We'll start with a thread for scores this season. If we start to get enough activity, we could move to a daily scores thread. Just need alot of participation for that to happen...
In NEO it is still the same cast of characters, former NCL members Padua, NDCL, and Gilmour. Padua is still the primary player in Div I but I don't think they are as strong as LY and the GGCL school, probably MND, that heads to Dayton should be the favorite in Div I. It will be interesting to see how Div II plays out as Gilmour probably has a deeper team but NDCL has arguably the best player in the state in Caroline Jurevicius, Joe's daughter. Hard to get a good read on NDCL though as they were shut down for a couple weeks be3cause of a Covid case so I would not read too much into the recent result against Gilmour.Im here and will try to post more often. Im most familiar with Cincinnati area and specifically the GGCL. Normal contenders are likely to be MND and Ursuline.
Mount Notre Dame 5 - 0 & 10 - 0
Seton 3 - 1 & 8 - 1
Ursuline Academy 2 - 2 & 7 - 2
St. Ursula 1 - 4 & 7 - 4
Mercy McAuley 0 - 4 & 4 - 4
Similar situation in NEO with the old North Coast League but instead of Div I its Div II.RESULTS FROM TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2020
St. Ursula d. Mercy McAuley 25-18, 25-22, 25-15
Seton d. Ursuline Academy 17-25, 25-13, 25-15, 25-15
Mount Notre Dame d. Lakota West 25-22, 25-14, 25-15
RESULTS MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2020
Mercy McAuley d. Mason 25-20, 25-17, 25-22
I only included Monday's results to illustrate how incredibly difficult this GGCL League is from top to bottom. Mason is the first place team and has not lost a set in the GMC all season. Mercy McAuley beat them 3-0 and is undefeated outside the league.
Current league standings are as follows:
Mount Notre Dame 5 - 0 & 11-0
Seton 5 - 1 & 11 - 1
Ursuline Academy 2 - 3 & 7 - 3
St. Ursula 2 - 5 & 9 - 6
Mercy McAuley 0 - 5 & 6 - 5
Right, the GGCL website only has data back to 2007 and until this year Seton has been in the bottom two for all 13 prior years and the very bottom for 7 of those. Don't confuse it with a Cinderella season though, I'd think this should be expected when you bring in a National Club Director for your new coach (and it certainly wouldn't bode well for TSE business if Seton remained at the bottom of the league either). Solid return on investment by Seton (ironically replacing UA at the top after their coach - who happens to be a Seton alumni - left this year).Seton beat MND is straight sets last evening and (with one game remaining at home vs MM) it looks like they are going to at least share the GGCL championship with one another. I've no idea the last time Seton won the league ( or Ursuline finishing 3rd & SUA 4th). Has to be almost 15 years ago.
