Hi NJ Volleyball Fans…

It was semi-final Friday and 16 more teams advance and 16 have had their season end. For the full “Bracketology” update, visit https://njpowerranking.com/njp-spring-girls-bracketology/

Some of you have been asking, what happens after Tuesday? How do we get down to the team participating in the Tournament of Champions. According to the NJSIAA standards, we will be moving forward toward Group Champions. So the North 1 and North 2 Sectional champs will play each other and advance to play the winner of the Central vs South sectional in each Group. The result will be winner of each Group which will advance to the TOC. So we will have 6 group state champs playing in the TOC. Group 1, 2, 3, 4 and NP A and NPB. Those teams are seeded with the top 2 teams getting the bye. We eventually will have one Tournament of Champion winner. This is detailed on the NJSIAA website and below for quick reference…

November 21 will conclude the season.

This weekend, we will breakdown all of the public sectional final matches and try to give some further insights on the games, players, and teams.

Stay tuned…

Our Clip of the Year deadline is this Sunday… make sure to get your clip entered by the end of the weekend…

We have also started our NJP annual awards. These will be announced shortly after the season ends. There are a wide variety of awards for both player, teams, and coaches. All of our NJP awards are put together to recognize accomplishments. With over 300 teams, it is a major undertaking. We base our awards on math. Which makes our awards different than others. Not better or worse, just different. Our formulas can’t measure heart and passion unless it becomes a new statistic that we track. Have not figured out the formula for that yet.

At the season conclusion, we will be shifting to covering Men’s college volleyball in NJ and then on to the boys high school season. Our blog will continue to cover a wide variety of topics across all volleyball genre’s so make sure to stay in touch and check us out when you can.

We hope you continue to enjoy our coverage. It’s a bit different. A little quirky… but hopefully entertaining and the something different you have been looking for when it comes to volleyball in NJ. Thanks to all the players, coaches, and fans, for putting up with our pitiful sense of humor, and focus on the math which often results in self promotion of what we think are big achievements in our rating and ranking formulas. But in the end, it all doesn’t matter. When you think back about high school volleyball, you’re not going to remember us… you will remember the great times you had with teammates, the big wins when people said it couldn’t be done, and times with your friends that you just can never get back… embrace the collateral beauty of the season ending… and keep your passion always for the game that you love!
