Greensboro College — The AFVC 16s brought a disappointing 7-12 overall match record to the Carolinas Region tournament at Greensboro College’s Reynolds Center, and left, after winning five matches in a row and dropping only one set, with a 12-12 record and championship medal.
The girls began their sweep with an impressive victory over the host squad from Piedmont Volleyball Club 2-0. With an aggressive offense that seemed to attack at every opportunity, the 16s rolled through NC Elite, and then defeated Cape Fear Volleyball Club in three sets to win their pool.
Having a bye in the first round of the playoffs, the girls faced in the semi-finals the LAVA Flames, a team that defeated them 2-1 the weekend prior in Roanoke at the Shamrock Festival. Revenge was sweet as the AFVC 16s trounced the Flames 2-0 to move onto the championship finals.
AFVC met another undefeated team from Topsail, who narrowly defeated Piedmont Volleyball in three sets in their semi-final match. The 16s continued to roll with accurate serving, hustling defense, and pinpoint accuracy from hitters Allison Allred and Tara McNeil, to finish the sweep at 2-0. Hitters Alayna West and Cassidy Andrews also contributed to the offensive attack. It was an overall complete performance by the entire team. Tara McNiel was named Most Outstanding Player of the tournament.
This is the 16s first tournament championship in 2015.
Greensboro, NC — January 3, 2015
The Alamance Force 16s started off the club tournament season by placing 2nd at the Carolina Region Tournament held at the Greensboro Sportsplex in Greensboro. The girls started off strong, going undefeated in their first three matches in pool play. In the first round of the playoffs, they won a tough match to advance to the championship round, but lost a hard fought match in the final.
Congrats to the AFVC 14’s team who have started their season strong. The 14’s team has qualified for the playoffs in each of their first two tournaments.
