  1. Did you watch the Hope/Calvin match?!?! Comments? Thoughts?

  2. Watched a good percentage of it. Great volleyball in a great setting. Two awesome setters feeding very talented hitters. Not much separated the two teams. Hope had a much better block than I’ve seen in the recent past. Even though Hope added yet another strength, Calvin still won. That says a lot.

    Both are legit title contenders. Loaded region this season. But I don’t have to tell you that.

    I assume you watched it. What did you think?
