The coaches have to input their stats into MaxPreps, which has public access. Many coaches do not do this, not because they are lazy, but because they feel that an opposing team will scout you through the stats. Our HS coach offered to input the senior girls stats into Maxpreps if they wanted to be considered for this award. The five girls who were on the "watch list" all declined thinking the stats would be used to gain insight on their team. I know a few other highly competitive coaches who also feel this way.
It's a really fun match to see. The players have seen each other a lot over the course of their club and/or USA volleyball years and it's the last time they'll see each other before they head off to the college of their choice. It's also an exciting weekend with the NCAA finals combined with it. It's really nice watching the future of volleyball playing one last fun match. Good luck to all the seniors out there, to all the nominees and to those who made the AA team. ENJOY! :-)
