What a run. All club national championships are now complete!

We’ve got a lot of analysis, breakdowns, and top players to discuss across the site over the next several days. It helps that Nationals presented us with some elite talent and riveting competition across all divisions and age groups. There’s truly no limit to the angles we could look at in the wake of these championship tournaments.

So, while club season may be over, we’re going full steam ahead to cover the players who are looking to take over the prep scene for months and years to come. Let’s get it started with a team who had a great final placing at GJNC: Premier Nebraska 16 Black!

 

Nationals Journey

Almost all of 16 Black’s results in the opening round of pools have one thing in common: razor-thin margins.

It was truly one thriller after another for this team to open up USAV play. Premier’s journey began Friday afternoon with a matchup against NPJ Seattle. Both teams traded blows in the first two sets before 16 Black pulled out a 15-13 win in the tiebreaker. 16 Black split the opening-day matches after falling to HJV in another 15-13 third set.
