MISSOURI THUNDER MAKES IMPRESSIVE NATIONALS DEBUT
The members and coaches of the Missouri Thunder Volleyball Club decided to make the long trip to the 2014 AAU Boys' Junior National Volleyball Championships and that decision seemed to be a good one as they toted their trophy back to their car. The Thunder, coached by Deb Nicollerat, won every match throughout the tournament, earning them a coveted spot in the 17U Championship game.
In the Championship Game, they unfortunately fell to the Ocean Bay 17 Quiksilver, giving them their first loss of the tournament. Nicollerat was excited about the second place finish.
