The Ohio Valley Region hosted the U18 nationals qualifying tournament last weekend with three divisions competing for bids. NOVA Juniors 18 Gold had a terrific outing finishing at 8-0 on the weekend to claim the title and earn the bid in the 18 American division. Some of this team's top athletes include:

Elizabeth Bauer - 6'1 | OH
Bauer has length as a pin attacker which helps her create a high contact point. She was a team leader for her Uniontown squad this past high school season as she averaged over two kills per set while hitting at .234. Defensively, she also made her long presence felt as she added 2.7 blocks per match. 

Michaella Cloonan - 6'1 | MH/RS
Cloonan brings good athleticism and physicality with her arm to the court. She has good movement and makes adjustments well in transition to be on time and with good spacing around her setter. Her high elbow is complimented with good speed that can create pace on the ball. She averaged 2.6 kills per set and 2.0 blocks per match for Archbishop Hoban in 2020. She is committed to play at Edinboro.

Ashton Knappenberger - 5'8 | OH/DS
