With Whitworth, PLU and UPS all likely to be in the tournament, it is a distinct possibility that the West Regional will be in Tacoma starting either Thursday or Friday.

One of the biggest stats was from the serving line where Kentlake had 25 aces, but also had 22 service errors. Ginger Nason led the Falcons with 9 aces (one off the school record held by Courtney Thompson, Hannah Merrit and Kathy Taylor) while Natalie Berube had 6 (and did not serve in game 4).
The Falcons next head to Wenatchee for the Wenatchee Invite on Saturday and then return home for Senior Night against Auburn Riverside on Tuesday.
Kentlake and TJ are both 1-7 on the year, but TJ has only won four sets all year.
- Synergy VBC - a new club in Maple Valley run by long-time local coach Jeff Potter. The club will have U12, U14 and U16 teams this year and will not travel nationally.One of the lowest prices of the local clubs. Obviously no track record but Potter knows the market very well.
- Pacific Coast VBA - a relaunch of the venerable Saturday's Warriors VBC with "higher sights". Stated goal to compete on a national basis and against the teams like KJ and Puget Sound. Prices reflect the increased travel and expectations, so it will be interesting to see how their old market responds. Saturday's Warriors filled a very well defined niche that PCVBA is going away from.
- Jammin' VBC - Have renovated the gyms at Camp Berachah/Ranier Christian HS and will practice there this year.
- Puget Sound VBA - Moving into new facility at South Hill Mall in cooperation with Competitive Edge. Finishes the "break" from the old ownership based in Fife. Change means even a longer commute from the Kent/Covington area but should be a nicer facility.
- Lake Tapps VBC - Recently took over the facility of Puget Sound Gymnastics and is turning it into a volleyball/basketball facility called "The Five12 Courts". It is in "East" Puyallup about a mile due east of the Puyallup Fair grounds. A much longer commute from Kent, but should be a nice facility.
- KJVBC - U15/U16: November 17, 7:30pm @ Kentwood HS
U17/18: November 19, 7:30pm @ Kentwood HS
Callbacks for U15-U18: Saturday, November 20th, 12:30pm - 3:30pm

U16- Wednesday, November 17th 7:30pm at Green River Community College Gym Main Campus
U17-U18- Sunday, November 21st 3:00pm at Kentridge High School

- U15: KJ callbacks with PCVBA, Synergy U16 (but PCVBA and Synergy do not conflict)
- U16: KJ and PCVBA
Jammin' ends at noon and Synergy starts at noon.
- U17/U18:None, but would have to hurry to go from PSVBA to KJ callbacks

The top three seeds in the tournament are Woodinville (6-4), Wenatchee (8-2) and Marysville-Pilchuck (4-4).
The team will leave on Friday afternoon, probably after 5th period but Coach Behrens will send home a schedule today.
If you do a Google Maps search on "Wenatchee High School" you will probably get Eastmont HS. That is not the right one. Wenatchee HS is by Triangle Park at 1101 Millerdale Ave (NOT 101, sorry about that, I had it wrong earlier).
Kentlake rushed out to a 8-1 lead in Game 1 and played the best volleyball of the season in that set. They were looking very good together and played exceptionally, finally winning 25-20 after Kentridge recovered some towards the end. Unfortunately, game two was the reverse with Kentridge getting out to a quick lead and cruising to a 25-14 victory. Game three was a close affair from the start with Kenlake staving off game point and then taking the game 28-26. Unfortunately, Kentridge was clicking in game 4 and won 25-12, despite the hour long delay. Kentridge then pulled out to a quick 8-4 lead in game five, but Kentlake came back to pull to 13-12. Unfortunately Kentridge finished off the game 15-13.
Kentlake faces 1-7 Thomas Jefferson, Coach Behrens' old school, on Wednesday. TJ has won five sets all year, none in league action.

So, the game is officially an away match. Since it is the only match that week, we will not have another home contest until Monday, October 11th against Kentridge.
The bus will leave for Tahoma at 4:45pm from Kentlake.

We will host a barbeque before the game at 3:45pm. All players will get a free hamburger or chicken sandwich. We will also have a limited amount of cheese pizza for any vegetarians. Parents and others are encourage to come for the barbeque and purchase their meal.
The game (Varsity only) will be at 5pm and will be a best 2 out of 3 contest.
CK is located at 3700 NW Anderson Hill Rd in Silverdale. The easiest route is through Tacoma, over "Galloping Gerty", north to Bremerton (WA-16 will turn into WA-3) and follow that through Bremerton and then north on WA-3 to Silverdale. The final part of the directions from Mapquest:
|9.||WA-16 W becomes WA-3 N.||8.6 mi|
|10.||Take the NEWBERRY HILL RD exit.|
|11.||Turn RIGHT onto NW NEWBERRY HILL RD.||0.2 mi|
|12.||NW NEWBERRY HILL RD becomes SILVERDALE WAY NW.||0.7 mi|
|13.||Turn LEFT onto NW ANDERSON HILL RD.||0.3 mi|
|14.||3700 NW ANDERSON HILL RD is on the RIGHT.|
If you make it to the Kitsap Mall area, you went too far.

There is no rest for the Falcons who head over to Silverdale for a 6:15 match against Central Kitsap. JV plays at 5pm.
Varsity has shown a lot of progress but no victories yet. Come cheer on Kentlake to the first Varsity victory of the year.

We start on Monday with the home match against rival Kentwood. We still need several people to help with that.
On Wednesday we have the match with Mount Ranier, a new school to the SPSL North and the first League match of the year. We still need several people to help with that.
On Thursday we travel to Central Kitsap in Silverdale. That match starts early with JV at 5pm and Varsity at 6:15pm. Note that the Cardinal team is not playing. It is at least a 90 minute ride to Silverdale, so the bus will leave shortly after school (coaches will have a definite time next week). It would be great to see lots of parents there. Let me know if you want to carpool.
On Friday we host the team from our Sister City in Sunnfjord, Norway. The best 2 out of 3 match will be at 5pm with a joint dinner at 3:45. We will host a barbeque for the two teams and hamburgers and grilled chicken will be available for purchase for non-players at the concession stand that evening. JV and Cardinal are not playing but are encouraged to attend this special match.
On Saturday we host the Kent Classic jointly with Kentwood. Varsity will start play at 8am at Kentlake. Where they play in the late morning/afternoon will depend on how they play against Issaquah and Rogers in the first morning pool. The upper bracket will be at Kentlake and the lower bracket at Kentwood. Check Twitter (www.twitter.com/Kentlakevb) for updates and www.kentclassic.com for more information.
Kentlake returns home on Monday against Kentwood. JV/Cardinal at 6pm and Varsity follows about 7:15pm. We still need help with game functions.
Thursday, September 16, 2010
All players must ride the bus from Kentlake. They should be there before 4:45pm to catch the bus. They must return on the bus after the Varsity game.
Wednesday, September 15, 2010
The Kentlake Cardinal and JV teams both swept K-M.
Tuesday, September 14, 2010
The first match of the season is finally here. All teams play Kent-Meridian at Kentlake. Cardinal and JV will play at 6pm, followed by Varsity at about 7:15pm. We encourage all parents [aunts, uncles, next-door neighbors, etc] to come and cheer Kentlake to victory. The Cardinal team will play in the back gym and JV and Varsity will play in the main gym.
We still have need for several parents to help with tonight's matches. We need one Varsity lines person and lines and libero tracker for the Cardinal match.
If you can't make the game you can follow on Twitter at www.twitter.com/KentlakeVB. You can also get updates via email by texting "follow KentlakeVB" to 40404 (standard text messaging rates apply).

p.s. Be sure to wish Mr. Moore well this week. He is getting married this Friday. The date was chosen for sentimental reasons on his Finance's part, obviously not to fit in the volleyball schedule well!
Friday, September 10, 2010
Remember: If you help at a match, you get in free.
Thursday, September 9, 2010
JV and Cardinal team pictures will be taken right after school so they will be done before the match at 5pm. Hopefully Varsity pictures will be taken this weekend (weather permitting).

Cardinal Lines (*2)
Cardinal Libero Tracker
JV Concessions (1 of 2)
Varsity Lines (1 of 2)
Obviously, most of the jobs are very easy. Scorebook takes some work, but we can train you fairly easily. Lines seems intimidating but with a few "tricks" it is actually fairly easy, at least for the Caridinal and JV games. The speed of the game does pick up considerably for Varsity, so when doing Varsity lines it would be best to have some experience.

That may be a very long Senior Night in two years. ;)
Numbers for volleyball turnouts at all four Kent schools are reported to be down this year. While part of that may be cyclical, there is most likely a direct correlation with the implementation of the "Athletic Participation Fee" (aka "Pay-to-Play") this year.

With the ability to have multiple pages (like the new pages for each team that will have team specific stuff on them this year) and to have slideshows, there is no reason to have the seperate website. The website was always harder to maintain than the blog and was just used for items of a "permanent" nature like rosters and schedules. The seperate pages on the blog can now do that job and it is easier to have everything in one place.
We will continue to use Twitter (www.twitter.com/kentlakevb) for game results and items of an immediate nature (like schedule changes at the last minute). I would suggest joining the Twitter feed just for the schedule changes if nothing else.
You can now download the September and October calendars.
From Mr. Rick: "I will be done checking paperwork at 7:00am Monday for that morning. If all three pieces of necessary paperwork are not turned in by that time (KSD Registration Form, Physical Form, Emergency Card), those students will not be able to participate in your practice."
So, if you have not turned in your paperwork yet, you need to get it in by 7AM on Monday, or you will miss the first day of tryouts. Hopefully lots of people turned their paperwork in on Friday as only 12 players had turned their paperwork in by 6am on Friday.
Here are the links for the required paperwork:
- Go to www.brandteamstore.com
- Click at the bottom of the page on ‘Spirit Store’
- Spirit Code: 3VKENTVB (Code is case sensitive)
- Closing on Aug 27th

Links to the forms are available on the Tryouts page. Most people will turn in the forms during Falcon Day but you can drop them off in the Athletic Office if you cannot make Falcon Day. Unfortunately, I don't know the schedule for when someone will be in the Athletic Office but you can call and ask.
This year the Kent School District has instituted a Pay-For-Play policy. Everyone that makes a team will have to pay a $100/season Athletic Fee. This will be due after the teams are chosen and before the first contest. No one will be allowed to play without having first paid the fee. According to School District policy, using a player that has not paid the fee yet will result in forfeiture of the contest.

Thursday, July 8, 2010
This season we get to play an extra match above the normal WIAA limits as the club team from our Sister City in Norway is attending the Kent Classic and we can schedule an extra match against them. That game was a special treat for all players involved when we hosted them three or four years ago.
Wednesday, July 7, 2010
Also, Kentlake is not doing the Seattle University Tournament this weekend.
The Washington State Games is being held at Magnusson Park in Seattle this weekend. Spots are still open in this grass tournament (4s and 6s on Saturday, 2s on Sunday).

We realize that not everyone can attend every time, but we encourage players to participate as much as possible. If they do commit to playing on any given night then it is very important that they show up and play.
All players that can attend on the 23rd should tell Coach Behrens or Coach Foster by the 22nd.
More details will follow as we get closer to the Tournament.

Kentlake will be sending two teams to the tournament/team camp at Central Washington University the week after school is out, June 21 & 22. Coach Behrens needs to know which players are able to attend. Please let her know at or before Thursday’s practice if you will be available for those two days.
- We will be staying at Holiday Inn Express the night of the 21st. We are in the process of finalizing rooms for Monday night. The cost per player for the hotel is $27—hotel provides continental breakfast.
- Parents, please let Coach Behrens know if you plan on attending the tournament AND if you are available to drive girls over—if that is the case, we have rooms reserved for chaperones. Please let Coach Behrens know if you would like to chaperone.

The physicians at Valley Medical Center do this as a community service. So you are getting a "real doc".
There will another session in August at Kentlake, but don't put it off until then. Please go ahead and get the physical done now so you don't have to worry about it later.

The Kent School District will have free sports physicals for anyone interested. You can attend either session:
- Saturday, June 5th - 8:00am to Noon at Kent-Meridian HS
- Saturday, August 14th - 8:00am to Noon at Kentlake HS
Sunday, May 16, 2010
- Selected players have been invited to attend the University of Washington Team Camp at the end of July. This is an excellent experience.
- Two teams will participate in Summer League at Kentwood. Coach Behrens will be selecting the teams based on June practices.
- Two teams (not necessarily the same two as above) will be playing at the Central Washington University tournament on June 21st and 22nd. This is the Monday and Tuesday following the end of school the previous Friday. Players will stay in the CWU dorms.
Each camp is $60 for the three days. You can download the camp brochure from the website.
Practice that week is from 2:30 to 4:30 and the middle schools don't get out until after 3pm, so we fully understand that you will be late. This is unavoidable and no 8th graders should leave school early to attend practice.
