This year marked the first time the state of Colorado used VolleyWrite to score its state tournament. The CHSAA held their tournament on Nov. 8, 9 and 20 at the Denver Coliseum. The floor had 5 courts set up (one for each division), so there was a lot going on!!
We’re looking forward to helping out again next year!
Are you curious about the lineup from the last post?
If so, here’s the lineup sheet with the lineups for all three sets in the match to help you out. (Yes, the team name has been removed to “protect the innocent”!)
As it turns out, the starting players for set 1 were 25, 2c, 16, 18, 23, 3 and L1. The starting players for set 2 were 8, 25, 2c, 16, 18, 23 and L1. The starting players for set 3 were 25, 2c, 16, 18, 23, 3 and L1. If you got them all correct, you’re really good!!!
Lineups like this example make scoring both fun and challenging!
Chris Wakefield, coach of the West End High School volleyball team in Richmond, VA, hosted a 24-team JV tournament at the Richmond Volleyball Club on Saturday, October 13th. The varsity players scored on the 8 courts using VolleyWrite, and it was a success!!
Don’t you wish your scorer was this happy scoring your matches?
Good volleyball and good scoring make for smooth sailing. It’s all good…
Yesterday, I was scoring a DI match and had an odd situation. One UC player (the libero) served for 17 straight points! The good thing was that I was scoring with VolleyWrite, so I didn’t have to “borrow” any space from the another service position. I didn’t have to stress over the fact that I was running out of space for service position VI. Yay!
When we tell people that we have created VolleyWrite Volleyball Scoring Software, the response is, “Oh, so you do stats”. When we first started, NCAA Women, the NFHS and USA Volleyball did not have the same title for the person keeping score. “Scorekeeper” was commonly used. Now, however, all three of these associations do refer to the person at the scoring table as the “Scorer”. So don’t get confused! The important this is that you are scoring – with VolleyWrite!
The OHSAA will again be using VolleyWrite to score the state final volleyball tournament this week on Thursday, November 9, Friday, November 10, and Saturday, November 11 at the Nutter Center at Wright State University.
“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!”
