The ASC has just released their 2020-21 volleyball schedule. As what should be the common approach with other conferences, the ASC is going with a conference only schedule. What may make the ASC unique, however, is that it is restricting play by divisions. The ASC is split into an East and West Division and this…… Continue reading ASC Releases Schedule
Month: August 2020
Back to some actual volleyball content today. In the past, I like to go through the rosters and figure out who unexpectedly has left the program.
