Volleypalooza Day 2: Eight Remain in the Hunt for Gold

Lovejoy’s Cecily Branschreiber blasts one down the line to keep her team alive.

The second day of Volleypalooza, in Texas, put the 32 teams
remaining in Gold in a pressure situation. Each team was capable of upsetting
the other three teams in the pool, but to advance to the Gold bracket on the final
day, a team would have to win the pool outright. Competition on Friday morning began
with 32 teams, and by the end of it, just eight teams remained in contention
for first-place.

On Thursday, the 64 teams competed across seven playing
sites and we were able to see just two. Friday wasn’t exactly drawn out for my
benefit and the eight pools were spread across six facilities. I was able to
see three of them. Luckily for me, all the Gold teams will play at Rouse HS
on Saturday.
