Honestly - Is this the best we can get as far as coverage of Free State vs LHS volleyball? This is the city rivalry. This is the match between LHS, who has already received major coverage for having returning players who worked out together this summer, for "sweeping" a quad, etc and Free State , who has gotten squat in the the press. Where is the mention of the World cup point? Would it have taken LHS winning for this "article" to have been interesting or exciting? Come on LJWorld - a little love for the "other" hometown 6A team! Way to go Free State for playing with intensity and heart despite missing two key players due to injury and illness. Way to go Chantay, Marissa, Alex, Meaghan, Mariah, Adele, Reilly and Katelyn. Thanks for your help, Paige. We missed you Clare and Rachel. Go Firebirds!

I think since it was part of a Quad and not a dual, that the significance wasnt the same. But, in all reality, a game is a game

Great match for the crowd - there were stunning hits, incredible saves, crushing blocks, heartbreaking errors and some really bad line judging. Everything that makes volleyball a blast to watch!

I agree volleydad! Both teams played great at times, not so great at others, but neither team quit... the match mattered to the players, coaches and fans. LHS is off to a great start in their season at 12-6 and Free State is fighting hard and being very competitive. ...looking forward watching both teams finish strong!
