The first wave of championship matches are in the books at the 41st Annual AAU Junior National Volleyball National Championships. In all, we crowned 19 national champions on Friday, June 20 in the 10u-15u, 18u and International divisions. Six matches were streamed live on ESPN3-- International, 18u Open, 12u Open, World Championship, 13u Open and 14u Open.
In the 10u-15u divisions, there was much to be excited about.
GVA from Puerto Rico made a statement in the younger divisions, taking home three AAU Volleyball National Championships. In the 10u division, they defeated Vaqueras in two sets (25-23, 25-20). GVA 11u Fonseca had to go three sets (23-25, 25-22, 15-8) in order to get by Queens Richard for the 11u national title. Then at 1:30 p.m., GVA Alex took center court on ESPN 3 versus Titanas Morovis for the 12u Open Final. They cruised in straight sets (25-8, 25-16) to secure the club's third title.
At 5:30 p.m. on ESPN 3, Vaqueeras 13-1 and Avoli 13 Kike suited up for the 13u Open National Championship. Avoli seemed to be in control early, going on a 6-0 run to go up 21-17. They would never look back, taking the first set 25-21. But Vaqueras was just getting started. They clawed back and took the second (25-11) and third sets (15-11) to be crowned the 13u Open National Champions.
In the nightcap game, Asics Kiva Red and TBVA 14 served up an intense, three-set match in the 14u Open Final for everyone to enjoy. Asics Kiva jumped out in front of No. 1 ranked TBVA 14, going on a 6-0 run to go up 19-11. They would take the first set 25-16. TBVA wasn't ready to bow out. They opened the second with a 7-2 lead and would cruise to 25-11 second-set victory. To the third they went. It was all TBVA from there. They downed Kiva Red 15-9 to take the 14u Open National Championship in the club's first year.
