After a full year hiatus, Northern California power league returned and it was great to have our local volleyball community back together again competing at the Power League Qualifier (PLQ) at the Grounds in Roseville over the past two weekends. Here is a quick run down on how each of the teams fared during the PLQ:
Bay to Bay 18-1: The 18-1's entered the tournament with the #1 overall seed in Northern California and held their seed through the weekend by going 7-0. The 18's also helped lead the charge on weekend 1 of getting teams together to go cheer on other Bay to Bay teams, including a few rushed courts 😉
Bay to Bay 18-Premier: The 18-Premier team came in seeded 14th but suffered 2 match losses in their opening pool. They won their next four matches in a row to finish 5-2 and will start Power League 1 in the fourth division.
Bay to Bay 17-1: Coach Alex and Ryan's team entered the tournament as the #4 overall seed coming off of their Bronze medal finish at Junior Nationals this past season. The boys finished 7-0 and only dropped two sets throughout the weekend (once to Aspire 18's and once to Bay to Bay 17-Club).
Bay to Bay 17-Premier: Coach Josh and John's team came into the weekend with the #11 seed in the 18's division but they finished as the #5 overall after an impressive 7-1 finish.

Bay to Bay 13-Premier: Coach Jon and Brendan's squad lost all of their matches during the Power League Qualifier but you never would have known by the looks on their faces.

As well, the 13-Premier group did a fantastic job of going and watching the older kids playing as they were a constant fixture on the 18-1's sideline.
Bay to Bay 12-1: Coach Mason and Freddy's team went 2-2 during the Power League Qualifier. This being the first tournament of most of these young men's careers, it was awesome to see so much passion and energy while they played. No moment of the weekend was better than coach Mason's post tournament speech to his 12's team, take a look at this 40 second video if you would like your heart warmed.
