This week in volleyball from Coach K

September 26, 2022 v2

I have received a question or two on Wednesday night’s schedule so that usually means even more people may have the same questions.  I will clarify that night:

Wednesday, Sep 28

5:30:  JV Red plays Edgewood JV1 in Varsity Gym

          JV Black plays Edgewood JV2 in Fieldhouse

7:00:  Varsity plays Edgewood in Varsity Gym

          JV White plays Edgewood JV1 in Fieldhouse

The Varsity Gym schedule is staying the same; that’s why I didn’t mention it in the clarification but both JV Red and Varsity are still playing their scheduled matches.

Hope this helps.

Have a great day

Well, another This Week in Volleyball and another Monday correction.  I guess it’s a good thing I send these out on Sunday so we can get all our details ironed out right away on Monday!

In any case, there are a couple pieces of information I have for upcoming events:

1.  Wednesday, Sep 28:  in the interest of more competitive matches the Edgewood coaches would rather have their JV1 team play our JV White as they feel it would be a better fit for both teams.  So, we will have the following schedule modification for Wednesday:

5:30:  JV Black plays Edgewood JV2 in the Fieldhouse

7:00:  JV White plays Edgewood JV1 in the Fieldhouse

So JV White and JV Black will just switch the times they play.

2.  Thursday, 10/6:  We have finalized details for this date.  JV White is going to DeForest to play their club team.  Match time will be 7:00pm.  We are working with the district to see about bus availability.

3.  Monday, 10/10:   We have finalized details for this date.  JV Red is going to DeForest to play their club team.  Match time will be 7:00pm.  We are working with the district to see about bus availability.

4.  Also, just a reminder that the Kwik Trip car wash fundraiser ends this Thursday.  Players can bring in their sheets and money on that day.

Sorry for the later weekly update, but last week was a busy one and this week will be as well for a couple teams!  First, let’s take a look at what happened last week:

Madison West- overall a good Wednesday as JV White, JV Red and Varsity picked up wins over West.

JV White recovered from a tough pool play round to win the bronze bracket at the Burlington Invite

JV Red went to the tough Kettle Moraine JV tournament and took third place, beating tough rival Wauwatosa East before their semifinal loss

Varsity took 3rd place at the Cardinal Invite, which is one of the toughest tournaments of the entire season.  The day included wins over the #6, #7 and #11 ranked teams in the state- nice job!  Special thanks to all JV Black players, parents, girls volleyball players, Varsity parents and other volunteers that helped make this amazing event a success!!!

SCHEDULE CHANGES COMING UP:

There are a couple additions to our schedule (some are still being confirmed)

1.  Thu, Oct 6:  JV White is tentatively scheduled to go to DeForest to play their club team.  This is still being confirmed.
2.  Mon, Oct 10:  JV Red is tentatively scheduled to go to DeForest to play their club team.  This is still being confirmed.

3.  We at Middleton have been assigned host duties for the Big 8 Varsity Conference Tournament taking place on Friday, Oct 14.  This is a tough night since it is also homecoming, but that is our assignment.  We will need help from JV Red (and possibly JV White) to host the event.  Matches should begin at 5:00pm and hopefully be done by 8:00pm.  More details to come on this, but save the date!
