VolleyWrite scorers – take the challenge!!

I had the opportunity to use VolleyWrite to score a DI NCAA Women’s volleyball match recently, and I had an interesting experience.  Try your luck at reading this lineup!!   It’s quite a challenge!

Unfortunately, the lineup was submitted late and it was so hard to read!!  Oh the joys of keeping score!!

Look for the next post to get a hint and the answer!!

Libero Redesignation and VolleyWrite

Redesignating a libero is easy!  VolleyWrite has two ways to do it:

1. Use the Injury button.  When you select the libero as the injured player, your options

Injury Dialog to select libero

When you select “Libero Redesignation”, you get a drop-down box to enter the new libero and to change the jersey (if it was necessary for the player to change to a different number to wear a contrasting jersey).

2. When you click a player on the bench (or use drag and drop action) then click on the libero (in the libero box or on the court – it doesn’t matter), VolleyWrite brings up the Redesignation dialog which allows you to change which player is the libero.

Note that after either of these options, the number of the redesignated libero will be on the bench in red, as the libero may not participate as a libero or a non-libero player for the rest of the set.

Early Round Scoring with VolleyWrite

Congrats to all of the Ohio high schools who competed in the final post-season tournament at Wright State University’s Nutter Center, and to Ursuline Academy (D I), Padua Franciscan (D II), Versailles (D III) and New Bremen (D IV) who took home state titles!  All matches were scored with VolleyWrite, and this year, as it should have been, there was no excitement except on the court!

VolleyWrite makes it easy!

“VolleyWrite has made it much easier to train staff on scoring matches. They’ve made it so easy my sons were scoring our high school matches when they were 11 years old. But more importantly VolleyWrite is an integral part of our 24 team charity high school boys volleyball tournament. Their tournament software is fantastic! It just works! And parents love being able to see live scoring results and standings on their phones. If you’re running a tournament, make sure you are using VolleyWrite!”

-Matt Snyder, Coach at Stow-Munroe Falls High School and co-chair of the Spike for Tykes Volleyball Tournament

VolleyWrite and Windows 10

Attention VolleyWrite scorers using Windows 10:

Last night, during testing (of a new version for release) at a real match, we experienced a random “lock-up” and we gathered the info we needed to figure it out.  The problem is that Windows 10 does not always return the correct system date and time (and based on our internet search, lots of other people found this out the hard way too), and VolleyWrite uses that information when creating the match file.  We are now working on an updated version to release ASAP.

If you experience a problem, please let us know (by sending a Feedback Report), in case Windows 10 has any more “surprises”…

Thank you for scoring with VolleyWrite!
