In an all-SMASH final in 18 Gold at Hampton Beach in New Hampshire, U17 Christina Butera & U16 Makayla Marucci defeated SMASH 17s teammates Pamela Chiakpo & Kaleigh Fitzgerald.
Defense wins championships? The two liberos from 17s Black Ice and 16s eXtreme certainly made a strong case.
Mak & Tina didn't drop a set all day under azure skies at the NERVA Regional Beach Qualifier event put on by North East Beach Volleyball.
Pam & Kaleigh will head next to Indianapolis for USAV Indoor Nationals, where SMASH 17s will compete in 17 USA with a bid they earned at Colorado Crossroads.
Congratulations to these awesome SMASH Volleyball Club sand pairs for a great day at the beach!
Summertime and the Living is Easy
SMASH 15s teammates Corinne Herr & Coco Salem took an undefeated record into their final match of the day and placed 2nd in 16 Gold!
They Can't Take That Away From Me
