I really hope Maddie Schermerhorn returns. She would anchor the team so well. If she doesn’t, who is our libero-in-waiting?Tightly contested 3rd set that ended on a disputed long ball challenged by Dave Shondell for a touch but the original call stood. LV wins the set 25-23 and sweeps the match.
End of the road for the seniors unless some decide to come back for a 5th year. Next year I think we will be better than our record this year of 21-11.
I do not know for certain who would take over the libero position if Schermerhorn chooses to not return but possibilities are Ali Hornung, who filled in for Schermerhorn while she was injured, or incoming freshman Julia Kane who has played libero for her club team the last two years. I know Dave was very complimentary of Ali's play during her substitution for Maddie.I really hope Maddie Schermerhorn returns. She would anchor the team so well. If she doesn’t, who is our libero-in-waiting?
I’ve said the same thing numerous times about Maddie returning. She lost a year of starting because Otec returned the extra year, I hope Coach gives her the option to come back. As for others returning, maybe 1 of Ellis, Koch, Chinn return, some either or told there’s no room or transfer for a 5th season elsewhere, I could see Ellis for sure doing that. Emma is inconsistent, when on she’s great, when she isn’t she struggles, maybe that’s because of on again/off again PT. She could be a great get for a solid program looking for a experienced hitter.I really hope Maddie Schermerhorn returns. She would anchor the team so well.

Now Louisville by 18-14. Purdue making more than normal service errors and net violations. Can't afford to give this point. LV amazingly has seven blocks to our one.
Hope that McCutcheon girl is the real deal. Who do they lose to graduation?Dave just posted that next year’s schedule, when finalized, will be even stiffer than this year’s. “At least four pre-conference matches and six (or more) B1G contests vs. 2022 sweet 16 teams. Buckle-up.
Balensiefer and Clayton were grad transfers so they are done. The rest of the seniors - Torrance, Chinn, Koch, Ellis and Schermerhorn - are, I think, all eligible to return for a COVID year If Coach wants to make space for them. I am pretty certain most will not return but holding out hope for, at the least, Schermerhorn as she will be hard to replace at the libero position.Hope that McCutcheon girl is the real deal. Who do they lose to graduation?
