Good morning everyone. The day we have all been waiting for is finally upon us — the official Section 1 volleyball tournament seeds will be released at approximately 2 p.m. today, according to Section 1 coordinator Diane Swertfager. As soon as I have the seeds, I will tweet them out, then type up the full schedule for the blog and Thursday’s paper.
Once all of the mandatory work is taken care of on my end, I will type up my official Zacketology predictions for this year’s tournament. After a miserable showing last year, I’m really anxious to redeem myself this season. I know that it’s a short turnaround, with play-in matches on Thursday and first-round matches on Friday, but I’d love for you all to join in the fun and make your own predictions.
I will be having a live chat tonight (Wednesday) at 7:30 p.m. to discuss anything and everything volleyball, although I’m sure most of the questions will be geared towards the section tournament. My apologies to anyone who was here last night for the chat; I meant to type Wednesday, instead of “today” on Tuesday.
Participating in the chat is incredibly easy — simply go to the blog post (it will say “Mike Zacchio’s Lohud Volleyball Chat”) and type your question into the designated space. It will ask you for a name, but you can post anonymously or with an alias. Our chat two weeks ago was pretty successful (click here to read it); I just ask that fans please use an alias — any fake name — so that I can tell apart who is asking questions. I want to get to everyone, but if questions are flooding in and all are posted by “Guest,” I don’t know whom is whom.
If you have any questions throughout the day, feel free to hit me up on Twitter (@Zacchio_LoHud) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Until then, check back later for the seeds. Today should be exciting for everyone. See you later!
