  1. a dominant player at this level, wondering if she shouldn’t be playing in division 1. certainly has the size. its a mismatch on just about every swing she takes.

  2. I’m sure there are a handful of D III women who could plat D I ball if they wanted to. There’s more to life that a 4-year D I volleyball career…and if you read the story below, I think you’ll see why some young and talent athletes choose the D III option

  3. I have not seen Maggie Kamp play as often as some others — probably 15-18 matches in three years — but my favorite part of her game is her competitiveness.

    Talented for sure, but it’s her drive that pushes her slightly above most of her peers. I almost enjoy watching her struggle a bit and respond more than watching her roll through a match.

  4. Separate thread…what are your thoughts about this year’s finals?

    I think it goes chalk all the way tomorrow! I like Emory, WSP, and Hope to win in straight sets. Calvin over CNU in 4.

    Semis: Emory in 4, Hope in 4

    Finals: Emory in 5

  5. I also like the higher ranked teams tomorrow.

    I think the winner of a presumptuous UWSP/Emory semifinal match will take the title. I go back and forth on that one. I picked Emory to win in the preseason. I picked Emory to win once the field was announced. But if Loos is back, I’m not sure Emory beats UWSP.

  6. You aren’t very high on the MIAA are you? You didn’t have either school getting to Newport News

  7. Nothing to do with the MIAA and everything to do with me not knowing what I’m talking about.

  8. Uh huh….you run a kick arse blog like this…and then you claim not to know anything. I’m not buying that for a second!! LOL

  9. Well, one reason my MIAA picks were incorrect is I selected a minor upset in the first round. The other went five with a Witt team that I thought was playing better than Hope at the end of the year.

    As far as the other picks, no matter the sport, I tend to get creative when filling out brackets. It rarely works out for me.
