Amazing weekend of volleyball for the 17-Dana team at the Power League Regional Qualifier in Sacramento. The girls started at Seed 5 and finished at Seed1. An unfortunate loss in their second pool of play dropped them to Seed 17, but this loss actually ended up being a blessing because it placed them in the final pool with Seeds 1, 15, & 17, thus allowing them to challenge NorCal 17-1 Black for the #1 spot! Thankfully ours girls rose to the occasion and brought some pretty great defense to the court. Our blocking was the best we've seen all season and our back row came up with some amazing digs. Our offense was on point and some tough and well placed serving helped seal the victory. We coaches are super proud of the heart, tenacity, and elevation our girls brought to the floor. Great job, ladies! WE LOVE YOU!!!
16-Todd went 4 and 2 at the Regional Qualifier this past weekend in Clovis, however lost the key match in 3 sets to City Beach 16 Black on day 1. The team climbed back to 56th with a 3 and 1 performance on day 2 winning the 2nd pool handily. Standouts for the tournament were Breanna Davis with 48 digs and 52 assists, Malia DeCelle with 28 kills, 11 aces and 37 digs, and Zoe Hopkins with 12 Blocks, 21 Kills and a .426 hitting percentage. Next up is the Showcase in Las Vegas!
14-Jason had an amazing Cal Kickoff going undefeated in pool play on day 1 and going 5-1 on day 2, finishing 2nd out of 84 teams in the 14 club division. Nicole Risch contributed 48 aces and 71 assists while E’mon Irving, Lexi Bercutt, and Ella Campisi put up double digit kills with 25, 18, and 15. And, Bella Montez protecting the backrow with 42 digs. The team fought hard until the very end with a very exciting and closely matched championship.
The 17s experienced some tough competition in the 18 Open Division at Cal Kickoff. They played some great ball, adjusted on the fly, struggled in some areas, but ultimately learned from their mistakes. They are fired up for Power League Qualifier next month. Way to move up 17s!!
