Hosting a weekend tournament to open the season


http://www.gamecocksonline.com/sport...082417aae.html



The South Carolina volleyball program begins its much-anticipated 2017 season on Friday night, when it hosts Mercer for the first of three weekend matches in the Gamecock Invitational. First serve at the Carolina Volleyball Center is scheduled for 7 p.m.

The Gamecocks are also scheduled to compete with Troy and North Florida on this opening weekend. Saturday with feature a 1 p.m. match against the Trojans and a 7 p.m. tournament finale against the Ospreys. Live stats will be available throughout the weekend, but there will be no live video stream of the matches.

GAMECOCKS READY FOR 2017 SCHEDULE The 30-match schedule for 2017 features two home tournament in the non-conference, as well as battles with eight non-conference opponent who won 15 or more matches in 2016. Following opening weekend at the CVC, the team will compete at the Duke Invite, with a field including the Blue Devils, Northwestern and UNC-Wilmington.Capping the home non-conference schedule is the Carolina Classic, Sept. 8-9. The field features a pair of opponents coming off 20-win seasons, with Miami (Ohio) (24-7) and Radford (24-6). The Gamecocks will also host Eastern Kentucky. In the final tune-up before conference play, Carolina will head to the upstate for the Clemson Challenge Sept. 15-16. The Gamecocks play Georgia Southern on Friday, then take on Texas Tech Saturday morning before a 7 p.m. showdown with their rivals in Jervey Gym.

The Southeastern Conference season begins Sept. 22 with a Friday road match at Mississippi State, then Carolina returns for three home matches in the span of one week. The conference home opener pits the team against LSU on Friday, Sept. 29, with games against Tennessee (Oct. 1) and Georgia (Oct. 6) to follow. The Gamecocks have a home-and-away series with Mississippi State, Tennessee, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Auburn, and Alabama this season.

SCOUTING MERCER
The Bears are coming off a 15-14 record in 2016, and return five starters and nine players who saw time in 50 or more sets last season. Leading the offense last season was current senior Morgan MacGilvary, who averaged 3.26 kills per set. Fellow pin Emily Krogman had a solid year all-around, with an average of 2.42 kills and 2.15 digs per set. On the defensive side of the net, 6-foot, 3-inch blocker Paige Alsten averaged an impressive 1.26 blocks per set and also chipped in 2.10 kills. This season, the veteran Bears will be lead by first-year head coach Derek Schroeder, who comes to the program after a successful tenure at Samford.

SCOUTING TROY
The Trojans return three starters and their libero from 2016, when they finished 10-23 overall. Head coach Josh Lauer is in his first season, and will be tasked with developing new offensive weapons after the team lost three of its top for attackers from last year. The team’s top returners are Logan Page (207 kills, 112 total blocks) and setter Reina Terry (841 assists, 219 digs). Five new Trojans join the fold this season, with four freshman and Towson transfer Jenni Young.

SCOUTING NORTH FLORIDA
UNF will be a team to watch in the Atlantic Sun this season, as it returns almost every major contributor from last season’s 18-win campaign. Leading the charge is super sophomore Gabby O’Connell, who was the conference’s freshman of the year in 2016, averaging 3.34 kills and 2.61 digs per set. Former LSU pin Katarina Raicevic also returns, after ranking second on the team in kills in 2016. Adding to the offensive firepower is setter/right side Carinne Turner (232 assists, 224 digs) and setter Madilyn McCarty (8.16 assists, 2.05 digs per set). The Ospreys are under the direction of sixth-year head coach Steve Loeswick.

Default Re: ***Can You Dig It? - Volleyball 2017 Season***

Looking forward to the matches this weekend . I was a little disappointed with our scrimmage at Appalachian State . We split 4 sets . I saw the stats on the App State site and we out blocked them by a wide margin , but they out dug us 72 to 57 . Our back row play will have to be better than that to compete with the better teams . However , it did appear that Swanson got a good look at every one on the roster in Boone . Freshman Mikayla Robinson should start at one middle spot , and a couple of the freshmen outside hitters are contending for playing time . Based on last year's records , North Florida should be the toughest test this weekend .

USC over Mercer 3-0 . Scores were 25-17, 26-24, & 25-19 . Sensational start for Mikayla Robinson who had 12 kills in 13 attempts . Swanson is still trying to settle on the outside hitter spots , and on who gets subbed out on the back row . Freshman Brook Gostomski played well in set three .

I noticed in the Troy - North Florida match (which UNF won 3-2) that UNF's best player , Gabby O'Connell , was not dressed out and on crutches .

USA tops Troy 3-0 . Scores were 25-18, 25-20 and 25-22 . Set three wasn't quite as close as the score would indicate . USC led that one 23-16 , and there were quite a few subs in when Troy made a mini-comeback .

Mikayla Robinson once again led the way on offense . Robinson had ten kills and the other Mikayla ( Shields ) had nine. Sophomore middle Claire Edwards played well all-around . And though Edwards serving stats were not that impressive (0 aces , 2 errors) , she consistently put pressure on Troy with her serves .

Next match is North Florida tonight at 7pm .

Another 3 game sweep for USC . North Florida is a pretty good ball-handling team , and this match was played at a higher level than the previous two for USC . When UNF gets their big gun healthy they will win some matches . They started out strong against us , but eventually our blocking took it's toll and they began to press a little and hit some balls out .

Junior Courtney Furlong made a strong bid for one of the outside hitter spots for USC with ten kills in 20 attempts . The gamecocks had well balanced scoring with three other players with 8 kills each . Claire Edwards continued to play well with 5 kills in 11 attempts , 6 block assists and 1 solo block . With Edwards and Robinson , USC really looks strong in the middle right now .

edit ; set scores were 25-19, 25-22 and 25-17

Mikayla Robinson didn't get SEC freshman of the week , but she did get a mention on the Prep Volleyball site . This is from their recap of what the top freshmen in the country did the first weekend :

South Carolina

No. 18 Mikayla Robinson, MB There was little doubt Robinson would help South Carolina right away. She had herself a great beginning, leading the team with 30 kills (3.33 per set) and hitting .558. She also put down 9 blocks.

Big tournament up in Durham this weekend. The Saturday match against Duke will be live online, if you've got nothing else going on at 3:00 ;-)


http://www.gamecocksonline.com/sport...083117aaa.html


Fresh off a three-win opening weekend, the South Carolina volleyball team makes its first road trip of the season on Friday. The Gamecocks head up Tobacco Road for the Duke Invitational, where they face Northwestern and UNC Wilmington on Friday, and take on the host Blue Devils Saturday afternoon.


Friday's matches against the Wildcats and Seahawks will not feature live video coverage, but the 3 p.m. Saturday showdown with Duke will air on ACC Network Extra's online stream. Admission is free for all matches.

SCOUTING NORTHWESTERN
The Wildcats went 2-1 in the opening weekend, beating tournament host South Florida and Arkansas-Pine Bluff but dropping a 3-2 decision to LSU. Senior Symone Abbott powered the offense with 37 kills (4.11 per set), and freshman Nia Robinson added 3.67 kills per set while hitting .244. Senior middle Gabrielle Hazen was the team's top two-way player for the weekend, averaging 2.67 kills and 1.44 blocks per set. Northwestern is growing quickly under second-year coach Shane Davis, with 12 players being either in their first or second seasons with the program and a top-25 recruiting class already paying dividends. Abbott is the team's top returner, she ranks 12th in school history for kills and 11th in total attacks.

SCOUTING UNC WILMINGTON
UNCW also went 2-1 in its opening weekend, with wins over Loyola (Md.) and Davidson but a four-set loss to Appalachian State. Junior pin Halle Hunt led a balanced offense with 2.82 kills for the weekend while hitting .270. In total, all six of the Seahawk starters averaged 1.80 kills per set or better for the weekend, and the team out-hit the opposition .223 to .182. UNCW was picked to finish seventh in the Colonial Athletic Association, with junior pin Maddy Kline making the preseason all-conference team.

SCOUTING DUKE
The Blue Devils made waves in their opening weekend, sweeping all three matches out in Colorado to earn 10 votes in the first AVCA coaches poll of the regular season. Highlighting the trip west was a thrilling 3-2 win over a Colorado State team that was receiving votes in the AVCA top 25 coaches poll, but Duke also tallied wins over Central Florida and North Colorado. Senior pin Cadie Bates led the team with 3.31 kills per set, and also ranked second on the team with 2.46 digs per set. Payton Schwantz was also up over three kills per set for the weekend, and hit .250. The Blue Devils were picked to finish seventh in the talented ACC, with junior Leah Meyer making the preseason all-conference team after hitting .333 with 2.98 kills and 1.31 blocks per set in 2016. Duke is in its 19th season under head coach Jolene Nagel, and have won 20 or more matches in all but four of her seasons with the program.

Northwestern over USC 3-1 . This match was actually streamed on ESPN3 , and the UNC-W match will be as well (although ESPN seems to think Southern Cal is playing ) . Scores vs Northwestern were 25-13 , 18-25 , 18-25 & 19-25 . I saw the last part of the match and USC just wasn't passing and executing well . Northwestern is probably one of the weaker teams in the Big . UNC-W match should start around 5:00 .

Gamecocks lose to UNC-W 3-1 , once again taking the first set and losing the next three . Scores were 25-17 , 21-25 , 21-25 and 26-28 . USC blew a 24-21 lead in set 4 . Mikayla Shields was the offense for USC with 24 kills . Lots of changes to the lineup in this match ( Mikayla Robinson , after a poor third set , rode the bench for set four) but in the end just not enough offensive firepower .

The team plays Duke (probably the best team in the tournament) Saturday at 3pm .

USC tops Duke 3-1 . I haven't had a chance to watch any of this yet , since I was on an all day bus trip to the football game . I was pleasantly surprised when I heard the score . Here is the link to the gamecocksonline story . Sounds like another great match from Mikayla Shields , and Scott Swanson's comments are pretty interesting .

Big weekend hosting the Carolina Classic


http://www.gamecocksonline.com/sport...090717aaa.html


A big test awaits the volleyball team, as it returns to the friendly confines of the Carolina Volleyball Center this weekend to host the Carolina Classic Friday and Saturday.

The Gamecocks will play Eastern Kentucky at 1 p.m. and Miami (Ohio) at 7 p.m. Friday, then wrap up Saturday afternoon with a 2 p.m. match with Radford. Last weekend, the team went 1-2 at the Duke Invitational, with losses to Northwestern and UNCW before rebounding to upset the host Blue Devils, 3-1.

For any fans with a Gamecock volleyball camp T-shirt, admission all weekend is just one dollar per match.

SCOUTING EASTERN KENTUCKY
The Colonels enter the tournament at 2-5, but have played a challenging schedule with three-straight weekends on the road to open their season. EKU opened the season with wins over San Diego State and Cal State, Northridge before dropping the next five. Last weekend, the team lost to Arizona, Radford and Grand Canyon out at the Cactus Classic in Tucson. Leading the offense are senior pins Nikki Drost and Celina Sanks, who account for over half (5.68) of the team's kills per set (10.82). At the net, Ciera Koons accounts for 1.04 blocks per set, but the team as a whole is averaging just 1.75 blocks per set through seven matches. The Colonels are under the direction of Lori Duncan, now in her 20th season leading the program.

SCOUTING MIAMI (OHIO)
Year in and year out, the Redhawks of Miami have proven themselves as one of the best mid-major programs in the country, and enter the weekend ranked 20th in VolleyballMag's weekly mid-major top 25 poll. In 2016, the team finished 24-7, won its conference regular season title and earned a rare at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. This season, Miami is the odds-on favorite to win the Mid-American Conference, receiving 10 of the 12 possible first-place votes in the preseason coaches poll and return most of the key contributors to last year's tournament run. Senior libero Maeve McDonald and senior pin Katie Tomasic made the preseason all-conference team, and despite a very challenging schedule the team enters the Carolina Classic at 4-4. Of those four losses, though, three have been tight contests with perennial standouts such as Western Kentucky, Wichita State, and Dayton. Nationally, Miami's defense ranks 16th in digs per set, and McDonald is 25th in the nation with 5.37 digs per set.

SCOUTING RADFORD
The Highlanders are another perennial power coming to the tournament, with 24 or more wins in three of the last four seasons under coach Marci Jenkins. Radford is quietly building another solid season in 2017, as it enters week three with a 6-0 record and is 31st in the VolleyballMag weekly mid-major poll. The team swept through the Cactus Classic in Tucson last weekend, highlighted by a 3-2 win over the host Wildcats from Arizona on Saturday after trailing 2-0. Senior pin Maddie Palmer has a lot to do with the early success, as the 2016 Big South Player of the Year is already averaging 3.65 kills per set with a .274 hitting percentage. The Highlanders rank 21st nationally in aces per set as a team and 58th in blocks.

USC split their two matches Friday , defeating Eastern Kentucky 3-0 and losing 3-2 to Miami of Ohio . I thought the gamecocks played much better vs Miami than they did vs EKU , but not quite good enough . Highlights for USC in the 5 set loss were 26 kills from Mikayla Shields and 6 service aces by Aubrey Ezell .

USC faces Radford Saturday at 2:00 pm . Miami handed Radford their first loss of the season Friday .

Unfortunately we couldn't hand Radford their second loss, falling 3-2 to them. Scores were an extremely up-n-down 25-12 18-25 13-25 25-22 9-15

Aubrey Ezell was the only one who could put any pressure on them with her serve . When we got no points out of her two serves in set five I knew we were in trouble . They handled our other player's serves pretty easy , much better than we handled theirs .

ps - I couldn't comment earlier . My internet has been screwed up since Saturday . All of a sudden it's working again .

We don't seem to be improving at all under Swanson. This season has been a regression so far. Might be time for a fresh start after this season

The nonconference season comes a close this weekend for the South Carolina volleyball program, as the Gamecocks head to the upstate for the Clemson Challenge. The two-day tournament pits Carolina against Georgia Southern, Texas Tech, and the host Tigers.

SCOUTING GEORGIA SOUTHERN
The Eagles have gone without competition for almost two weeks due to hurricane season; the last match played came back on Sept. 2 against Charlotte at home. So far, GSU is 2-4 with wins over FIU and North Florida. The team's top three offensive producers are returners - Lauren Reichard leads the team with 3.05 kills per set and a .326 hitting percentage, Anna Wenger averages 2.81 kills per set, and Catherine Murray is the team's top six-rotation player, with 2.76 kills and 2.52 digs per set. The offense is transitioning in 2017, after losing RS/Setter Katie Bange (4.65 assists, 2.71 kills) and Kendra Koetter (5.17 assists, 2.07 digs) from last year. Now in a 5-1 offense, UTEP transfer April Luther is leading the way with 10.70 assists per set.

SCOUTING TEXAS TECH
Texas Tech brings an 8-1 record into the week, and will play at Georgia Thursday night before heading up to Clemson for the weekend. The Red Raiders are already approaching 2016's win total under second-year head coach Tony Graystone, using a group of talented transfers to gel with a young core that consists of 15 players in either their first or second year with the program. Sophomore middle blocker Chandler Atwood leads the offense with 3.29 kills per set, and Mississippi State transfer Emily Hill is right behind her with 3.16 kills and 2.03 digs per set. Fellow transfer Missy Owens (Long Beach) is the team's starting setter, and has the Raiders out-hitting the opposition .248 to .162. Defensively, Tech has shown incredible ball control, committing only 14 serve reception errors in 31 sets and popping up 15.94 digs per set.

SCOUTING CLEMSON
The host Tigers are 4-5 in their first season under new head coach Michaela Franklin. With the loss of senior outside Leah Perri from 2016, the team turned to Illinois transfer Kaylin Korte to fill her role. She has shown to be more than capable so far, leading the offense with 3.57 kills per set while also adding 2.79 digs. Clemson has lost three straight matches coming into the tournament, with 3-0 setbacks against South Alabama and Auburn the most recent results.

Beat Ga. Southern 3-0; scores were 25-17 25-19 25-21 so by the 6th set they would have beat us

Texas Tech this morning and Clemson tonight . TT is a decent team . They are now 9-2 after losing at Georgia Thursday night and beating Clemson last night . Could possibly be another 5 set match . We should beat Clemson unless we get rattled and/or out-coached . I think we have more talent . The CU match should be available on WatchESPN . Hopefully I wiil have a nice leisurely Sunday watching replays of football & volleyball wins .
