I did not, but was told Elder won all 4 (not surprising, tbh) with the 1st set not close but got closer in subsequent sets as Elder rotated kids in. Was told Lanter and Niemann didn't play. Ran a 6-2 with Kelly and Voss with Kelly playing 6, Samuels at libero, Harvey at OH, Tierney at OH and Opp (?), Davis at OH, Tucker and James at MH. Have to think Lanter and Niemann factor in when they're back from whatever kept them out. Heard they looked athletic on the pins, but a little sloppy sometimes in serving and serve receive. Good experience for the young guys though, I'd assume.Did anyone check out the Elder-Taylor scrimmage tonight?
Remove Ed's from this list. They lost to Stow on Friday in 3 sets. Hearing JV coach took over program. Lot's of changes made. Anyone have insight?Who are your top 5 in each region for D1? How about a team that will be better than people think?
Surprise: Lakota East
2. Mount Vernon
Surprise: Westerville North
Southwest-wise, Lakota East lost to McNick in a best of 3 on Saturday during a tri-match. Last set was 25-17, too.Remove Ed's from this list. They lost to Stow on Friday in 3 sets. Hearing JV coach took over program. Lot's of changes made. Anyone have insight?

Bacon’s going to be a problem for the next few yearsBacon with the win in 4 vs Badin
Moeller wins in 3 vs Walnut
Bacon should be very good this year and next. Time will tell moving forward.Bacon’s going to be a problem for the next few years
Tonight’s Moe v Fenwick matches (on all 3 levels) are live on Fenwick’s YouTube channel if interested.Anyone able to watch the Moeller Walnut match?
Hausfeld would undoubtedly be the best hitter on the court for almost every team in the stateElder with the 3-0 win over Lasalle Friday night. While Hausfeld looked to be the best hitter on the court, Elder led the way with a very balanced attack. Elder plays a very good defense, led by Samuels at libero. Elder may be a little down this year but they will battle to the last point. Lasalle needs more help for Hausfeld to have a more balanced attack.
Did you think I wasn't giving Hausfeld enough credit? Great match but the other Big 3 teams in Cincinnati have hitters that would argue against your statement.Hausfeld would undoubtedly be the best hitter on the court for almost every team in the state
Both right. Probably a short list of Moeller, Liberty, and arguably X and Ignatius. Maybe Mt Vernon as well.Did you think I wasn't giving Hausfeld enough credit? Great match but the other Big 3 teams in Cincinnati have hitters that would argue against your statement.
I was just making a statement based on how talented I think he is. Nothing more or less than that. I also said “almost” not “all”Did you think I wasn't giving Hausfeld enough credit? Great match but the other Big 3 teams in Cincinnati have hitters that would argue against your statement.
Actually according to Dom it was just a dislocation, so as long as they don’t find a fracture he will be back almost immediately.View attachment 39902
One of Ignatius’ setters broke his wrist or something to that effect in set 4 against X. Tough break, hope he’s ok.
They also switched up their starting MH2. Not sure of names, but they subbed him in set 3 against X. Thought he played pretty well. Looks like he’s their guy for a while.Good match at Elder tonight! Moeller wins in 4 with Elder taking the first set 25-20, and Moe winning the next 3 25-22, 25-22, 25-22. Moeller struggled to pass in the first set so they brought in freshman phenom Tyler Wong at libero the rest of the way. Elder passes the ball well but struggles to get kills at times. The return of OH2 from last years team, Bradley Lanter, should help in that department in the next couple of weeks. Moeller just has too much size for Elder at this point.
