But the Metro League gets a jump on them all with some seeding games tonight (Thursday) between teams in the Sound and Valley divisions to set up next week’s tournament, which officially begins on Tuesday. And one seeding match, between division champs Garfield (Sound)…

Class 4A, 3A and 2A state volleyball rankings — Week 7

The top seven teams remain intact in this week’s Class 4A state volleyball rankings. But there are newcomers — actually returners — in the next three spots after losses by No. 8 Curtis (to Bethel), No. 9 Mount Si (to Issaquah and Newport) and No. 10 Mead (to Gonzaga Prep). So, welcome back to Eisenhower, Snohomish and…

Weekly coaches’ state volleyball rankings

Here are the latest state volleyball rankings from the Washington State Volleyball Coaches Association. I will note that the person sending these out said there were no votes from Class 4A and 3A coaches for these this time around, so no changes were made. I’ve got some changes in mine, which will I’ll be posting within the…

The Right Stuff Volleyball Blog: Federal Way on the rise

The win was a long time coming. But there could be many more on the horizon for the young Federal Way volleyball team. The Eagles have struggled season after season, but I’d been noticing some steady improvement in their match scores this fall. They took two sets each off Kent-Meridian and Mount Rainier, for instance, one from Kentridge,…

Class 4A, 3A and 2A state volleyball rankings — Week 6

No teams out, no teams in — that hardly ever happens in the Class 4A, 3A and 2A state volleyball rankings.  And it’s even more rare to see no changes in more than once classification. But that’s the case this week, with only some minor shuffling in Class 2A. So let’s start there, where Selah swaps places…

The Right Stuff Volleyball Blog: McCreadie’s monster night

Anna McCreadie can be a monster on the volleyball court for Mount Si. And that monster was unleashed Tuesday when the ninth-ranked Wildcats needed one against Bothell in the opening KingCo 4A Conference match of the season. McCreadie, a 6-foot-3 outside hitter who has committed to Santa Clara, tied the school record with 37 kills as Mount Si…

Class 4A, 3A and 2A state volleyball rankings — Week 5

I updated here earlier about the three significant tournaments played Saturday. As usual, I had some struggles determining how much weight to put on certain matches — especially since they’re 2-out-of-3 at best. I rarely “punish” a team in a lower classification for losing to a good team in a higher classification. As it turns out, I…
