The Northeast Qualifier took place this past weekend with competition in several divisions. NKYVC was a huge winner with a trio of open-level bids earned at U15, U16, and U17. The club had already earned an open qualification at U13. To date, the club has earned a total of 11 bids to GJNC events later this season. Here are standouts from this past weekend.

17-1 Tsunami

With a 6-3 record overall, 17 Tsunami captured third-place to earn their open bid to the GJNC event in Vegas later this summer. Their tournament was not without some drama though as they finished tied on day two with a 1-2 record but claimed the second position based upon set percentage. Then, in their gold pool play on the final day, it was their first match versus Metro that helped catapult them as they claimed the three-set win with a 16-14 third-set victory. Additionally, the team’s lone setter, Cora Taylor (committed to Butler) played the majority of the tournament with an injured and heavily taped thumb and managed to keep their offense rolling while also applying a lot of pressure from the service line.
