Molly Roloff and Faith Bible Volleyball team advances to State Championship game




Congratulations to Molly Roloff and the Faith Bible Falcons school volleyball team!!
They have advanced to the Championship game in the whole state of Oregon in their category.

The championship game is Saturday night. The team they're playing hasn't lost a set in the tournament yet. Molly's team also hadn't lost a set until the semi-final match up, when they pulled out a victory 3-2.

Congratulations Molly! Go Falcons!

A Roloff on a winning sports team?? Molly MUST be adopted! ;)

Greg said...

I notice while people usually are supportive and very nice when told about the team success Molly has in volleyball, her supporters don't talk about how Molly is the best volleyball player ever and will get a scholarship or will be a professional.

Just something for the Jeremy fans to think about. I'm sure if Jeremy ever made it to the finals of anything there would be lots of people ready to induct Jeremy into the Hall of Fame. Acutally didn't someone already say that Jeremy should be in the Faith Bible Hall of fame??

Ellen in District said...

We played in October. They are good. I wish them luck tomorrow.

One thing people might want to know, Amy and Jeremy are sometimes the line referees. I'm not saying that's why we lost, they are a better team, but at the time I didn't think it was right because I don't think they would be objective. But at state they must have real officials.

Dana said...

I don't understand why people can't offer a simply "good luck" to Molly's team without using it as an attempt to criticize Jeremy.

Ellen, if it wasn't unfair and didn't effect the game, why did you mention it? You mentioned it as an attempt to smear Jeremy's and Amy's character.

In high school games, family of the players are often line judges because there isn't a lot of people there. It's a rarely a problem. I think it's nice that Jeremy would give up his time to support his old school's volleyball team.

Ashley said...

Brandon, I thought the samething about a Roloff winning. But I don't know about Jacob. Didn't his soccer team win one summer when Mike was coaching

Brandon said...

Ashley, I don't know about this year, but that was a long time ago. I remember someone posted Jacob's team record the next year, they had only won one game or something like that. Then I think he probably dropped out of soccer until this year. They travel almost all the summers before this one.

rob said...

my little brother plays for life christian. they played and beat faiths soccer team. jacob didn't play. a kid on his team told my brother that jacob was their best player but wasn't playing because he was on athletic suspension because of his grades.

Go Molly! :)

Judy B said...

Does anyone know what Division 2A is or means? Is that a division only for Christian private schools?

It's a nice achievement for a team like Faith Bible to make it all the way to the finals in the entire state. I hope they win.

Matt hasn't posted about the championship yet, but he did earlier this week. It's nice to see Matt sound genuinely proud of Molly and her team. Matt loves all his kids but I've only ever seen the genuine pride that doesn't seem forced when Matt was talking about all of Molly's awards and honors and when he talks about Jeremy's skills with equipment and machines.

I'm not surprised about what Rob said about Jacob. I hoped he would take after Jeremy and Molly, but more and more it's looking like he's going to be more like Zach.

Brandon said...

Judy, I'll remind you that there were episodes about Amy and Mike discussing Jeremy being kicked off the soccer team because of his grades too.

Face it. It seems like the only Roloff that has good grades and plays sports is Molly. That's why I said she must be adopted :)

Anne said...

Good luck to Molly and the Faith Bible girls. It shows what them at a young age what they can accomplish with team work and faith in Jesus.

Timothy said...

High school sports can be fun when you win. Lots of good memories to be made.

As for Jake, what does anyone expect? It would be shocking if he did make school a priority. His parents allow him to hang out with 20 year olds non stop.

Jason said...

The Roloff kids at a glance:

Jeremy - A bigot, selfish to boot. Can't speak or do anything for himself. Needs Matt to do practically everything for him. No job and did bad in school.

Zach - hates life. Did bad in school.

Jacob - Spoiled, bratty, never happy. Reportedly following in brothers footsteps with school.

Molly - Great grades and on a winning volleyball team.

Anybody want to explain why the difference?

Jerome said...

Jason...

3 boys all with piss-poor motivation to do anything or excel and 1 girl with ambition and willingness to succeed.

i think that little Y chromosome is somehow degenerate and leading the boys down a path of failure...

A girl said...

Jason, I will explain the difference. It's because Molly is a girl. Girls care more.

"I don't understand why people can't offer a simply "good luck" to Molly's team without using it as an attempt to criticize Jeremy."

Perhaps because in the past whenever Molly's accomplishments are praised, the Jeremy fans quickly adomish everyone to remember how school isn't as important as being sporty therefore Jer-bear is still tops?

Remember when you did that Dana? When Molly was successful at school? Here are some quotes from *you*.

" Grades do not make a person. Having better grades does not make one kid a better person than the other. Girls statistically do better in school than boys. It doesn't mean anything ore than that. As Matt has said before Jeremy, being successful in life is about more than your grades in a classroom. "

"I am glad she did well and more glad that Matt is proud, but don't get carried away. Jeremy is the one that will go places in life. "

"Congratulate Molly for her awards, but don't get carried away."

Here's one from your buddy Craw:

"Dana, ITA. Molly is okay but her good girl routine wears thing.

Jeremy is the real deal."

Here's your buddy Sheri:

" Jeremy holds the family together, not Molly."

And here's Judy:

"Let us remember that Matt knows better than anyone that while good grades are something to be proud of it, they are not the sole indicator in determining where a person will end up in life."

So clearly a thread about how well Molly was doing in school turned into a "BUT ALWAYS REMEMBER JEREMY IS GOOD AT OTHER THINGS AND IS BETTER!"

(anyone questioning context can of course look for themselves - http://spiritswander.blogspot.com/2010/05/molly-roloff-cleans-up-at-faith-bible.html)

SO Dana - choke on it. Now Molly is good at school AND sports... You and the Jer-Fans made the point that school isn't important. Now Molly is excelling at sports. And you're complaining that people find that important... even tho you intentionally downplayed her school accomplishments in order to insist Jeremy is the best one despite his lackluster grades.

The reality is that Molly for whatever reason, seems to be the only Roloff with Matt's discipline and drive and therefore she's accomplishing more than Jeremy. Maybe if Jeremy spent more time working to improve himself and less time playing, he'd be as accomplished as his little sister.

Dana said...

"The reality is that Molly for whatever reason, seems to be the only Roloff with Matt's discipline and drive and therefore she's accomplishing more than Jeremy."

Rap, why do you think Matt repeatedly says Jeremy is most like him, not Molly.

Matt willingly admits learning in a classroom was not his cup of tea, just like Jeremy. Matt is a success in life. And Matt says Jeremy is most like himself. It's not hard to see. By the way, in personality, girls can be like their father and sons can be like their mother. Matt is successful. Matt says Jeremy is most like him, not Molly. That in no way means Matt doesn't love Molly or isn't proud of her, but it is what it is. Matt recognizes that Jeremy is his kid that is most like himself. And Matt is a success that will go down in history.

Dana said...

Jason, A Girl, Jerome... you're giving Molly a lot of credit for team success. I am happy for Molly that team is doing well at state.

You all have to stop acting like it makes Molly successful or somehow better than Jeremy because his school team was much weaker than Molly's school team.

Rap541 said...

Btw - I think Matt constantly prates about how Jeremy is most like him because Matt's a sexist ass who can't really face the fact that his not-son is the one with the most talent. Also, Jeremy likes what Matt likes, therefore Matt praises Jeremy more.

I don't think *Matt's opinion* is a significant factor in which of the kids is the most disciplined.

What Matt says is hardly the Sermon on the Mount, after all. Matt said in May that the show was going to be on the air for at least two more years. Matt said he had been interviewed about being cyberbullied. (as yet, no national media interviews of Matt Roloff on cyberbullying btw) so no, "Matt says" is not holy writ.

Emma said...

Congratulations to Faith Bible! That's really amazing they made it this far! :)

hannah said...

go lady falcons! i would watch it if i wasn't out of state!

Shadow said...

2A is simply a division based on the number of students a school has enrolled. In Oregon, there is no separation between private and public schools - they all compete together in sports. In Oregon, schools are classified 1-6:

6A: 1480 or more
5A: 870 to 1479
4A: 400 to 869
3A: 226 to 399
2A: 106 to 225
1A: 10 to 105

So for the state tournament, Faith Bible would be playing other 2A schools. Schools can and do play out of their classification during the season, but at tournament time, they only play within their division.

If you want, you can watch the championship match live online tonight:

Jocelynn said...

Shadow, thanks for the information. I also wondered what the "2A", "5A" stood for too.

So it's not quite a cinderella story because they are playing other schools that are the same size, but still a nice run.

Expressed said...

Shadow, thanks for the link! If I'm near a computer later I might turn it on to see....Jeremy might be there since it's the big game! :)

Ashley said...

Shadow, you should go and give us a report!

FB parent said...

Ellen, I'm not sure how it's done at your school, but I know the parents at Faith Bible are told they must volunteer to help with 7 games a season. If they can't make the 7 game requirement they need to write a check for $20 to hire someone to fill in for the missing parent volunteer. That's probably why you saw Jeremy there. They probably paid him $20 because a parent couldn't or wouldn't volunteer to be the line judge.

Shadow said...

Ashley, sorry to disappoint, but not gonna happen. Too much good football on tonight. Fortunately for Faith, they only have to travel about 15 minutes to the tournament site, so I'm sure they will have lots of friends and family there. Their opponent is from way out in eastern Oregon, and they had about a 5-hour drive.

Maybe someone at the game is also a Spirits poster and will give a report...

Judy B said...

If anyone else is wondering, I looked up the other team. They don't appear to be a Christian school. Go Faith!

Michelle said...

Shadow, thanks for the link!

Jerome said...

Dana...I was merely comparing the grades of Molly and overall ambition towards important things in life with those of her two brothers.

Their athletic abilities are not in question...both Molly and Jeremy I think are great athletes...but Molly has more dedication and motivation to succeed than does Jeremy.

It has nothing to do with their team or anything. I am fully aware that there is no "I" in team but sometimes if someone is that good at something...it brings the team together as a whole and gives them that extra push that they need.

Molly will succeed with her life with or without her families help simply because she wants to succeed.

Jeremy may succeed by stroke of luck...but I am willing to bet he will have a little help along the way...cough cough...matt...cough cough

Expressed said...

Thanks Shadow! Your link works great! Just finished the introductions.

If anyone else is watching, has anyone spotted the rest of the Roloffs? I haven't. I think they might be on the same side as the camera.

Expressed said...

FYI, the announcer said Molly Roloff is 5'9"

Jocelynn said...

Expressed, I think that's Jacob and his friend Levi, standing off to the side beside the Faith bench.

Expressed said...

Jocelynn, I can't tell if that's them for sure. You might be right. Jake might be in the black?

Haha. "Molly Roloff gets the Roll OFF the net"

How many points do they need to win a set? 21-12 for the other team.

Expressed said...

Weston Mcewen won the first set 25 -15 :( All the points were hard fought though! :)

Michelle said...

It's not looking good. Weston is the favorite. They went to the finals last year.

Expressed, the camera isn't clear, but that might be Jeremy, Dan and one of their other friends in the middle in the second row. I think that's Jeremy is wearing a light blue t-shirt and Dan is wearing red.

Expressed said...

Uh oh. Down 2 sets to 0.

Expressed said...

The announcer likes Molly. "Molly Roloff has been very steady for Faith Bible"

Michelle said...

Will Molly be a senior next year? I thought she has only been in high school for 2 years. It wasn't that long ago when they did the episode about Molly joining Jeremy and Zach at Faith.

Expressed said...

It's over. They lost 3-0.

Expressed said...

Aw, it went away from it. I saw Amy right at the end when Faith was getting their award. Amy practically went out on court to take a picture of Faith posing with their 2nd place trophy :)
