Mixed fortunes in Florida

The Bermuda junior boys national volleyball team wrapped up their run at the 46th AAU Junior National Volleyball Championships Orlando, Florida over the weekend.

The AAU national championships featured 40 separate divisions for boys and girls from ages 10 and under through to under-18.

The Bermuda boys competed in the under-18 division, featuring some of the best club teams in the US. They opened their tournament with a defeat to Raptors from Florida, losing in three sets. Bermuda then lost two further matches on the first day to move into a new pool for the second day.

On day two, Bermuda lost some tight matches against teams from Illinois, Pennsylvania and Florida, moving them into the Diamond Division on Sunday.

They opened day three with a win against NYC Crusaders before falling to Tainos, Florida in their elimination match.

“The boys played so well this weekend. We are very proud of them all,” said Denise Somerville, head coach.

“The boys had to overcome many injuries this tournament with Josh Blee fracturing an elbow, and both Aidan McPhail and Connor Somerville breaking a finger.

“The team all came together and supported each other and represented Bermuda with pride.”
