Looks to be a very interesting one here in the mountain state as the state volleyball tournament starts to serve up on Friday morning. And the football playoffs kickoff on Friday night. And college basketball for Marshall starts on Friday night for the Herd. West Virginia basketball does not tip off until Monday at 11:509pm against Gonzaga.
I will leave the volleyball up to Joe Ferretti. As his daughters are competing this weekend. So good luck to both Hedgesville and Mussleman as they both try to capture a state volleyball title.
Now on to some familiar territory for me.
Friday Mussleman travels to Charleston to take on a very hot Capital team. Both come in with a 7-3 record. Mussleman comes in as a 10 seed and Capital come in as a 7 seed. Capital pretty muh owned Ryan Switzer and the George Washington Patriots when they played one another on October 19th. Capital won that game 35-13. Capital is winners of there last 3 in a row and they did so in Regan/Mondale fashion. But i can see this being a very interesting game and maybe the Appleman pull off an upset in that game. Thats why they play it on the field and not on paper. Be sure to tune into that game Friday as WEPM will bring you all the action from the "Capital City" with a 7:30 kickoff.
Winner of the previously mentioned game plays the winner of this game
Saturday Woodrow Wilson comes to Martinsburg to take on the Bulldogs as that is a 15/2 game. Landslide victory for the Bulldogs here.as Woodrow comes in with a 6-4 record the Bulldogs come in with a 9-1 record.Many are picking the Bulldogs to win the state title even though they have a rocky road ahead but the journey starts Saturday and that game can be heard on WEPM as well with a 1:30 kickoff. But again thats why the game is played on the field not on paper.
Football for sure shapes up to be interesting weekend
On to Marshall hoops. They tip off Friday at 7pm against Longwood. And go to Philly on Sunday to take on Villanova at 1pm. There has been much hype on this team. Got a vote USA Today poll. They came off going to the NIT last year and getting to the CUSA tournament championship game. So alot of hype there. Do they live up to it? It will be a wait and see process.I do not know if they do or they do not that is why we will have to watch.
WVU does not go until Monday at 11:59 (I say Tuesday at midnight but thanks for the 11:59 would not get mesed up thinking the game is Tuesday). Looks be a fun season there as well.
So looks be a fun and interesting weekend have fun and watch/listen to as much of it as you can.
