This year has been a year of unknowns for sure. It appears the state is moving forward with high school athletics as fall practices kicked off this past week. MSHSAA did announce yesterday an alternative spring option for schools unable to compete in the coming months. Due to the uncertainty, we are still waiting for the new classifications for volleyball. This fall, Missouri will move to 5 classes for the sport. While we can play the guessing game on who will move up to 5, who stays 4, who moves up to 4 from 3, etc, we won’t do that at this time. However, let’s take a look at who are the early favorites to make it to the final four in the upper classes based on where they were placed last year.
