Tournament Cancelled

Day One

Playing in the 3/5 format Team Z got off to a fast start winning in three over Circle City 16-2 (12,11,20). CC 16-2 handed TZ a loss in the very first match of the JO season at a Central Zone event. A bit later that day TZ took on it's first California opponent defeating Delta Valley 16 Blue 29-27, 25-13, 25-12.

Day Two

The second day began fast again with a 3-0 win over Front Range from Denver CO. (13, 21, 20) TZ's next opponent would be Austin Jrs. Navy. Austin featured a strong block and heavy hitting from antennae to antennae. While the match scores were close (26-28, 23-25, 25-21, 20-25) Team Z never did establish a comfortable pace as Austin avenged an earlier defeat in the Mid East Qualifier.

Day Three

Day three would be all about responding to the Austin loss. The morning started off with a 3-1 win over another nationally elite club in Tampa Bay Jrs. 25-17, 25-22, 23-25, 25-23. The last pool play had significant implications. A loss would mean a 3-way tie in the pool. A win would guarantee continuation in the gold bracket. It was a five game thriller against Copa Del Caribe Caribenas from Puerto Rico. Team Z prevailed 25-18, 25-18, 22-25, 26-28, 15-10. The tournament format required an extra match for 2nd and 3rd place pool finishers on day three. Team Z was cross pooled with the vaunted Vision VBC from California. The Ohio girls prevailed in a 3-1 win 25-19, 25-12, 23-25, 25-17 to advance to the Gold Bracket.

Day Four

The last day of the tournament started with a foe/friend match that would determine advancement into the medal round. Munciana vs. Team Z over the past two season's has produced many memorable matches and a number of continuing friendships. Day four produced another gut wrenching contest. Team Z down 8-3 at the turn clawed their way back for a 16-14 win in game five. The Semi Finals were a rematch with Delta Valley Blue with TZ advancing to the finals 3-0. The Championship match was with another national power house in Milwaukee Sting. In front of a large crowd Team Z lived out their dreams in a 3-1 win to become the USAV 2002 16 and Under National Champions.

Team Z 16-1 team members included Julie Walroth (Oak Hills HS), Elaine Walroth (Oak Hills HS), Erin Kanetzke (Ursuline HS), Brandie Molnar (Springboro HS), Beth Gillming (Saint Ursula Academy), Beth Shelton (Saint Ursula Academy), Bryn Kehoe (Saint Ursula Academy), and Danielle Meyer (Mt. Notre Dame HS). Team Z is coached by Amy Kehoe and Rich Zeciski. Beth Shelton and Bryn Kehoe were All-Tournament Selections with Danielle Meyer selected as Tournament MVP.

Pool Play
This will be a 4 court tournament.  For pools of 4 teams, the
best
of 3 sets will win matches. Each non-deciding set will be won by
the team that first scores 25 points with a minimum 2-point
advantage (no scoring cap). If there is a deciding set, it will
be
won by the team that first scores 15 points with a minimum

*Officiating teams will have to provide a down official (R2), a
scorekeeper, a libero tracker, a flip-scorer, and 2 line judges. 
The R2 and Scorekeeper should report to the court official at the
coin toss. If they are not present by the beginning of the first
timed warm-up then one point will be given to their next
opponent,
and one point will continue to be given for every minute that
they
are late. The rest of the support crew (line judges, scoreboard
operator and libero tracker) must report to the court official no
later than the beginning of the second timed warm-up or a point
will be given to their next opponent. An additional point will be
given for every minute that the work crew is incomplete for their
officiating duties. If no additional matches are to be played in
that tournament, the tournament director shall file an incident
report with the OVR commissioner and a $50 fine shall be imposed.

Playoffs
All teams advance. All teams must be ranked within their pools
based on match
percentage first. For any ties, use the tie-breaking procedure
below. All first-place and
second-place teams to the Gold playoffs. All third-place teams to
the Silver playoffs. All
fourth-place teams to the Bronze playoffs. Playoff positions on
the tournament brackets
will be based on pool finish to avoid teams from the same pool
playing each other in the
first round.  First and second place in the Gold division will be
given awards.

There wil be a concession stand run by Edinbor Univ. food
service.
