2014 AAU CLUB NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS-WRAP UP

All eyes were on AAU Track and Field Club National Championships the week of July 7th through 13th as nearly 5,000 athletes representing 324 teams with coaches and families in tow, took to ESPN’s Wide World of Sports to compete for the title of Club National Champion.

This year, not only was this tournament the largest it has ever been, but there was a great representation from the United States and abroad. Athletes traveled from a number of countries including Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Bahamas, the United Kingdom, Finland, Norway, Canada and Colombia to participate.

Competition saw some incredible displays of athleticism this year with over 75 total meet records broken in running and field events over the week span.

Sisters Rachelle, and Charmaine De Orbeta, of Bayamon Club, broke the 3000 meter racewalk records. Rachelle (14:38.44) in the 14 year old 3000m racewalk and Charmaine (15:06.66) in the 15-16 year old 3000m racewalk.

Nicole Green of the Young Achievers broke a record held for fifteen years in the 17-18 year old women’s high jump with a jump of 5 feet 10 inches.

The 100 meter prelims were run on Wednesday, where 213 heats were run in two hours and fifty-seven minutes. 37% of athletes registered for the meet ran in the 100m prelims.

On Thursday, The 200 meter prelims ran 266 heats in three hours and twenty-five minutes averaging 45 seconds per heat with 45% of athletes registered in the meet participating. This is the largest number of athletes competing in the 200 in this meet and also the AAU Junior Olympic Games.

Combined, athletes ran 82,000 meters or 17 miles of 400 meter races on Friday. For the first time in an AAU track meet, two races were being timed on the track simultaneously during the 400’s, drastically cutting the time to four hours and five minutes total. 34.8% of athletes competing ran in the 400 meter prelims.

After a grueling week of competition, on Sunday when the final race wrapped up on the track, the club awards were announced. Track Houston took home the overall Club Championship team award with a team total of 590.50 points. Miami Gardens Xpress came in second with a score of 286 points and Cupey Track Club just trailed them in third with a score of 322.50 points.

Congratulations to ALL of the athletes who participated in the Club National Championships and a special congratulations to all of our newly crowned National Champions and All Americans! We hope to see everyone back on the track in Des Moines for the AAU Junior Olympic Games and once again at Club Championships in 2015!

OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW

Can last year's National Champions claim the crown again this year? With more than 2,100 teams at the 2014 AAU Girls' Junior National Volleyball Championships, the battle won’t be easy. Keep reading to find out how last year’s champions fared this year!

Mizuno Northern Lights won the 15U Open Championship last year and were looking for another title in the 16U division this year. They started off strong, winning all 11 of their matches in pool play, earning them a spot in the 16 Open Championship Division. They were one of eight teams to make it to the final bracket, but were knocked out in the first round by Triangle 16 Black, who would go on to claim the runner-up trophy in the division. Skyline 16 RSB Royal took the gold for the 16 Open division and are the new National Champions! Congratulations, girls!

The former 16U Open Runner-Up, Mizuno Sports Performance, didn’t even make it to the Championship Division this year. They placed first in the 16 Open Consolation Division and Triangle 16 Black claimed the runner-up trophy for 2014!

Last year, the 16U Open National Championship game was between Mizuno Northern Lights 17-1 and Legacy 17-1, in which Legacy took home the gold. This year, in the 17U Open Championship Division both teams were in it once again and both started their day off with a bye. This time, Mizuno Northern Lights 17-1 had something to prove and took home the title after Legacy was knocked out by TUVA – 17 Tampa in the first round.
Illini Elite 17 Cardinal took home the runner-up trophy after falling to Mizuno Northern Lights 17-1 in straight sets.

Congratulations to both teams and good luck next year!
Last year’s 14U Open National Champion, Mizuno Northern Lights 15-1 had back to back championship dreams and they made it happen! They won every match they played while at the AAU Volleyball National Championships, all in two sets, except for the final Championship Game. They started with a bye going into the Championship bracket and defeated Fusion South 15 Red and Lexington United 15 Black to make it to the Championship Game, where they grabbed the three set win against Asics Munciana Ninjas, 25-21, 25-27, 15-6. Will they make it back-to-back-to-back next year?
