Default ***Volley Girl - 2016 Volleyball Season***

The season serves up at the CofC Invitational with one game tonight and 2 more tomorrow


http://www.gamecocksonline.com/sport...082516aag.html


The South Carolina volleyball program gets its 2016 season underway Friday night, as it heads to the low country for the College of Charleston Invitational. The two-day tournament features a match against the host Cougars Friday night, and Tennessee-Martin and Binghamton on Saturday.

SCOUTING COLLEGE OF CHARLESTON
The Cougars will be an important early test for the Gamecocks, as the weekend hosts are coming off their sixth-straight 20-win season and a spot in the Colonial Athletic Association's championship. The team brings back six players from 2015, but will need to work in nine new players to the rotation. The strength of the team in the early going will surely be through the middle, where CAA honorable mention All-Conference blockers Krissy Mummey (197 kills, 101 blocks) and Kennedy Madison (340 kills) return. College of Charleston also brings back its starting setter (Allison Beckman) and standout pin Devon Rachel (234 kills).

SCOUTING TENNESSEE-MARTIN
Tennessee-Martin enters its second season under the direction of Jaclynn Yocum. The Skyhawks finished the 2015 season with a 9-24 ocerall record, placing 10th in the Ohio Valley Conference. Only two starters return from that group, and the six newcomers join the roster for 2016. A player to watch for the Skyhawks will be Madison Wessling, who leads all returning attackers with 310 kills in 2015 (2.48 per set). The team lost both of its setters, so transfer Kelly Lean will step in as the offense's leader. The defense will benefit from the return of DS/Liberos Colleen Larson (2.32 digs/set) and Jamie Scherb (1.75 digs/set), but did lose its leading blocker and main libero from 2015.

SCOUTING BINGHAMTON
Binghamton, a 9-19 team a season ago, is looking for a big jump in 2016. The team lost just one senior from last season and welcome back three major contributors who missed 2015 due to injury. Sophomore pin Gaby Alicea (284 kills, 31 aces) and setter Sarah Ngo (9.17 assist/set) each earned All-America East postseason honors last season, and the team also returns its leading blocker (Kristella Morina - 102 blocks) and main libero Bailey Walker (4.86 digs/set). The key to watch for will be the reintegration of Allison Hovie (2014 America East All-Conference First Team) and Lexi LaGoy (2014 America East Rookie of the Year), who missed most of 2015 season but are proven commodities.

CofC may have been the best team in the state last year , so a win over them would be a great start . The CofC site says they have some kind of live video feed of our match , but I don't know if they charge anything or not . I'll be at the soccer match anyway .

Schedule change due to the impending hurricane - tonight's match vs. Clemson has been moved to Sunday Tomorrow's games will go on as scheduled. Stay safe everyone!


http://www.gamecocksonline.com/sport...090116aad.html


Due to inclement weather forecasted for the Midlands for Friday night, South Carolina volleyball's previously scheduled match at 7 p.m. against Clemson will be postponed until Sunday at 1:30 p.m.

The match was scheduled to be the first of three this weekend for the Gamecocks, as part of the Carolina Classic tournament with the Tigers, Furman and Winthrop. All of the Saturday matches will go on as planned, starting with Clemson versus Winthrop at 10 a.m. and running through South Carolina's match against Winthrop at 7 p.m.

The new schedule for Sunday will be Furman versus Winthrop at 10:30 a.m. with the rivalry match between Carolina and Clemson to follow. For more information on the weekend tournament, go to GamecocksOnline.com and follow the team on Twitter (@GamecockVolley).

This will be the first weekend for the clear bag policy at the Carolina Volleyball Center, fans are reminded to arrive early and check out the information page for the policy before arriving to ensure an easy entrance to the gym ( Clear Bag Policy/FAQs).

SCOUTING CLEMSON
Clemson went 2-1 in its opening weekend as the host of the Orange Bash tournament, losing the opener to William & Mary before dropping High Point and Wofford on Saturday. The Tigers were led by Leah Perri, who finished with 60 kills on the weekend. Perri, a senior outside hitter, made the preseason All-ACC team after averaging 3.68 kills per set in 2015. Two of the team's main question marks entering the season - its starting setter and libero - found answers in the form of Keely Hayes and Kennedy Wilson-Talmadge, respectively. Hayes averaged 10.64 assists per set and had 10 blocks in the first weekend, and Wilson-Talmadge finished with four aces and 55 digs (4.23 per set). Also on the defensive side of the court, Dejhana Cotton averaged 1.36 blocks per set last weekend, as the middle showed great upside after missing her true freshman season due to injury.

SCOUTING FURMAN
Furman poses a significant challenge to South Carolina, as the Paladins welcome back four starters and their libero from a 2015 team that made the NCAA tournament. The team opened its 2016 season with a road tournament at Auburn, and finished the weekend 1-2. After losing the opener 3-1 to Pacific, Furman rallied to upset the host Tigers in four sets. Closing out the weekend, they were swept by ACC foe Georgia Tech. A big reason for the team's win over Auburn, and for the team's success in general, is senior Annie Bierman. She had 15 kills against the Tigers, and finished the weekend with 35 total. She earned the Southern Conference's Player of the Year honors in 2015 after pacing the conference in kills (467) and also recording 402 digs. The Paladins were named the conference's preseason favorite to repeat as champions after closing last year with a 21-9 overall record.

SCOUTING WINTHROP
The Eagles went 1-2 in the opening weekend of 2016, losing the UNC-Wilmington and Jacksonville before ending the tournament with a sweep of Davidson. Outside hitter Lourdes Rosario led the team with 46 kills over the weekend, including a high of 17 against Jacksonville. The team is relying on a young lineup, as the sophomore Rosario is joined by freshman setter Siani Yamaguchi, freshmen pins Sammie-Jo Al-Hong and Sydney Gunter, and redshirt middle Kelsey Schroll in the starting lineup. Winthrop finished 2015 with a 14-18 overall record.

After Furman beat Clemson 3-2 on Saturday night , I was hoping for a 3-0 sweep . Clemson did a good job serving though , and they have an outstanding all-around player in Leah Perri . All in all , I was pretty happy with the 3-1 win .

Going down to Georgia Southern for the weekend


http://www.gamecocksonline.com/sport...090816aad.html

The South Carolina volleyball team hits the road Thursday afternoon for its third weekend of the season, traveling south for the Springhill Suites Invitational at Georgia Southern. The tournament pits the Gamecocks against Wake Forest and Buffalo on Friday, and a matchup with the host Eagles on Saturday night.

SCOUTING WAKE FOREST
Wake Forest enters Friday morning's match against Carolina with a 1-3 record. The team went 1-2 last weekend at home in the Demon Deacon Classic tournament, beating College of Charleston 3-0 but losing to Davidson 3-1 and Loyola 3-2. Wake Forest is under a new head coach this season in Bill Ferguson, who coached the Southern Cal men's program from 2005-15. The team is young, with just one senior and seven underclassmen on the 12-woman roster. The offense is led by junior pin Kylie Long, who is averaging 4.32 kills per set so far this season. She is joined on the attack by freshman Carolina Rassenfoss, who is averaging 3.44 kills per set but is hitting just .185. The team's biggest flaw in the early part of the season has been blocking, as opponents have doubled them up to the tune of 76 blocks in just 19 sets (2.63) while the Deacs have put down just 1.32 per set.

SCOUTING BUFFALO
The Bulls are another young team, headed up by second-year head coach Blair Brown Lipsitz, a 2011 graduate of Penn State. Buffalo welcomed in eight newcomers to the roster this season, giving the program 12 underclassmen. The strength of the team lies in its middle blockers, where Amber Hatchett and Cassie Shado provide not only veteran leadership, but talent on both the offensive and defensive sides of the net. Sophomore Valisha Watkins has been the team's top producer on offense through the first two weekends of competition, averaging 2.71 kills per set from the pin. The offense has felt growing pains with freshman setter Scout McLerran, who averages just 8.27 assists per set as the primary setter, but she has proven to be a stout server (0.45 aces per set) and confident passer (2.50 digs per set).

SCOUTING GEORGIA SOUTHERN
The Eagles had a fruitful weekend as the hosts of the Bash in the `Boro tournament, beating all four opponents over the two-day tournament. They had a Monday match at Winthrop, losing 3-2, moving them to 4-4 heading into this weekend's action. The team has a very balanced offense, offering five different hitters who have 30 or more kills through the first eight matches of the year. Leading the way are Katie Bange, a right side hitter/setter who posts 2.82 kills, 4.21 assists and 1.64 digs per set, and pin Cathrine Murray, who averages 2.78 kills and 2.07 digs per set.
