Due to COVID-19 travel and safety protocols, PrepVolleyball will be using BallerTV to supplement in-person coverage of many events this season. BallerTV is on a mission to connect the youth volleyball community through the power of live-streaming. With over 150 volleyball partners, BallerTV is streaming hundreds of matches on any given weekend.
The Northern Lights Qualifier (NLQ) for the 17s and 18s age divisions took place last weekend, this year in Omaha, Nebraska, and not Minnesota. Two local teams for Premier Nebraska VBC, were in the final of the 17 and 18 Open finals and earned bids in their respective divisions. No. 14 MAVS KC 18-1 won the 18 Open field with Premier Nebraska 18 Gold finishing as the runner-up. FC Elite 18 Elite tried to earn a bid for the second time in just as many weekends and this time, it completed the task by finishing third.
In the 17 Open division, No. 8 Premier Nebraska 17 Gold
took home first prize after coming out of its pool in a three-way tie to earn a
spot in the final match. Premier Nebraska defeated Adversity 17 Adidas
and Drive Nation 17 Red finished third; all three earned one of the
first 17s bids of the season.
“The team played phenomenal all weekend,” said MAVS KC
18-1 coach Beau Barnthson. “Minus a
few hiccups, they just kept finding ways to win.”
