A huge congratulations goes out to Angelou Dunton (18 Black) who has been offered a spot on the USA Volleyball National A2 Invitational Training Camp for 2014! Angelou finished inside the top 40 juniors in the outside hitter position among over 250 outside hitters up to the age of 18 who tried out for the USA Junior National Team. Angelou represented VERY well and really blew up the court she was on along side the top players in this region during tryouts!
15 Black continues working hard, taking 1st Place at the LTVBC Tournament in February! To add to that, they followed up with a 2nd place finish in their flight at March Power League. By doing so, the team moves up to Flight 1 (Top 8) for the final Power League in April! Congratulations girls - keep up the hard work! GO WAHINE!

We have a lot of work to do and get better and we must continue to work hard to continually see improvement" said Club Director Glenn Rodenhurst.
