Last year Central Iowa Select 15M made their way up from the Challenge Pools to eventually finish second to Nebraska Premier in the 15 Elite Division.  Got a game, got a chance. At Triple Crown, there are four power pools with 32 teams total that will automatically get a game to advance to the championship side of the bracket.  Teams in the challenge pool must earn their way to a challenge match and defeat a power pool team to have a chance to compete for the prize. What teams have the potential to make some waves that could be a major threat to the power pools teams with hopes of advancing to the championship bracket? 

Illini Elite 18 Cardinal (IL) 

Just outside of the power pools is Illini Elite out of Bloomington, Illinois.  This squad has plenty of high level athletes, with one being middle blocker in Allie Trame who is committed to Alabama.  Three other Division 1 commits round out the roster in Mackenzie Houser (Southern Illinois), Alayna Crabtree (Boston College), and Corinna Jones (VCU).  This group has always been a force in a really strong area for volleyball.
