State Coaches Association volleyball rankings

Here’s another take on state volleyball rankings that came out today, from the Washington State Volleyball Coaches Association. They generally will be sent out on Monday or Tuesday, and I’ll post them when I get them.

It’s always nice to have another point of view. Plus, these rankings include all classificaitons (note that King’s is rated No. 1 in 1A).

Tanya Campbell, head coach at Emerald Ridge in Puyallup, puts these together with input from coaches around the state. While we agree on the No. 1 teams for both 4A (Mead of Spokane) and 3A (Eastside Catholic), there are otherwise some big differences. In 4A, for instance, Auburn Riverside is No. 2 (my No. 7) and Graham-Kapowsin is No. 3 (on my watch list, although I really wrestled with getting them in the top-10).

Tanya said G-K looked very good at her jamboree last Saturday.

Also, there’s one other take on volleyball rankings by Coaches Aid, a new high-school site this fall. Here’s the link to their preseason rankings. Not sure how often they will be updated. The link also has their football and soccer rankings.
