The 16s and 17s are in full swing at USAV Nationals, so this spotlight series will keep rolling. We’re looking up and down the leaderboard to give a shoutout to the teams looking for a triumphant finale in Las Vegas.

This feature looks at the Premier Nebraska 17 Black team currently competing in the 17 National division. I’ve got a chance to see this squad several times throughout the year, so I’m excited to write a "conclusion" to their exciting club season. 17 Black has several players that I look forward to seeing in high school ball this fall, too.

So, let’s recap the team’s first two days of competition and get a look at some players who help the team prosper.


Nationals Journey

The first thing to mention here is that 17 Black was placed in a very competitive pool. This group has no shortage of talented teams that could be title contenders by the end of the tournament.

Premier kicked off Nationals with a strong sweep over Union. After encountering setbacks in the following two matches against OJVA and FH Muscle, 17 Black entered Friday’s slate looking for a rebound.
