Wisconsin sent 13 teams to compete in Anaheim last weekend, with 6 teams in the 4 Qualifying divisions and 7 teams in the non-qualifying Patriot Division. Part 3 is a quick recap of how Capital 18 Adidas did in the USAV 18s Junior National Championships while competing in the USA Division.
CAPITAL 18 ADIDAS – FINISHED 17TH OUT OF 48
Capital 18 Adidas certainly had a tough schedule this season competing in the Great Lakes Power League and tournaments such as the Nike Mideast Qualifier and the JVA World Challenge. Capital started out on Friday (4/27) morning with a pair of losses in their opening matches. Their first loss came to TVC 18-1 (21-25, 22-25) and the second loss was against HPSTL 18 Orange (26-28, 16-25).
Capital said, “Enough!” and took their last match of the day against VA Juniors 18 Elite (25-21, 25-10). This must have sparked a fire because they started out Saturday with 2 wins against EC Power 18-Sapphire (25-23, 25-19) and Palm Beach Jrs. 18 E (25-23, 25-21). Capital held a 3-2 record in their pool, which had them tied for second, but the tie-breaking procedure put them in 3rd.
Third place put them into a Challenge H bracket, where they lost to EC Power 18-Royal (17-25, 17-25). This loss placed them in the Bronze B Bracket on Sunday (4/29), where the started out beating COAST 18-2 (19-25, 25-13, 15-8), and then won the bracket in a battle with TAV 18 Blue (25-15, 30-28). Winning the Bronze B Bracket put Capital in a 17th out of 45 finish with a 5-3 finish for the weekend. Capital had a few tough losses to teams like HPSTL 18 Orange (St. Louis), who finished 5th overall, and had a 45-13 record for the season.
Fun fact; one of HPSTL 18 Orange middle hitters, Kendall Enyart will be continuing her playing career next fall at UW-Oshkosh with(Southwest VBC 18/West Allis Hale). HPSTL 18 Orange has a number of players going to play in the fall at Canisius (DI), Central Missouri (DII), Grinell College (DIII), Jefferson College (JuCo), Mineral Area College (JuCo), and Washington University (DIII).
Congrats to Capital 18 Adidas on a solid finish to their season. After playing in California, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, and Wisconsin this past club season, Capital 18 Adidas players are ready for the next level. We are looking forward to seeing how you make your mark at the next level!
