The USA Volleyball Girls Junior National Championship took place at the Las Vegas Convention Center from June 26-July 5.  In order to play at this prestigious tournament in one of the four main divisions, a club team must win their bid by placing at a USAV national qualifier. 


184 teams have earned their right to represent their club and compete to be one of the best teams in the nation in four different 16’s divisions.  The state of Texas was heavily represented in the 16’s American Division with 12 teams making the trip to Nevada out of the 64 teams in the tournament.

The team led by head coach Haley Jacob (who used to play for AVA during her club career) has had a fantastic season as they were able to Qualify for Junior Nationals in the American Division.  During the regular season they had 28 wins and only 13 losses against some stellar competition. They won were able to play extremely well and finish in the top five at Lone Star Regionals to earn their bid to Nationals.  I was super excited to cover them at nationals since I spent one season
