--- Quote from: Ron Boerger on November 15, 2021, 08:07:07 am ---Finals seedings are up and there will be a CMS-TU rematch if both win their opening match.  #2 CMS (30-1, loss to Calvin) faces #7 Berry (28-2, losses to Birmingham-Southern and Emory) while #3 Trinity (34-2, losses to CMS and Tufts) plays #6 Calvin (30-3, losses to Augsberg and Hope (2x)). 

On the other side of the bracket, you have #1 Juniata (30-1, loss to Johns Hopkins in the second match of the season) vs #8 MIT (29-3, losses to Trinity(TX), Williams, Babson) and #4 UW-Eau Claire (losses to Wartburg, St. Norbert, Hope) vs #5 Tufts (21-5, IMO should be #7 or #8 instead of #5, losses to Wesleyan x 2, Springfield, Endicott, Williams).   Guess beating Trinity on the finale of their New England swing of four matches at four different schools in 30 hours (in a 19-17 fifth set) got them a bump. 

Did not see that season-long and undefeated for years #1 Johns Hopkins went down 3-1 to Tufts in their regional final, which should make for an interesting finals.

Narrator:  but it was not meant to be.

CMS upheld their part of the bargain with a 3-1 victory over Berry, but Trinity could not hold a 2-1 lead, as Calvin came from behind to win 25-20, 19-25, 18-25, 25-19, 15-10.  The Knights were led by an insane 29 kills by Heidi Westra.  Trinity graduates no fewer than seven players this season, almost all of which made significant contributions all season, including two first-team AVCA All-Americans, Avery Tuggle and Annie Rose Leggett, as well as AVCA AA honorable mention Sara Flynn, so face a tough rebuilding job on the front line next year.   

On the other side of the bracket, no upsets as Juniata will face UW-Eau Claire in the other semi-final.

Per ETBU site, the Tigers have a new coach: (link too long to post here)

(Word I read is that she left LeTourneau to take this position--even more spice for that in-ASC rivalry)
