    I believe Sarah will be here for the trip. I hope the news is bigger than that.

      Pure speculation, but if I had to wager, I'd say it's the official announcement that WSU will host the 2024 AAC Volleyball Tournament. Pure guess.

        UAB released their schedule.

        Their non-con schedule didn't really impress me. Auburn, Cincy, and Samford look like the three toughest teams they face next season.

        Their schedule didn't really clear up the byes. We do play them twice this year. Again all Friday/Sunday games except for a couple of Wednesday matches but there are still only two matches per week. The Wednesday matches just replaced a Friday or a Sunday match that week.

        9/27 Home- Tulsa
        9/29 Away- Memphis

        10/2 Away- Tulane <--Wednesday match
        10/4 Home- WSU 7PM (eastern?) (Friday)

        10/11 Home- Temple
        10/13 Home- Charlotte

        10/18 Away- UTSA
        10/20 Home- Tulane

        10/25 Away- Tulsa
        10/27 Away- WSU 6PM (eastern?)

        11/1 Home- North Texas
        11/3 Home- ECU

        11/6 Home- Memphis <--Wednesday match
        11/10 Away- Rice (Sunday)

        11/15 Away- FAU
        11/17 Away- South Florida


        Last three games being away bites for them. The teams they play twice- Tulsa, Memphis, Tulane, and WSU- are the first four games on their conference schedule.

          Could be that we are playing Nebraska at Nebraska in non-con. Nah, probably not a big enough announcement. Maybe it's that we are hosting a tourney just before the conference starts (9/19-9/21).


          9/14 (Sat) Nebraska. We will probably be playing Arizona State this weekend. Nebraska plays Arizona State on Friday 9/13.

          9/20 (Fri) Northern Colorado (UNC). Omaha and Cal Poly will also be here this week (Thur-Sat)


          The AAC post season tournament will be 8 teams

              There's a picture posted on X of the team practicing in Brazil. Pretty clearly there are 16 dressed players. I wonder who the 16th is? There are 13 on the roster and I'm assuming Sarah Barham and Abby Whatton are there too. That would be 15. Who is 16?

                That's very hard to say. If had to guess I would go with Gracie Morrow only because she is a local girl. That is about as far from a bankable speculation as you can get.

                Actually, I think there may be as many as 18 players dressed and possibly 1 who is not dressed. There are the 12 on the court. 1 behind the left baseline, 2 on the far sideline (one of them appears to be sitting against the wall mostly hidden by the net players on the right side of the court), and 3 on the near sideline (inlcuding the redhead sitting at the table which I think may be Reagan Anderson.

                I was trying to find Gabi Maas as she has a distinctive body type. Gabi does not appear to be on the court. She might be the mostly obscured player squatting against the wall on the far side of the court. However, the girl in the black sweat suit standing next to the small blue table on the near side looks very much like Gabi.

                  They put a team picture on X a few hours ago. 19 players in the picture, but I don't know who is who from the new Shockers. Gabi is not in the picture. She might be taking the picture, but it looks like she might not have made the trip. Good to see Izzi back out on the court.

                  I hope they are having a great time both on and off the court. It looks like it.

                    Haven't seen anything in the way of a match schedule but good chance they may have one tomorrow. Now whether or not we hear anything about any of the matches remains to be seen.

                      Rough math....please correct where I screw up.

                      Lambo announced 8 signees plus transfers Sarah Barham, Abby Whatton and HS Sydney Lafferty.

                      The current roster has 13 listed. Newbies Sarah Musial and Alyssa Gonzales are included in those 13. 13 + 11 - 2 (already on roster) = 22 total student athletes. 19 pictured + Gabi. Only 2 newbies didn't make the trip?

                      Now to identifying the pic:

                      B1 Haley Wolfe
                      B2 Morgan Stout
                      B3 Emerson Wilford
                      B4 Alyssa Gonzales
                      B5 Izzy Strand
                      B6
                      B7
                      B8 Sarah Barham
                      B9
                      B10
                      B11

                      F7
                      F8

                        RH: Lamb Plans On An "Active And Prosperous" Trip

                        https://goshockers.com/news/2024/5/2...rous-trip.aspx

                        According to this article Grace Hett and Olivia Brown, both defensive specialists are on the trip.

                        Gabi is definitely not playing. Not sure if she made the trip though.

                        Hett and Brown are, unexpectedly, part of a group Lamb is watching closely on the trip. Returning libero Gabi Maas, who led WSU with 496 digs in 2023 is out with an injury.


                        My guesses:

                        B1 Haley Wolfe
                        B2 Morgan Stout
                        B3 Emerson Wilford
                        B4 Alyssa Gonzales
                        B5 Izzy Strand​
                        B6 Nadia Wasilewski
                        B7 Simone Grieser
                        B8 Sarah Barham
                        B9 Maddie Wilson​
                        B10 Abby Whatton
                        B11 Sarah Musial

                        F1 Brooklyn Leggett
                        F2 Katie Galligan
                        F3 Grace Hett
                        F4 Annalie Heliste
                        F5 Olivia Brown
                        F6 Reagan Anderson
                        F7 Gracie Morrow
                        F8 Allie Paulsen

                        M1 Gabi Maas
                        M2 Ava Anderson
                        M3 Sydney Lafferty

                        Not sure I have aced it but I think I have a passing grade.

                          Not 100% sure, but I think:

                          B9- Maddie Wilson
                          B10- Abby Whatton
                          F1- Brooklyn Leggett
                          F8- Allie Paulsen

                            That agrees with what I came up with.

                                Yeah, forgot about her. I don't think she is in the photo. She was a late signee so may not have had time to get her passport in place. That would be your 3 missing player.
