I didn't know they had ties in volleyball? As long as Pekin has Hannah Thompson I would go with the Dragons as repeat. Some nice returning players and depth. Looked like record wise the league was good last year...

Some tournament formats play 2 sets (instead of 3) in pool play matches. If each team wins a set, you have a tie.

Lady Birds' are having a great year so far.

Washington is bad FWIW. Might have something to do with a coach who had -0- experience playing or coaching the sport. The hire makes no sense at all. :XXblah-doh2

Limestone is off to a good start as well. I think they play Metamora on Thursday. Should be the best match this week.

Yes, huge game for both teams. Pekin still has Limestone left in the first round of conference play. So far it looks like those 3 teams will battle it out. We'll see if another jumps into the race.

It pains me to say this but you are correct. And some parents are questioning it also at the last board meeting.

Another parent associated with ISB Washington branch playing coach/administrator instead of sticking to his day job. All that advertising money given to the school must not be paying off. Hopefully someone in IPAVA is taking note.

Pekin blew two big leads in their last two matches to lose to Limestone - despite very talented team, looks like third or fourth place this year. Hats off to Limestone girls for coming back in both matches to win

She has 0 experience playing or coaching and it shows. Washington will finish at the bottom. She was hired bc of her husband.
