of volleyball but I am ready now for the season to start!

Brentwood and Siegel definitely look the best. Wasn't the Siegel coach an assistant at Brentwood several years ago? Both of these teams have great setters who do a great job of making great hitters look even better.

 

If Ravenwood and Centennial can bring their young setters along throughout the season, then both teams should be more consistent, but it will still be tough to compete with Brentwood and Siegel.

 

Blackman's setter is really good with a tall middle who can block, hit, and pass. This team did have another middle who was on crutches and did not play.

He was an assistant at BHS a few years ago. Wasn't that an awesome match especially so early in the season? You're absolutely right about both their setters. KK and JM are great. I forgot to mention TS from SHS was also putting holes in the floor. I think BHS didn't have one of their OH's bc of basketball. Could be wrong about that. The Bruins also had a player move in from Clarksville and she looked strong as well. I think that match was an early preview of the last AAA match of the upcoming season.

I don't see Siegel being in the state finals. They make alot of noise on CoachT but don't deliver when it counts. Too much parent involvement in coaching hires.

K2 if you don't see Siegel in finals then you haven't seen Siegel,Coach Robinson is the right fit for this senior loaded team,The match with Brentwood at Ensworth playday yesterday was awesome. If anyone wants to see these two battle, they will meet yet again at The Brentwood Blastoff at A-game,Saturday at noon.

Who's the tall girl they run that slide to for Brentwood. And who's recruiting her she hits it straight down really hard to block. She could play college right now. Tallest player they have. Anybody?

Thanks. Good for Brentwood not for the rest of the teams. Most impressive offensive weapon I've seen in a few years. Really like the way they bring her from the outside almost unnoticed til her approach is almost done pretty good setters they have. Overall best offensive teams I've seen this year. And I've seen most of the top teams from middle to east. Haven't seen to many from the west. Yet!

Brentwood is loaded with great middles. I saw Kaela doing the same thing as you described so I figured it was her you were talking about. The Bruins have three seniors, all great, but they are not going anywhere for a while.

i have seen every Siegel team play since the school opened and this is the most talented team they have had.   Not sure how they under perform every year.  They have never been good enough to win a state championship (mid 2000's they had a team that was good enough but a late injury changed all of that), yet they get to the state about every year and the final 4 several times. How is that under performing?   The simple fact is DB, Ravenwood and Brentwood were all better then them over the last 10 years at different times.   I hope the do well!
