I’m almost back in Ashland, after spending most of the past 45 days in Copenhagen, as I’m writing this from SFO waiting for my final leg of the journey.

My little girl is 18 today

Volleyball weekend

Three days of continuous volleyball begins now in Eugene at the Oregon Matt Hartner Memorial Classic. Ellie’s 18U Rogue Valley Volleyball Club team should be pretty good.

Ashland High School volleyball takes 6th in state

Yesterday’s results were the best for the Grizzlies since the 2009 team took 3rd in Oregon. Ashland was the victim of the toughest matchup schedule of any team at the tournament. OSAA doesn’t adjust the brackets round by round, even after the first round (in which almost an entire week passes), so that the lowest seeded team plays the top seed, etc. Therefore, Ashland had to face the #2 seed and the #1 seed in their only two losses of the tournament. On the other hand, La Salle Prep (who won the same number of matches as Ashland during the year), came in second in the tournament by beating the #13 and #9 seeded teams before losing to #3-seeded Summit in the finals.

I know traditions are hard to break, but why not have each of the top teams play each of the other top teams over the two days? Seems much more fair to determine the final placements than the current system. All the teams are there sitting around waiting to play anyway.
