No better way to end the club season than with the illustrious USA Girls Junior National Championships every year.
With some of the best talents from across the country on tap, the gym is red hot with top notch competition. This year was no different for the championships, upsets galore, heavy weights falling and fresh faces atop the podium.
Let’s take a look at some of the best of the best throughout the field. On deck, the best wing attackers of the 17 Open division.
Playing up in this 17s division is a daunting task, but there are no youthful play with this one. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it here, Mambu’s play is so reminiscent of a Yossiana Pressley (Baylor). High flying, wicked arm and a lot of fire in her game.
Speaking of fiery players out of the Metro cannon, no one knows how to put on a better show than Sellman. Sellman is a trailblazer on the court and is nearly unstoppable when she’s on.
Another young pup playing up a division, Macaria Spears is in a league of her own. Her presence alone is intimidating to see across the net, but once she gets in flight and rips one in, you’re in for a real treat.
This was the first time I got see this line-up for TAV, but seeing Livings on the right pin was a great move for this North Texas squad. An impeccable attacker on either pin, Living’s ability to terminate on the right gives TAV the option to spread the ball with a lot of success.
No blocker too big, no defense too strong, no task hard enough for Beshear. This attacker’s ferocity towards every ball she is given was absolutely commendable to see. It was her fearless play that put the gas on for SCVC to win the 17 Open Championship.

A recent commit to the University of Pittsburgh, Coleman’s ability to take her team on her back and take over matches is incredible. Her play in the latter portions of the Drive Nation match to secure themselves advancement into gold was a great watch.
The 17 Open is riddled with power players playing up a division and killin’ the game. Mullen has been an avid star within this division full of 2024s for a long while now. A stout opponent to match up with on the right side, Mullen came in clutch stepping into the left pin well into the tournament.
