Default Beach Volleyball nabs a Tater!

And a pretty good one, apparently

The South Carolina beach volleyball team added another talented graduate transfer to the roster Friday evening, as head coach Moritz Moritz announced the addition of Leah Perri for the 2018 season. Perri, a Michigan native, recently completed a lauded indoor volleyball career for the Clemson Tigers.

"We are very excited Leah is joining our team," head coach Moritz Moritz said. "She's a high quality person and a high-level volleyball player who has all the skills and competitive experience needed to add to our depth. We expect her to make an immediate impact on our team and contribute to the culture of our program."

Perri did not miss a match over her four seasons indoors, cumulating 1,483 kills in 127 matches and averaging 3.13 kills per set. Leah set career highs in kills, digs, and aces as a senior and made the All-ACC second team. After moving to a six-rotation role before her junior year, she posted back-to-back seasons with 400 or more kills and 200 or more digs as a pin hitter for the Tigers.

So how does this work? The Indoor Volleyball seasons are in the late summer-early fall beginning in August, while the Beach Volleyball seasons beginning in early spring in March. This girl was able to play a full 4-year career at Clemson, and yet still can play another "season" with us, but in beach volleyball? I guess she graduated early and used up all of her playing eligibility while at CU, but Beach Volleyball is considered a different sport? Clemson doesn't support a Beach Volleyball program....

Clemson was 2-2 against us in indoor volleyball during her time there, losing the last two.

I think she has a 5 year clock to compete , so she still has a year left to play a different sport . Not absolutely certain , but I think that's how it works . Beach and indoor are most definitely different sports .

In a somewhat similar situation (except in reverse) , Elena Delle Donne played volleyball only her first year at Delaware . She then gave up volleyball and played basketball in years two through five .

Yep I can understand if it is different sports....we can also say it was the same thing with Bruce Ellington: he initially came to USC to play basketball on scholarship, and played as a true freshman in 2010 then played both basketball and football in 2011. Because by NCAA rule he'd have to be on scholarship as a football player (the Bear Bryant Rule), Ellington was listed as a red-shirt freshman for FB in 2011, but was a true sophomore walk-on for basketball that same year.

I understand those situations because the differences in sports were obvious for both, but didn't know if Beach Volleyball and Indoor Volleyball would be as well. It's almost like treating Indoor Track & Field and Outdoor Track & Field as different sports, but they are not.....

Cross-country is a different sport than Track & Field , but there are certainly similarities between cross-country and distance running in T&F . More similarities there than with beach vb & indoor vb . I love watching indoor vb . Can't really get into watching beach . With only two on a side the rallies aren't normally long enough to make it interesting to me . Pro beach has the skimpy outfits for the women , so that helps their tv ratings some .

I didn't mean to start bashing beach vb though . Those girls are very athletic and they work hard . Just not a sport that appeals to me that much . And I'd rather watch a 1500 meter in track & field than a cross-country race . To each his own .
