Default ***Circle In The Sand - Beach Volleyball 2017 Season***

Reaching the beach down in St. Augustine to start off the 2017 season


http://www.gamecocksonline.com/sport...030317aae.html


The South Carolina beach volleyball program begins its fourth season Saturday, opening the 2017 schedule at the University of North Florida Beach Invitational. The two-day tournament on St. Augustine Beach will feature doubleheaders on both days – FIU and Spring Hill College on Saturday and College of Charleston and North Florida Sunday.

SCOUTING FIU
The Panthers went 13-9 overall and 5-3 in the CCSA last season, carrying a top-10 national ranking throughout the spring and are ranked 11th in the AVCA preseason ranks. Though the roster was mixed and matched up and down the five starting pair positions, a number of athletes who made an impact as a starter will return for 2017. Senior Katie Hogan won four matches at the #1 position, while Anabela Sataric went 5-4 for the year at #2. Junior Natalia Giron will likely play a bigger role in the lineup after notching a team-high 17 wins overall and 15 at the #5 position. Her classmate, Estefanie Bethancourt, may also factor in to the top pairs after winning five matches at #3 and seven more at #4 in 2016.

SCOUTING SPRING HILL COLLEGE
The Badgers had a 9-13 record in 2016, and will carry 15 underclassmen on their roster this spring. The team’s top pair of Madison Seuzeneau and Julie Vujnovich returns after winning seven matches in the #1 spot last season. Also adding to the team’s depth is Anna Tietjens, who was part of Spring Hill’s winningest pair in 2016 (10 wins at #2), and Molly Griffin and Hannah Masoner - the main #3 pair from last year.

SCOUTING COLLEGE OF CHARLESTON
The College of Charleston will be conference rivals with South Carolina this season, as the Cougars joined the CCSA in the fall. The program is coming off a 2016 season which ended with a 9-14 overall record, and return its winningest pair in sophomores Allison Beckman and Devon Rachel (12 wins at #5). Also returning is the team’s main #3 pair from 2016, Krissy Mummey and McKala Rhondes (nine wins), but with both members of the top pair graduating, the Cougars will need to find a new grouping to lead the way for 2017.

SCOUTING NORTH FLORIDA
The host Ospreys are defending Atlantic Sun champions, and welcome in five newcomers for 2017. North Florida finished 2016 with a 24-9 overall record, highlighted by three wins against nationally ranked opponents, and are ranked 13th in the preseason DiG Magazine national rankings. Though the program lost three players from its first and second pair, it does return Katarina Raicevic and Courtney Miller - who went 26-7 at #3 in 2016 - as well as Chaney Howard, who won 27 matches as part of the #4 pair in her 2016 freshman campaign.

PRESEASON NOTABLES

The Gamecocks return seven players who were mainstays in the top five pairs last season. All seven returners won 10 or more dual matches, and six won at least 15 matches.
Among those returning are Macie Tendrich and Katie Zimmerman, who paired up for 26 wins between the number two and three pairs. The 26 wins are a new single-season record for a Gamecock pair.
2017 will be the final go-around for the program’s first-ever freshman class. The group is made up of Erin Neuenfeldt, Helen Recaborde, Jade Vitt and Jordan Wilson-Talmadge.
Entering the fold this season are nine newcomers hailing from seven different states. Seven are freshmen, while two join the program as graduate transfers - Adrianna Culbert and Hannah Sorensen.
Three freshmen ended their high school careers with national honors. Carly Schnieder and Katie Smith earned a place on the AVCA High School Beach All-America Team, and Ali Denney made MaxPreps’ 2015 High School Small Schools All-American first team for her efforts during her senior indoor season. She finished with 7.5 kills and 1.3 aces per set for the The Pine School in Florida.
The Gamecocks are receiving votes in the AVCA top 15 preseason poll and are 17th in the DiG Magazine rankings.

We beat Mercer & # 11 Grand Canyon Saturday , both by a 4-1 score . That slacker JerseyBird must be waiting for the weekend's matches to be over to post . They may be over as the weather forecast is pretty bleak for today (Sunday) , but we are scheduled to play UAB & Jacksonville .

ps - the link below includes a photo gallery (always a good thing in Beach VB)

Well since baseball is off the only USC action tonight is beach volleyball hosting Coastal at 6:00, and can be seen on WatchESPN


http://www.gamecocksonline.com/sport...031317aab.html


South Carolina's beach volleyball program will hold its one and only mid-week dual of 2017 on Tuesday night. The Gamecocks welcome in Palmetto State rival Coastal Carolina at 6 p.m. for a matchup that is scheduled to air on the SEC Network + internet stream.

BACK AT WHEELER BEACH
The Gamecocks have two more home tournaments coming up at Wheeler Beach this year, after sweeping three duals in the Gamecock Challenge last weekend. South Carolina has been historically strong at home, compiling a record of 26-8 over the program's first three years. Last year was a high point, with the Gamecocks going 14-3 at home.

SCOUTING COASTAL CAROLINA
The Chanticleers have a slow month of March, as Tuesday night will be the team's first competition of the regular season. Following the one-off dual with South Carolina, Coastal will then go another 15 days before getting back into action. This is the second year of the program, which competes as part of the ASUN Conference. Justin Stack takes over as the beach program's head coach, looking to improve upon the team's 3-9 record in its first season. The Chants' top returner from 2016 is Natasa Savovic, who played on the top pair last season and is also an accomplished indoor player.

We beat Coastal 4-1 . Kinda funny that it was too cold for baseball to play up in Greenville but we played beach vb in Columbia .
A little note for Roku users . This match was not listed under the " NCAA Beach VB " category last night . I was going to check and see how it was going . I didn't really think to get on the net and check the actual WatchESPN app . Anyway , I found the replay this morning with the Roku by bringing up the "All volleyball " category . A little flaw in the Roku app , I guess .

The only possible excuse I can think of is that with volleyball you're pretty much constantly in action whereas baseball, not so much :shrug:

Did catch a little bit of it last night and was wondering why both teams had their black uniforms - at first I thought maybe those are the only colors we have but then I saw a Facebook post about the match but the pictures were of us in garnet uniforms, so that wasn't the issue.

Made it hard to follow which team was which during the volleys, especially because they frequently switch sides.

Did the garnet uniforms have long pants ? I would think long pants would have been the priority , even if they were the same color as the opponent .

That could be - the black ones yesterday were long pants. Didn't notice if they were all one piece or separate tops & pants
