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!
