OK, my rant this week will be about Class AAAA. The only teams in that class that play a tough schedule are Columbus, Marist, and Sandy Creek. Why in the world would you rank Veterans at No. 2 — they don’t play any school that has a quality volleyball program!! Don’t just look at the records — use some actual judgment!!!!!

V-ball Guy –

Thank goodness there’s a playoff.. The true champions are crowned.. This is not D1 college football. The polls in all other forms are good for banter…

V_Ball Guy, have you seen Warhawks play? Perhaps you caught their play date when they made Harris County look like a Bottom 10 instead of a top 10. Defeated 6A Rockdale also..

Oh sorry, missed that big win over Harris County and Rockdale County, two volleyball hot beds. Don’t forget the two victories over West Laurens (last match 25-4, 25-6), who Veterans is scheduled to play twice more this year. Yes, Veterans has built itself a solid schedule of hard play and the number of wins is indicative of superior skill not weak opponents. Go ahead and place the order now for the state ring.
