Tournament Cancelled

To say that the Dayton Jrs. volleyball club attended the National Championship at Salt Lake City, Utah is a understatement. They did not only attend, but they did very well. The club was represented in the 17s (Open), 16s, and 13s age divisions.

The 17s – Blue Angels, coached by Rob Beam, went through their pool with a record of 5-1 thanks to a constant attack mentality. They achieved wins over strong clubs such as Circle City, 2nd City and Nike N'west. Their only loss came from Delta Valley after the Blue Angels had secured first place in the pool and at least a top eight finish in the tournament. They proceeded to defeat one of the favorite teams, Nevada Jrs., in the quarter finals and lost in the semis to the 2002 National Champions Muncie Chipmunks. Their record for the tourney was 6-2. Ali Hausfeld (setter) and Carrie DeMange (middle hitter) were selected to the All-Tournament Team.

The 16s – Chill, coached by Yoon Ha, came out firing on all cylinders, going undefeated in the first two pools they played with records of 3-0 each. Their quick attack and great floor defense provided them with wins over tournament runner-up NORCAL and other notables such as Indy Jrs. and The Beach. In the third round they came up short, finishing third and pushing them to the Silver Division. Overall they finished with a record of 8-3 and an 11th-place finish in the Championship.

The 13s – Blue Sparkles, coached by Paula Boch, did not do that well in the first day of play, ending up with a record of 0-3. On the second day they did very well with a record of 3-1, finishing tied with two other teams for first. Due to the tiebreakers they ended up third in the pool. On the third day of play they went 2-0 with two impressive wins. After winning their first match in tournament play to Ft. Smith Jrs., they ended up losing in three in their final match of the season to the Mavericks 13-1. Their record for the Championship was 6-5.

Members for the 17s Blue Angels were Jess Strader, Sarah Treadway, Ali Hausfeld, Carrie DeMange, Jenna Miller, Sarah Douglas, Abby Showers, Jen Moore and Tara Lakes. Members for the 16s Chill were Chelsea Noble, Jackie Strader, Stephanie Ross, Molly Spencer, Lizaiha Garcia, Amber Allen, Beth Oldiges, Lindsey Woeste and Betsy Hiltibran. Members for the 13s Sparklers were Jessica Raffa, Emily Borchers, Katie Laravie, Sarah Fisher, Katie Hoendorf, Stefanie Bomberger, Lauren Woeste, Michelle Nicol, Kacie Hausfeld, and Megan Martin.

It was a great season for all teams and they expect to get there again next year!

Hosting Spikefest is a tradition that we look forward to every year. However, we believe it is in the best interest of the participants, coaches, and their families that we follow the recommendations set by government and health officials.
