I have not seen Hune-Fogg play but I am familiar with a couple of their key players.  They definitely look the part, I hope they can play the part.  The size or Hune-Fogg will be tough for Nolensville but I think they have enough all around defense to get by.  It'll be fun you watch those two teams play

You are correct, they def. 'look' like a really good team when they walk into the gym. I didn't think they 'played' as good as they 'looked' but they are still def. solid for a AA team.

Hi, Apostle. Can you point me to where I said Brentwood is not deep? I'd like to take that comment back, because I actually think Brentwood is one of the deepest programs in the state. That JV team (which would beat most AAA varsity teams) will be largely unchanged next year. There is nobody on Varsity to replace, other than the setter. That group should yawn their way to another undefeated season unless a bunch of kids decide not to play high school volleyball anymore and "train". (Train for what?)

What I tried to say, and thought I had, was that this year's varsity team lacks depth compared to previous Brentwood championship teams. I stand by that. You surely remember (unless you were out of state at the time) when Barb lost Garrett Joiner, the consensus TN player of the year to a knee-injury. Most teams could not have withstood that kind of setback. But Brentwood just rolled everybody anyway because it turned out she had an even better player, future Olympian Logan Eggleston.

Previous Brentwood champion teams had multiple future D1 kids not only on the court, but on the bench as well,. This team has some D1-level kids, but they do not have backups for those kids. Back in July, considering individual injury histories and looking at the way-too-many games these kids play (compared to volleyball hotbed areas like California, Florida, the Midwest, etc.), I thought there was a very good chance that one or more of the key kids would not make it through the season without missing significant time. If they had lost either left side, either middle, or their setter for any amount of time, they wouldn't be where they are. Yes, Shae went down for a bit recently, and one middle was hurt for a bit mid-season, but nothing major, nothing extended. Previous Brentwood teams could have handled that, and had to. Not this one.

Put it this way... if Brentwood had had the season Siegel did (health-wise), they would have had the season Siegel did (results-wise).

The Ravenwood situation... You and TT seem to think this is entirely on the coach, and that she is derailing an otherwise promising high school season / program for club purposes. The pettiness and cynicism you're projecting here is breathtaking. I can't believe you actually believe what you are writing.

If you think this is a weak Brentwood program (83-3 combined varsity and JV record) then you must have a very poor opinion on the rest of the teams in Tennessee except for Siegel and Ravenwood who you prop on a pedestal.  I'll give you credit, Siegel has been the Rutherford county champs for many years now and Ravenwood has been the WilCo runner up for several years too.

 

Could you imagine what Brentwood could accomplish if we had any depth at all??

Are you just trolling now? Somehow you took "Brentwood has one of the deepest programs in the state" and hallucinated that into "Brentwood has no depth at all". So I'll try one last time, and if you choose to ignore, misunderstand, or mis-state what I'm saying, that's on you: Brentwood does not have the depth previous Brentwood teams have had. That is not meant as an insult to you, but rather as a hat-tip to those teams. 

As to my poor opinion of the rest of the state, maybe so. Tell me this... you beat Wilson Central to earn your state bid. How would they have done in 12-AAA? Or for that matter, 7-AAA?

Credit where it's due: great start for Brentwood today, keeping it clean and efficient.

Ravenwood has their work cut out for them.

Nolensville on the court now, looking like they've been here before.

I give up. I didn't realize I this was yet another conversation about club volleyball. 

Kids are competing hard, giving it everything they have, this is what you train for. Congrats to all who have made it so far, good luck to everyone today.
