Update: Boys 18s USAV Bid Qualifications

With another boys qualifier in the books, here is an update on those who have already punched their tickets and qualified for the 1Boys 8s Open Division for the USAV Boys Junior National Championships in Las Vegas. Something interesting to note: There seems to have been a paradigm shift in AAU vs. USAV Nationals competition and attendance, which is why you’ll see more teams declining bids for USAV Boys Nationals. We’ll have more on this in the coming weeks. 

Far Western No Dinx Boys Bid Tournament

Bay to Bay 18-1
PRVA U18

With just two bids up for grabs in the six-team competition, Bay to Bay 18-1 punched its ticket, winning gold in the process when they defeated MVVC 18 Red in the finals. MVVC declined a bid to nationals, which then passed the bid onto third place PRVA U18, who finished third. Bay To Bay went wire to wire without dropping any of the team’s six matches and lost one lone set in the finals against MVVC. PRVA won three of five matches, which was enough to take home a bid to Nationals, along with the third-place finish.
