FRVBC 17-1 Silver qualified in Open for the 2019 GJNC in Indianapolis by earning a Bronze medal finish at the Show Me Qualifier in Kansas City in April. Silver was the only RMR team to qualify this year in the 17 Open division for Nationals. They went to Indy with the hopes of a high finish in the 17 Open Division, and battled hard against some very competitive teams. Silver finished 27th out of 36 total teams in their field, with a 5-4 record. We are proud of the development of the team and the hard work every player put into this season, and we can’t wait to see what they can accomplish next season in 18’s.
Colorado Juniors 17 Matt double qualified for the 17USA division of the GJNC with a 4th place finish in Vegas at the SoCal qualifier and a 2nd place finish in Philadelphia at the NEQ tournament. The team chemistry on this team was outstanding for the 2019 season, win or lose the girls all competed their hardest together and helped each other push through the tough times. Each team member played very well in front of college coaches and represented CoJrs and the RMR superbly at this tournament. We had more losses than wins but we kept fighting and are more experienced and more ready to come back to nationals next year and compete for medals.

Colorado Juniors 17Kevin qualified in the National division by winning the RMR junior national qualifying tournament on May 5, 2019. The team went to Indianapolis with the hope of finishing in the top 10 and they did not disappoint! The first two days 17Kevin competed at an incredibly high level going 4-1 in pool play and finishing the pool in first place. Day 3 was business as usual for the team as they defeated Michio – Chicago and NRG VBC to also win the day 3 pool. Up next was the challenge match to determine either the gold or silver bracket going into day 4. 17Kevin was going to face a very talented APEX team out of California. It turned out to be an epic match (22-25, 32-30 and 13-15). Colorado Juniors 17Kevin ended up on the losing end of the match which dropped them into the silver bracket.

“Success isn’t measured by what you achieve, it’s measured by the obstacles you overcome”
This team has battled all season long on and off the court, each player working hard to find the college of their dreams, balancing school / testing / life / volleyball, and even winning a National Qualifier and a shiny gold ball along the way. It’s been a joy and privilege to have coached these young women and watch them grow into amazing people and volleyball players. I cannot wait to follow all their success in the future!
Momentum 17 Rachel had an amazing time in Indy wrapping up a hugely successful season. Finishing 29th out of 128 teams at Triple Crown Invite, we started off the season with a great showing in the Open Division. We continued our success by winning the Northern Lights Qualifier, taking home a gold ball, and earning our bid to Nationals. We ended our season in Indianapolis celebrating the success of our 7 newly signed college players and just enjoying the journey we took to get there. Here’s to another great season!
