Betsy Layne, Allen Central, South Laurel, and Southwestern all can win it. The winner will come from one of these teams.

Should have asked on the last post. Is this considered a real game that will be conted in your won lost record or is this just a scrimmage? Are games played and scored like in the regular season?

According to the pre-season rankings by KVCA, the tourney will have 4 pre-season #1 teams playing. This is probably the strongest field in the 3yrs. of the tourney.
#1's are :
Allen Cent. #1 in 15th & 25th overall in state (congrats)
Ashland #1 in 16th
Southwestern #1 in 12th
South Laurel #1 in 13th
The top 5 pre-season 15th region teams are playing,also Rowan Co.,Middlesboro,Powell Co. are ranked for the pre-season

Sorry about the grammar.

Who has a vote in these polls? Coaches who attended the meeting prior or during the BGSG? Were the coaches in this organization who did not attend this meeting, or have a team in the games allowed a proxy to vote for their team?

You need to get your facts straight before making any comments on P'burg's tourney.

Fact is Piarist was invited and accepted.
Fact is Piarist got the tourney schedule and then they dropped out.
Fact is they were replaced and the tourney went on.

Can't speak for Allen Central's pre-season event but I'd bet that they were invited as well.

I've got the facts, and matter of fact I've got the e-mail saved from Piarist's AD saying that Piarist could not play in our tourney due to a illness in Darlene's family. She would be out of town or with the family.

No problem, I've got it........ Ask Kevin Tackett (your AD) to show you the e-mail, he's the one who sent it. Also tell him to produce the e-mail that was sent with Piarist's tourney schedule on it. They were in a pool with Betsy Layne, South Laurel, East Ridge & Powell Co.(who took Bell Co.'s place, they dropped out a couple days before Piarist), Pike Co. Cent then took Piarist place to complete the pool.

Yes, all matches played in the tourney are considered for season records. The tourney counts as one of three tournaments each volleyball team is allowed to have during regular season. The tourneys count as one date. All schools are allowed 20 dates of which three can be tourneys. Conference teams playing each other in a tourney, such as this or the All 'A' does not count toward the conference record, such as Allen Central versus Betsy Layne or Betsy Layne versus South Floyd or South Floyd versus Prestonsburg or Prestonsburg versus Piarist, etc. If you go on the KHSAA Riherd's Scoreboard, click on the school you want to view, and you will see that all matches played in the tourney count toward their seasonal record. There are no 'scrimmages' after the first day of the season begins and that was August 9th.

All coaches who are members of the KVCA receive a ballot via email, they vote, and either email or fax it back to KVCA. All coaches are asked to join the KVCA and if they don't they are doing a grave injustice to their teams, their players, and their schools. The KVCA gets email addresses for the coaches and send out emails asking them to join and, also mail letters to each school that has a volleyball program. There are no proxy votes because there are no meetings to cast a ballot; it is all done by email and faxing. Other than having to pay the fee to be a member of the KVCA, there is no reason a coach should not join in order to better their sport.

I do not know the source of your information but it is WRONG!

During the February - March time frame, scheduling for the upcoming season is done in earnest. It is during that time that Allen Central sends out a reminder via email about the pre-season tournament to all coaches, ADs, and Principals stating when the preseason tourney / referee clinic will be held and they are asked to respond if they are interested in participating (at the same time, they are asked to confirm the dates for regular season matches). Remember, there is no entrance fee for this tournament so there are always plenty of respondents. 14 schools showed interest and one school dropped out a week before the scheduled date. If they did not respond it is believed that they do not want to participate, then they are not included in the preseason tourney. Another school, out of county and region, asked if they could participate five days prior and they were accommodated. The regular season dates with Piarist were confirmed and adjusted as needed (Piarist does not have air conditioning) which indicates to me that Piarist received the invitation via email. Fact is if Piarist wanted to be in it, they would have been.

On a side note, I was dismayed to see several Piarist players cheering against Allen Central in every game they played at the Food City Tourney, which includes teams outside of the county. Conference rivalry is a good thing but Allen Central players are strongly encouraged to cheer for in-county/in-district teams when playing teams outside the district.

There is some serious misinformation being given to you and your players. Good luck in your season.

Great Volleyball Tournament again held in Prestonsburg All the teams had a great two days of volleyball and it was some of the best games in the area. Too bad Piarist High School once again decided not to play in these games. it would be a great time for the Piarist players but maybe next year girl's your coach will take you

There was no disrespect to the girls or Piarist, the Piarist AD had the good sense to request all matches in the first of the season (August) be played in gyms with air conditioning. Allen Central concurred with the Piarist request and flip-flopped its scheduled matches. As you must be aware, Piarist is a PRIVATE school, which means they do not get Public funding. They have to request and apply for grants to get funding.

If you have any more questions, please ask and I will be more than happy to find answers for you but please stop insinuating that it is everyone else's fault because your team didn't participate in the preseason or Food City Tourneys.

Why do you believe that anyone hates Piarist and their kids? That just seems unbelievable and does not pass the common sense test! The air conditioning has nothing to do with the tourneys. The point was, your school was aware of the preseason tourney at Allen Central because they responded to the regular season scheduling email with a request that the first game be played at Allen Central because there was no air conditioning at Piarist.

It was a great tournament. Prestonsburg needs to be commended for it. Congrats to AC. Everyone played hard and there was some great volleyball played. It showed how far eastern ky volleyball has come. This years 15th regional champs could be anybody. It will be a very interesting season.
