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.

Sounds like a great match. Metamora and Limestone are tough places to play at.

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.
