Not much out there right now in the volleyball world. The calm before the storm. I plan to post my predictions for each West Region Conference next week and end it on Friday with my top teams from the region. I was really hoping to see more rosters updated but I guess the SIDs have…… Continue reading Friday’s Musings
I stumbled around the WordPress world today and found a neat little site called Campus Encounters. The author does nice little write-ups of different schools and includes pictures.
