It's mid-January and I've digested my favorite ten memories, experiences, sets, plays, and matches I've witnessed and experienced in 2019.

10. Coach Connections new and old - Bryan Paliza - New  Trier Tournament: Third Weekend on the job and I bump into one of the many coaches I have had the pleasure to coach with. Bryan Paliza, Sky High Coach was at the New Trier tournament and we got caught up since we both coached USAV Boy's

 High Performance in 2012. New Trier won the tournament in a three-set barn burner against Loyola Academy. Shout outs to Craig Dyer (Creighton University) Dan 

Ames (Head Coach, Aurora University) Kyle and Melissa Masterson and Keith Kujawa (AdversityVBC), Sue Keck (First Alliance VBC) who I saw out and about this season! 

9. I know where Newark is now.

The back to back state champs, Newark controlled the IHSA 1A bracket and the court in running away with the title, again. Don't let the size fool you, their district is small but mighty as they are a dynasty in the making.

8. The Wheaton Warrenville South Story.
