  1. A volleyball team consists of 6 players on the court. Looks weird to have just 4 on a team. Has that always been that way?

  3. I think the C/MW 2nd and 3rd teams would make it really far at a grass fours tournament.

  4. Was fortunate enough to see 7 of the First Teamers play this year. All of them had me shaking my head in appreciation, but Audrey Krajec had me also talking to myself–and anyone else around. In a great group, she stood out to me.

  5. Krajec is one of the best I’ve seen since I started following D III volleyball closely about 10 years ago.

    I have a few qualms with the AVCA teams, but Audrey isn’t one of them.
