    You must have been in a hurry when you typed this entry. Today is April 4, not April 11. And UH at #5 is 3-3, not 5-5. 🙂

  2. Cindy Luis:

    Yep, you're right.

  3. Warriorfan:

    That match against Irvine valley will be interesting only because some of those Irvine Valley girls could end up as rainbow wahine next season.

  4. Warriorfan:

    So I just heard the AVCA is changing the name to Beach volleyball instead of sand. I hope this is true. It should be called beach volleyball, it was called that at the Olympics in London ( where there are no beaches) so it should be called that in the NCAA too.

    hadn't heard that. The thinking initially was to encourage non-beach area schools to take up the sport by being more generic with sand.
    agree WF that some of tho IVC players could be at UH, as Mendoza did.
