Two Minnesota teams successfully advanced out of Round 2 in Omaha to keep their bid hopes alive at the U18 Northern Lights Qualifier. In the 18 Open division, MN Select 18-1 earned a second place finish in their Round 2 pool following a tie-breaking single set match versus KC Power 18-1. Pool 1 in Round 2 was a battle as three of the teams finished with 2-1 records thus creating the tie breaker scenario. In their head-to-head matchup, KC Power beat MN Select in the pool. However, redemption was served as MN Select took the single set extra match with a commanding 25-16 win. MN Select 18-1 is now among four teams in the Round 3 Gold pool that will compete for bids to the 18 Open GJNC event later this season. The other three teams they will face are COAST 18-1, Milwaukee Sting 18 Gold, and A4 Volley 18 Purple.

In the 18 American division, Northern Lights 18-Black finished second in their Round 2 pool securing their place among the remaining eight teams that will compete in the Gold playoff bracket. With a 2-1 Round 2 record, NL 18-Black defeated Premier Nebraska 18 Black and Team KC VBC 18-1
