It was Day 3 of the So Cal Qualifier at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Tstreet 16 Curtis and Encore 16 Navy were in the same gold pool together. They were first up, squaring off in the Saturday evening match that always sets the tone for the third and final day.
Both teams were already qualified for Open, so it ultimately didn’t matter what happened. Tstreet went on to clip Encore in three games, 25-19, 15-25, 19-17, on the way to a fourth-place finish, with Encore taking fifth.
The teams never met the rest of the season, including during the four days of 16 Open at Junior Nationals in New Orleans. While they briefly shared the same stage at So Cal, there were few warning signs they would be sharing the same stage once more in NOLA.
The pair ended as the 16 Open bronze medalists after falling in their respective semifinal matches.
