RE: UT Volleyball 2017
Rockets could never put it together in set 4, and lose it 25-17. Not a good performance tonight. Quck turnaround to play a really good WMU team tomorrow, so not much time to get things fixed up.

RE: UT Volleyball 2017
Rockets have split the 1st 2 sets against 1st place WMU. Playing a bit better than yesterday. Need to keep it up to close out this one.

RE: UT Volleyball 2017
Rockets took the third with a lot of help from WMU errors. Then the Rockets sprinted out to a 9 point (yes 9) lead in the 4th. Not wanting to have a set without drama, WMU closed it to within 2 at one point, but the Rockets made plays at the end to take it 25-21. Beasley & Vidourek led the Rockets with 12 kills apiece. Beasley also added an incredible 10 blocks.

Amazingly, the Rockets have now defeated the 2 best teams in the west, WMU and Ball State, but lost to all the west bottom tier teams, including NIU who only has 2 other wins all season. What a roller coaster.

Nice win. Here's a link to the story on the UT site. Up next - trips to Ohio and Kent State.

RE: UT Volleyball 2017
Beasley has been outstanding this season.

As I recall, her twin younger sisters have both verballed to UT for 2018, and that one or both of them have broken school records that Annie set in HS.

RE: UT Volleyball 2017
According to live stats, Rockets have defeated OU, @ Athens in 5 sets.

Rockets were up 2 sets to 1, but OU came back to take the 4th and ran out to a lead in the 5th, but the Rockets came back and won in extra time 19-17. Rockets got a lot of help from OU with 36 errors. Seems to be a far cry from the OU teams that not long ago absolutely dominated the MAC.

3 Rockets in double figure kills - Vidourek 16, Thomas 15 and Beasley 10. Vidourek had a double-double adding 10 blocks. 2 Rockets with over 30 digs in Leonard and Bakaitis. Townsend also had a double-double with 46 assists and 12 digs.

Rockets move to 4-3 in MAC play.

I line judge HS volleyball in Cleveland area. I wonder if Ava Rauser from rocky river is on their recruiting list. She’d be an instant impact

Isn't OU a bit of a MAC power in VB?

Yes, had a long run since around 2000 thru 2015 where they were far and away the class of the conference most seasons. Went to the NCAAs a number of times and won several matches. Last year they had a bit of a down season and this year so far they are only 9-12 overall, 3-4 in the MAC.
