Future Pros Serving Up an Entertaining AVPFirst Seattle Gold Series Tournament
Seattle's first AVPFirst Gold Series event has attracted junior talent from Canada, Oregon, California and Arizona to compete for a direct bid to the AVPFirst National Championship in Hermosa Beach this July. The event is the first in the AVPFirst Gold Series of events to sell out every age division and Friday night the U16s kicked off a fierce competition after the pro tour wrapped up for the day.
Ally Polverari and Malina Baker of Santa Cruz Beach VBC put a stamp on the favorites spot in the u16 division not allowing a team to score more than 13 points in their four wins on stadium court.
Northwest u16 Zonal Qualification leaders Avi and Aris Vetter also went undefeated in dominating fashion. As did their closest competitors for the top spot out of the Northwest, Olivia Morgan and Logan Scully. Morgan and Scully's path to the finals will go through the number one seed from Santa Cruz. The Vetter's will have an easier route to the finals as the number two seed, but will have to handle a talented team from their own club, Dakine VC, if they advance to the semifinals. Elimination rounds of the U16 division are scheduled to start at 1:30pm Saturday afternoon with the finals scheduled to be played at 4:30pm on Stadium Court.
The U18 division will start Saturday night featuring favorites Darbi Honeycut and Kailey Klein from Phoenix, Arizona. U18 semifinals and finals will take place on Sunday morning alongside the U14 division.
