I talked a bit about the proposed realignment from 8 regions to 10, but now I’ll talk about more that came out of the Championships Committee’s report from last month. You can find the report that touched on the realignment, here. The new regions are being targeted for the fall of 2021 so no impact…… Continue reading More NCAA News (Updated)
Month: March 2020
One of the bigger changes coming in DIII volleyball (well, all sports) is the proposed realignment from 8 regions to 10 regions. Over at Ricky Nelson’s site, he has published a proposed list that was given out by the NCAA. This list is preliminary but shows what conferences would be assigned to which region. If…… Continue reading Realignment News
Willamette Hires Coach
The last West Region school with a head coach opening (at least for today) has found their woman in Lily Hallock. Coach Hallock comes from UW-La Crosse where she was head coach from 2012 to 2017 winning their conference’s coach of the year honors in 2015 and 2016. Since 2017, she’s been a coach at…… Continue reading Willamette Hires Coach
Schedules in March?
Much to my surprise there are actually three schools that either have their schedules published or where my Latvian hackers have found them. I don’t recall any schedules becoming available this early. Of course, the coaches know their schedules and should obviously share them with me but this learning process has been slow. In fairness,…… Continue reading Schedules in March?
I wanted to write a little something on DIII recruiting in the midst of the Coronavirus. A number of Potential Student Athletes (PSA) would typically use this time to do on campus visits or have potential schools evaluate them at tournaments. With schools closing their doors for the time being and club volleyball suspending action,…… Continue reading Still Looking?
Musing (to maintain my sanity)
In my coronavirus post I really didn’t mention that colleges are all taking drastic action to protect their students and facility. Extended spring breaks. On-line classes. Cancellations of really everything that involve audiences. My son, the theatre major, and I were discussing the fact that Tarrant (Fort Worth) and Dallas counties have restricted gatherings of…… Continue reading Musing (to maintain my sanity)
La Verne Hires Coach
Well, they already had their coach as they removed the “interim” tag from Jeff Hendershot and made him their official head coach. I haven’t seen an official release on this but I did hear it from a good authority and their website now lists him as “Head Coach”. Just checked again and his bio has…… Continue reading La Verne Hires Coach
I’ve been out of the country for almost a week. Did I miss anything? So, my wife and I went down to Mexico last Sunday for a spring break vacation with another family and the “kids”. Never mind that we found out that our son has his spring break the following week, we still went.…… Continue reading COVID-19
A Director’s Story
I haven’t written much lately but it is in the off-season so there really isn’t a lot out there. (As I finished writing this sentence, I made sure to check La Verne and Willamette for any coaching news…and, there wasn’t.) I’m not sure how many out there like my random life stories but I thought…… Continue reading A Director’s Story
