Volleyball State Polls
Poll is out Monday; comments are added for Tuesday release. If you have notes to add, please email; firstname.lastname@example.org Comments
Comments: Sorry for the two week hiatus, a water soaked laptop left me preparing the poll on my phone and comments were too much to work but comments are back.
Observation notes. head to head is important in terms of ranking so if I miss, please need me a note. Beating someone who beat someone is not as critical. For example in a who beat who scenario: Class 6A top ranked Dallas Highland Park lost to Prestonwood who lost to Cornerstone who lost to The Woodlands who lost to Argyle who lost to El Paso Coronado who lost to El Paso Franklin who lost to El Paso Americas who lost to Wall to lost to Midland Christian who lost to Blum. Blum is an extremely well coached team that is ranked second in Class 1A. Volleyball fans do not reasonably think Blum would beat Dallas Highland Park, however, that is the danger of using the who beat who argument.
Conroe’s magical run came to an end after 32 straight victories as the formerly number one Tigers were swept by district rival and traditional powerhouse The Woodlands 25-14, 25-15, 25-20. The row does not get easier in the tough district that includes Grand Oaks and College Park. Northwest, Celina, Iola, Highland Park and Cypress Ranch have all been playing exceptionally well recently and there are some programs making that push forward. Bushland, Bridgeland, Katy Tompkins, Farmersville, Beckville, Jewett Leon and both Fayetteville and Blum are playing well.
District starts in the next ten days for 94 percent of the tmeas in Texas. Good luck to all.
