The LAVA 12U team competed in a Division II tournament in Greenville, NC. The 12U girls swept thru pool play without dropping a set, going into the championship round as the number one seed.
The LAVA 13 Purple team competed in Division III in Greensboro at the Sportsplex, and they too swept pool play without dropping a set, and entered the championship round as the number one seed.
Both teams continued with a hot hand, sweeping through the semi-finals, with 12U defeating NC KAT volleyball club out of Apex and the the 13 Purple defeating Stanley County Extreme Volleyball club, heading into the championship match untouched
The championship match for LAVA 12 was a hard fought match against the Sandhills Club out of Fayetteville. In a back and forth battle, LAVA 12U swept Sandhills in two straight sets.
LAVA 13 Purple faced NC Dominators Volleyball club. The LAVA ladies dominated the Storm to win the gold medals for the tournament.
Coach Brittany Ter Mere praised her team for consistent play all day. “
Hard work pays off and our girls have sure put in the work,” she said.
Coach Dan Heinz for the 12U was also very pleased with his team.
“It is exciting to see these girls compete against clubs from much larger cities and win,” he said. “We are a relatively small organization compared to most clubs, but we are fortunate to have girls who love the game and are working hard to take the skills to the next level.”
