Three SMASH Girls teams launched the summer season with a trip to AAU Nationals in Orlando, FL.
SMASH 14s played up a year in 15 Aspire, SMASH 15s rallied for a strong finish in 15 Club, and SMASH 17s didn't drop a set until Day 4, rolling to a 9th place finish in the Championship Division of 17 Club.
Congrats, players and coaches, on a great club season!
Despite washout weather, Memorial Day weekend saw four SMASH Girls teams in action for "Fun @ The Sun", a New England AAU Super Regional event in Connecticut.
SMASH 17s, 16s, and 15s each won their Open age division, and SMASH 14s placed 3rd in 14 Open!
The four teams compiled a 60-8 set record over three days of play, and will travel to Orlando later in June for AAU Nationals.
For many of us in the New England volleyball community, the 2020 Boston Volleyball Festival was one of the very last events to occur before life as we knew it shut down. 63 weeks later, the BVF came roaring back, with 76 clubs from 11 states sending 431 teams to compete on 72 courts for 3 days! Many thanks to JVC Tournaments, NERVA, BCEC, parent volunteers, coaches, and athletes for a safe and exciting weekend of juniors volleyball, one that will hopefully portend a return to a more familiar lifestyle.
SMASH Volleyball Club had 11 teams in action this weekend. Some of the many highlights include:
SMASH 16s were 16 Open Gold champions, SMASH 17s placed 3rd in 17 Open Gold, SMASH 12s placed 3rd in 12 Gold, SMASH 18s placed 5th in 18 Open Gold, and SMASH 14s Fire placed 1st in 14 USA Silver!
Congrats to all our athletes and coaches for your hard work and dedication during this LONG indoor season, and good luck in your next adventures, be it Nationals, beach, or camps!
