  1. As you now coach, it’s an amazing, fast moving sport. Played and coached like a chess mass in a pinball machine. The other place to catch a ton of great smaller school women’s volleyball in on ESPN 3 during the season. I bet I can choose from at least 8-10 matches to watch. Great article and info.
