Two MVSA Teams Medal in CHRVA Gold Regionals
MVSA Dynamite - 14s Club Regional Champions
(1st Place Gold Division)
MVSA Dynamite started the day as the #1 seed in the tournament. They played strong in the 1st match defeating Premier Pulse (25-15, 25-18). Match 2 was a bit of a challenge as the #8 seed Metro 14 North split with Dynamite (23-25, 25-17). In match 3 Dynamite bounced back and defeated Shenandoah Surge (25-18, 25-10) to secure a spot in the Gold A playoffs. In the semifinals Dynamite defeated the #7 seed in the tournament, Waco Cyclones, in straight sets (25-22, 25-17). In Finals play, Dynamite was again to play Metro 14 North. After splitting sets 1 and 2, Dynamite came from a 10-13 deficit in the deciding set to defeat Metro 14 North (25-16, 21-25, 15-13). Congratulations Dynamite!
MVSA Sparks - 17s Club Regional Finalists
(2nd Place Gold Division)
MVSA Sparks entered Regionals as the #4 seed. After a rough start with NOVA Phoenix (split 1 win each), the Sparks went on to closely win the next two sets against Metro 17 North and two close sets against their developing rival DYS Thunder (# 1 seed). The competition was extreme on this net, but the Sparks were able to progress to the Gold A Bracket. Here they met their toughest competition yet and defeated Potomac Elite in 3 sets with the final set ending in the score of 17-15. The Sparks fought hard in the finals but was unable to hold off the #2 seed ECEVBC Tsunami and lost in 2 sets resulting in a 2nd place overall finish. Great Job Sparks!
