I know we're not even 24 hours removed from an incredible - and heartbreaking - championship match, but it's never too soon to look to the future... right? Foecke and Maloney will be tough to replace for sure, especially as leaders, but I think that Stivrins may end up as an all-time great herself. Having a freshman as a setter this year bodes well for the future, as that may be the most important position on the court. Lexi Sun is getting things figured out, and I hope that Sweet can find a little more consistency. This is a team that was loaded with young talent. You never assume an appearance in the finals, but there's no reason to expect a big drop off next season. Women's college volleyball has seriously become my 2nd favorite sport to watch.
