14 National Loves Their Support Chain!

 Brazos Valley Juniors concluded the regular season with a great showing at Lone Star Regionals in Houston. Brazos Valley 11 National completed a tremendous season by finishing 5th in the Region. BVJ 12 Mizuno won the Silver bracket as did BVJ 17 National. BVJ 12 Premier also played great and showed outstanding improvement from the beginning of the season.

 In the first weekend of Regionals, competition was outstanding and BVJ 13 National won the Silver Bracket, losing only their cross match all weekend in a thrilling contest that ended 20-18 in the deciding third set.  16 Mizuno earned a strong 9th place finish in the gold bracket and 14 National was one win short of the gold bracket, dropping the match to the eventual Regional Champion.

Overall, it was a wondeful regular season with remarkable improvement for the teams and the individual players. Congratulations to all of our players, coaches and families!

 We look forward to our 14 National, 15 National, and 16 National teams participating in the USAV National Championships in Minneapolis in late June.

Outstanding Original Quote!

What others call mulish stubbornness is what we call dogged determination. What others call chasing a lost cause is what we call relentless pursuit. What others call an unhealthy obsession is what we call an ardent passion. What others call volleyball is what we call our favorite sport. ---Amy Hu, BVJ 15 National and College Station High School
