2019 PRESSEASON 2A VOLLEYBALL RANKINGS


With the Fall 2019 season upon us, let’s take a look at Volleyball. We’ll break down each category for each class and then based on the results come up with our preseason rankings for each class using number of returning players, last years record, and their standings in kills, aces, digs, successful serves, and blocks. We also included a ‘Return Score’ which is the addition of the winning percentage plus the return percentage, the higher the number, the higher winning percentage and returning players. The higher the number, the better likelihood of a successful 2019 season.
