Greetings NJ Volleyball fans…

An updated ranking was completed on Sunday, October 31. The computer algorithm reinstated Immaculate Heart Academy in the #1 slot after this past weeks play. For every team’s ranking in the state, visit https://njpowerranking.com/2021/10/31/njp-ranking-8-10-31/

The new ranking analysis has been plugged into the brackets going forward…

We launched our NJP Clip of the Year contest for the Girl’s high school season tonight. For details, go here… https://njpowerranking.com/2021/11/02/girls-njp-clip-of-the-year-contest/

The NJP Predictor was 27-3 in round 2 of the state playoffs on Monday. The higher seed win-loss record was 24-6. Here is a side by side comparison of the two for the entire state playoff thus far…

This time of year is the absolute best for watching competitive and exciting volleyball games at the high school level. As playoffs heat up, and the matches become bigger and bigger, passion and determination drips from players and coaches making for fan frenzied games that can go to the last point. But the absolute worst part of this time of year is that when each game occurs, it signals the end of the season for coaches, players, and team fans that fall short on any given night. By Wednesday night, we will be down to just 90 teams still playing and in a week, just 36 or about ten percent of all teams in the state.

Social media is filled with players giving tribute, especially seniors, as they wind down their high school career. We want to post just a few of those here… Their words are heartfelt and worth sharing…
