Volleyball update

The USA Volleyball girls’ club nationals are continuing in Minneapolis this morning, with playoff action in the U15 “Patriot” division featuring a pair of local teams with Mount Si High School players, both of whom are holding their own against the top national competition this week.

Kent-based KJ, featuring Mount Si’s Victoria BearBow, went 1-2 in their three matches yesterday, and will play in the playoffs later today against a California team. KJ beat a Minneapolis-area team yesterday, but fell to a second Minnesota squad along with a second one from California. They are in the “Silver” bracket playoff, meaning they’ll have a high placing in the final standings in the division once they are done later today.

Meanwhile Maple Valley-based Boost, with Wildcat Chloe Stewart, won both of their matches yesterday to extend their tournament match win streak to five. They are underway right now in playoff action against a team from Minneapolis; they beat a second Twin Cities team, along with a squad from St. Louis, in yesterday’s action. Boost is in the “Flight 4” playoff, so their final placing will be further down in the overall standings when that is made official later on today.

Tournament action continues tomorrow and through next week there in the Twin Cities.

CHS alum, club team gets set for final weekend of season: Action gets underway this afternoon down in Anaheim at the Summer Soiree tournament for the Bellevue-based High Velocity 18’s, featuring Cedarcrest High School grad Kam Leslie. HV is scheduled to meet teams from California, Oregon and Hawaii during their three matches today, which start at 3:00 and will last through this evening, all at the Anaheim Convention Center across the street from Disneyland. Play in this tournament runs through this weekend.
