On a perfect day for beach volleyball, two SMASH sand teams met in the 18U final of a USAV Regional beach qualifier event at Mulligan's Island in RI on Saturday, June 15.
A 2-1 victory gave SMASH 16s eXtreme teammates Maggie Xu and Allison Melnychuk the tourney win and a bid to 18U USAV Junior Beach Nationals.
With the 14U bid already in hand via walkover, SMASH 14s teammates Annaliese Edman and Ella Gizmunt took on the 18U field and reached the final.
