After all the excitement that was just delivered by the 15s and 17s in Orlando, there’s still plenty more drama that the 16s can deliver to finish out AAU Nationals.

Many of the same Nebraska clubs we covered in the other age groups are represented once again in the 16s field. This talented class kicked off the opening matches of pool play on Saturday, and it all leads up to bracket play to decide a champion on Tuesday.

Those opening matches are in the books now, and I’ve got some recaps from some of the teams representing the Cornhusker State.

 

Nebraska Juniors 16 Black

NE Jrs 16 Black was part of a barnburner of a group to kick off group competition in 16 Open. This Nebraska Juniors team posted a 2-1 record, second only to a talented Top Select squad that did not drop a set on Tuesday. Wins over Munciana Indy and VA Elite propelled 16 Black to the upper half of the four-team group.

16 Black has the talent to lift them to these solid finishes. Brinly Christensen Brinly Christensen 5'10" | OH Lincoln Southwest | 2023 State NE had plenty of good reps on the left pin Tuesday, and Adison Markowski Adison Markowski 5'7" | S Lincoln Pius X | 2023 State NE showed her
