  • 2020 VB and Italy . . .

    Perhaps this has been discussed already, but will the Shockers travel to Italy this summer? . . .

    Outlook for a season? . . .
    If you take the high road, you won't find much traffic there . . .

    Probably not....for 2 reasons. I did not see Gio on the roster.

      The athletic department got two big chunks of change at the raffle for the trip. I can’t remember the value but I think it was north of 15 grand each. How does that work if there is not a trip?

        Not all that surprising that Gio not listed on he roster but, assuming she would have been fully recovered and available, still be big blow. Of course, who knows whether or not they will even be playing this fall.

          If one wishes to connect dots: Had there been no COVID-19, the team would have been going on their trip this summer and, I'm pretty sure,Gio with them.

          What COVID-19 has created, Gio healthy or not, no trip, who knows about the season, no reason for Gio to stay with the team. She's given a lot to the program and time to think of her future, in or out of playing volleyball.

              Gio ready to transfer to Wisconsin, two or one year left? Anyone know for sure?

                I think she has 1 year left under the 5 years to play 4 rule. She was at WSU for 4 years. Played 11 games as a freshman but somehow received a medical redshirt waiver. Played the next 2 years as a redshirt freshman and sophomore. She mIssed her full junior season last year due to injury. I suppose there is a possibility that she could apply and receive a 1-year clock extension ala Grant Gibbs so she could play 2 more years.

                Not sure what's behind her transferring but based on how Lambo has described her she really hates losing. Could be she is looking at another reset for the Shocks with another pretty inexperienced team this year and just wanted to go somewhere she could win big and get to play in an NCAA Tournament. Unlikely, the Shocks will be there this next season assuming they play at all.
