Another season of #LohudVolleyball has come and gone (for the most part), now that the Section 1 volleyball tournament is over. When the dust settled, there were five teams left standing — Suffern, John Jay, Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry and Haldane — ironically enough, the same teams I called all the way back on June 3.
Because I can, here are my VERY early section champion predictions: AA: Suffern, A: JJCR, B: Ardsley, C: Dobbs Ferry, D: Haldane.

On top of that, my #Zacketology picks for this year’s tournament (which, ironically had Yorktown winning in Class A) were 52-4 overall, one game above my goal of 51-5. I correctly predicted four of the five champions, nine of the 10 finalists and a perfect 20-for-20 in semifinalists.
For a look back at everything from this year’s section tournament, I’ve compiled every game story, nightly recap post and photo gallery from the postseason and have posted links to each of them below for your convenience:
