Please vote for Emily for the Senior Class Award. Chloe has taken the lead again. I've been checking today and her count has been going up steadily all day so they have been very busy voting over there.
Like the announcer for the Fullerton match. Probably a student but professional sounding and most important got the pronunciation of Hawaii's players mostly right. The video was acceptable too except it froze at the end of the 2nd set.
First Big West match over tonight. Long Beach blasted Cal Poly in three straight sets. Still, Long Beach will be two games behind the conference winners. Guess no chance for Long Beach to make the playoffs there.
It's senior night for Irvine and Davis so they are playing hard for their seniors. I don't think they have Hawaii in mind. Rather indirectly by their senior night efforts they are trying to help Hawaii.
Northridge wins the fourth set in extended play to stay alive. UCSB wins third set in extended play for a 2-1 set advantage. Looks like Hawaii might just have to share the conference title with two other teams. But it's not over yet.
Northridge blasted away Davis in the fifth set 15-5. They just pounded kill after kill so effectively. UCSB is also way ahead in the fourth and last set. No way will Irvine catch up this late. So UH will share the conference title with UCSB and Northridge and of course UCSB will get the AQ.
It's officially over. The two underdogs tanked in the last set, probably ran out of gas. Great effort, however by both teams. So now we have just the NCAA Selection Show to look forward to and see how the three conference winners will fare.
LC, I checked espn3 online but no mention of NCAA Selection Show on this coming Sunday. Where did you get your information from? Please let me know. Hope you're still online. Otherwise, Cindy, maybe you can tell me. I don't have a TV.
hollycow, how can anyone cheat in the voting? You can register only once a day to vote unless you use several different computers with different IP addresses. Who would have access to so many computers on a weekend night? Libraries are closed everywhere. Friends?
Last comment, #90 here. I just checked Senior Class Award website and at 9:40 PM our time, Emily Hartong is ahead again. Cheating can work both ways. I'm amazed at how quickly she jumped ahead in two hours, 0.3% (or estimated 75 votes). This is going to be a close race.
Thanks Mauna (#86) for answering my question. So we have nine more days to vote for Emily Hartong. The race is on.
The Fla. player's percentage was going up quite steadily throughout the day and surpassed Emily at aroung 5 p.m. Hawaii time. That means it was happening throughout the early to late evening on the east coast. Sounds right for votes coming from that area. But I agree there is obvious cheating because the numbers were going at a steady rate.
