This week, the eyes of the volleyball world were all focused on one city in the mid west…Kansas City! Four of the nations top volleyball programs met there to decide who would take home this years national title. Texas and Penn State… Cal and USC were all apart of this years final four, which saw Penn State win it’s fourth National title. This past weeks event culminated this years college volleyball season. We and would like to extend our congratulations to Penn State for winning yet another National Championship. We would like to also congratulate Cal, Texas and USC for reaching this years final four as they conclude three incredible journeys for their athletes and schools.
As the past week’s event took place, it had a direct reflection on the results of this weeks fan poll. Kansas City fans have been for the last few weeks, sitting at, or right on the bubble of the top ten. Of the fans acquired this week, Kansas City fans made up more the one third of those new fans. Dramatically, Kansas City fans grew in it’s fans count and positioning. Those fans now sit in eighth place.
There were minor changes elsewhere, but not among the top four groups. Chicago fans still sit in first while Dallas fans sit in second. Austin fans are still holding on to the number three spot and New York fans have a solid grip on fourth. The changes begin with Los Angeles fans growing just enough to inch past Atlanta who is now tied for sixth place with Houston’s fans. As mentioned earlier Kansas City fans are in eighth place as they bumped Seattle and San Antonio fans down one spot each. That completes this week’s results for our top ten.
Congratulations once again to this year’s National Champion Penn State…and also to every college volleyball program across this great country. You all give those of us who love this game something to cheer about.
Just a reminder to our returning fans and to the fans who are just joining us, please remember to invite other volleyball fans to become our fans on facebook.. Our goal is to reach 25,000 fans before the year is over. Although the numbers have been a little lower these last couple of weeks, we still believe we can reach this goal… together, with your help.
Thanks to all of our fans, we really appreciate you and what you have helped us accomplish as it relates to our fan growth. Happy Holidays to everyone and thanks for joining the revolution!
