SCVA Boys Qualifying Day 1 - Win or Learn

PCH Boys program trains a 18-1, 17-1, 16-1, 16-2, and 14-1 team. Four of our five teams competed in the 2019-20 SCVA Qualifying Day 1. 14-1 was the only team that did not participate. They will have their qualifying day 1 on November 1st. This was an exciting day for all four of our teams that competed. We remind our players that winning is great but losses are learning opportunities. Win or Learn.

Below is a summary of each team's Qualifying Day 1:

18-1: Finished second in their four team pool with a 2-1 record. The day was highlighted by exciting win over Evolution 17-1's team in 3 games. The match ended on an emphatic overpass kill from outside hitter, Everett Chok, to seal game 3 by a score of 15-13.

17-1: Finished third in their four pool with a 1-2 record. They had a very competitive pool with SG Elite 17-1 (a top 5 SCVA 17s team), Wave 17 Skyler, NOCA 17 Black. We loved the way our 17s team competed throughout the day. They took down the two seed: Wave 17 Skyler in a tough three game match. They had opportunities to close out a good NOCA 17 Black team but dropped the heartbreaking second set 27-29. The team was led by Dalen Martin's setting and consistent blocking and hitting from both from middle, Jozef Lingenfelter, and Opposite, Jackson Paul.

16-1: Finished third in a five team pool with a 2-2 record. This team came in as the third seed. We loved how this group gave themselves a chance to get second in the pool. Unfortunately, they came up a little bit short. They handled A4 16u and SMBC 16 Adidas in straight sets winning both matches 2-0. SMBC was the 2 seed and A4 was the fourth seed. PCH ended up losing a third set battle vs. Universal which bumped them down to third place in the pool. Overall, a great day for this team and we are very excited to see how they handle qualifying day 2.

16-2: Finished fourth in their four team pool with 0-3 record. We love this team's fighting spirit. This group loves volleyball and loves to work hard. They battled through missing their starting setter because he was injured so this was a big time learning day for them. Once Andrew is back, they'll be getting the results they want.

Great job to all four of our high school teams! Linked are the SCVA results:
