My team is playing for the Little East Conference volleyball championship tomorrow at 1PM.

We’re one win away from the show.

Wish us luck. We probably need it.

In a year of no championships among the Boston/Patriots sports teams, we need this. This is our championship this year. Bring 'er home.

This feels like that time in 2013 when @SydneySox got some of us to stream the Ashes.

So I guess what I'm saying is fuck Plymouth, England.

There's nothing "just D-III" about it. That's absolutely awesome! Good luck!!

Volleyball was my sport in college and now I coach high school girls. It's a blast. Go get 'em!!!!

Luck wished.
(I've got a soft spot for the game. I met my wife while playing volleyball in Central Park 35 or so years ago. )

Good luck and have fun!

(My son plays D III ultimate and watching his team have their best ever finish at Nationals last spring was such a rewarding experience.)

Go get ‘em! But don’t sell yourself short, it’s not “just DIII”. My daughter swam DIII and watching her swim NEWMAC conference champs was awesome. The fact that their relay team was as close as you can get to an NCAA bid (.01) was also cool. The DIII kids do it without getting scholarships, have to give up a lot of things that regular college kids get to do because they love the sport they’re competing in.

Holy shit, I just tuned in and saw those ladies rally from 12-23 about to be two sets down to tie it at a set apiece, 26-24. Wow! You must be so proud, no matter how it turns out. (I'm basing response on RedOctober's loyalties, wasn't sure Owls was confirmed.)

Overcame some rough odds a couple of times and the refs with some weird calls the other way. Congrats!

I wanted to thank all of you for the kind words. Coachster is decidedly NOT at Plymouth, and now Keene State is the LEC champions for 2022.

in answer to @canderson, the ref thought we we were taunting the other team after our middle got a block, and said any more taunting would result in a yellow card.

I’ll let you know when we get our 1st round NCAA game.

Now I’m planning on getting drunk.

Wait you're playing Juanita? A friend's daughter was on their VB team last season. Shit, I should go to this match - it's only 1:40 away.

A championship is a championship. Don't downgrade it.
A old wise USA coach once told me 'Divisions doesn't matter htere are good teams and bad teams."
You are obviously on a good team.

Congrats on the LEC title. What's the scouting report say about Juniata? And yes, I was in fact watching the selection show live.
Juniata? Just the #2 team in the country. This will be no problem.

Actually, the NCAA really hates us. For the tournament, they'll pay bus transportation, but will only pay for airfare if the trip is more than 500 miles. Keene to Huntingdon PA? 488 miles. That's one long f'ing bus trip.

And there's a regional at Tufts, but we were sent out to PA instead because they want to squeeze any chance we had of being remotely competitive out of us before we even start.

Ah yeah that’s a tough matchup. I know those dumb rules all too well - luckily in my coaching days (tennis at endicott) my furthest ncaa trips were out to Williams. The guy who tookover for had to head to Johns Hopkins, tough break.
Best of luck with the matchup…and the bus trip!
