Volleyball: Section 1 tournament recap

Another Section 1 volleyball tournament is in the books. Fifty-three matches played, four champions crowned, way too many hours worked, and not nearly enough hours of sleep taken.

Hendrick Hudson defeated Yorktown during Section 1 Class A girls volleyball quarterfinal at Hendrick Hudson High School in Montrose Nov. 1, 2016.

To make everyone’s life (including my own) a little more convenient, I’ve included every single link from this year’s tournament in one post so that you can easily find whatever it is you’re looking for. I’ve listed the posts below in chronological order, starting with pre-tournament information and ending with my gamers from the section finals.

For those curious, my Zacketology predictions finished at 45-8, for a winning percentage of 84.9 percent. While that percentage ranks third overall in my six years on the beat, this was the first year I ever correctly predicted every champion. My overall record in the Section 1 tournament now stands at 277-50, which works out to an 84.7 winning percentage. Over that time, I’ve correctly predicted 20 of 29 possible champions.
