I’ve already given you the Top 11 Hitting Percentage leaders nationally in my National Review article. (This part will be repeated for each article.) Points/Set…… Continue reading Points/Set Standings (9/30/21)

Region Leaders (9/30/21)
My cover photo is of Audrey Sawyer (CMS) who is third in the nation in Hitting Percentage at 0.482. We do have a national leader in Jenny Jenks (Colorado College) but she’s already scored the cover photo this season.

Update: TLU with the sweep. In a current location with very poor WiFi. No streaming for me unless I figure something out. GFU is up 2-1 on Pacific.

Region X Rankings – Updated
I normally release the Region X Top 8 with my Top 25, but neither the NCAA or “Ned” had SOS numbers I could use so I had to hold off. The NCAA has updated their link so I went ahead and updated my Watch List. The major change to the Watch List was the elimination…… Continue reading Region X Rankings – Updated

Some were using 2020 data (or needed 2020 data) to…… Continue reading National Review
