Nevada Union volleyball coach Marco Salcedo was unusually calm. For a man preoccupied with the performance of his team over the last month, he finally seemed to be resigned to the fact that the Miners may be as ready as they ever will be. He did not speak of apprehension. Sleepless nights were not a part of this dialogue. The long text messages of weeks back had been replaced by short answers as he rolled back toward Nevada County after yet another weekend of volleyball in Reno.
