Triangle sees success on Presidents' Day Weekend

Teams compete in Utah; Numerous top 10 finishes in DC

 

February 15, 2016: This weekend saw 20 Triangle teams competing in three-day Presidents’ Day events literally across the country in both Salt Lake City and Washington DC. There were many exciting matches, some great team moments both on and off the court, and many examples of perseverance, hard work, and sportsmanship. One look at our Instagram [@TriangleVBC] and you will see that these teams excelled on the court while also enjoying many wonderful moments off the court. Those two things, we believe, combine to create both the opportunity and value of the youth sports experience.

Six teams traveled to Salt Lake City for the Triple Crown Sports National Invitation Tournament. This event was one of the most competitive club events in recent history with national powers like T Street, Vision, Texas Advantage, Munciana, KIVA, A5, and Arizona Storm.

All teams were competitive in their age groups and many matches were decided in 3 exciting sets. Triangle had some exciting comeback wins including 17 Blue reversing a 10-14 deficit to beat NPJ [Oregon] in 3; 16 Black coming back from an 8-13 deficit to defeat Long Beach Mizuno 20-18 in the 3rd, and 15 Black coming back from 0-6 in the third to beat Club V [Utah] and shut down the gym late Sunday night.
