Volleyball State Polls
Please start submitting your team overall records as I will add those to the poll beginning September 8, 2015.
I truly appreciate all your comments (even the harsh ones); we maintain the poll to support girl’s athletics. The final measure is earned on the court as teams play to a state championship in November.
