News from Big South!

Nine Brazos Valley Junior teams adventured to Atlanta  for the largest National Qualifier in the country and there were many highlights! One unique highlight was that our Staff and Tryout Director, Kristin Goodman, sang the National anthem to kick off the Big South Tournament. Her beautiful voice covered the convention center!

16 National made the top half of 16 Open, with a thrilling first day and just missed the gold pools with great play on Day two. 15 National, competing in the USA Division made the gold  and dropped a tough 3 set match to Ocala Power who ended up being the tournament champion. 13 National went undefeated before losing in the quarter finals to finish 5th in the 100 team field. 15 Mizuno had an outstanding record of 8-1, losing only their challenge match, and went on to win the Silver bracket. 18 Mizuno (affectionately nicknamed 18 Gumbo for the weekend, because of the combination of different age players) was the crowd favorite for having the guts and the heart to compete in the oldest age group level. 12 National, 14 National, 18 National and 16 Mizuno all also represented BVJ in a great way!

 

Our teams enjoyed being together on and off the court, eating out together, visiting area attractions like the Coca-Cola Museum and the Atlanta aquarium,  and 13 National and 18 National spent some of their free time making cards for Cancer patients to donate to the Dig Pink booth. What a great gift!
