Any comments on the local teams to this point in the season. I have been to a few games and have already seen some things to change my pre-season thoughts,
while some teams look strong as predicted.
St. Joe's Academy - Everything they have been hyped to be. Defense and setting better than I thought it would be.
Cor Jesu - More balanced than I thought they would be. Don't have enough offense to stay with St. Joe or IWA.
Mater Dei - Already upset by Freeburg. Alot of offense but struggle as predicted with serve receive and defense.
Freeburg - Big across the net. Libero much better than anticipated against Mater Dei. 2 new setters do a decent job. They will continue to get better as the season progresses as neither has set much in the past. I thought the loss of their setter and libero from last year would impact them more.
Edwardsville - one great soph. one good soph. injured MB. no suppoting cast.
Althoff - Better ball control than in past. Not getting as much from experienced setters as they should at this point. Need to find more offense.
