SCVA Boys’ Classic
We entered seven (7) teams in the SCVA Boys’ Classic this summer. As our ninth season comes to a close, we have lots to celebrate.
First, an enormous thank you to all the wonderful families that make up our VVC family. The 18Black team might represent this best. Every athlete had his family present this weekend, cheering and celebrating a wonderful tournament. And, thank you to our coaches. It is enormously gratifying to have our alumni return and pass along their knowledge to younger generations of VVC athletes.
14Navy played in only their second tournament as a team and earned a seeding of 69th overall. The boys battled to earn tough wins against more experienced teams finishing the weekend with a .500 percentage in sets played (8-8) and just under in matches (3-4). 14Navy finished 54th improving fifteen spots from their original seed. Great job boys! Great job Coach Max!
We have three 16’s teams and we were thrilled with the improvement of each. There were 99-teams entered in the 16’s division this year.
16Gold began the tournament seeded 88th and improved to finish 79th. Coach Quinn worked hard to have his group end the tournament on a positive note. 16White had a spectacular day one reaching the top half of the tournament by upsetting the second seed in their round one pool. Moving into the top half was a great success and the reward was playing a tougher caliber of opponent on Saturday and Sunday. 16White began seeded 57th and finished the tournament 50th overall. Congratulations to Coach Varela and the boys! 16Royal battled opponents and a team sick bug this past weekend. The team began seeded 44th overall and improved to finish 31st with a .500 record in matches. We hope everyone gets healthy quickly so we can improve this week prior to BJNC in Dallas.
17Red started in a tough 5-team pool on day one. They faced the overall #10 and #11 teams in their first pool. A tough three set loss to the pool’s top seed was one of only three losses for the weekend. 17Red began the weekend seeded 30th and ended 19th overall in the final standings. Congratulations to Coaches Augustin, Maxwell and the boys! 17Red won Flight 2.
18White continues to overcome injuries, distractions and tough opponents to play gritty volleyball on tournament weekends. 18White began the weekend seeded 43rd overall and finished 37th in the final standings. 18White won Flight 3. Congratulations to Coach Shea and the boys! 18Black had an awesome weekend knocking off the overall #15 team before falling to two teams that would both finish inside the top ten. Those two losses were the only two on the weekend for 18Black. The team finished 10-2 (21-5) winning Flight 1. Great contributions from Coach Nelson and the entire roster!
