This past weekend concluded the 2019 Power League season! It was most definitely a memorable one with Bay to Bay teams showing strong improvement and consistency throughout the course of the year. Next up on the calendar is bid season! All Bay to Bay teams will be back in the gym this weekend (Dec. 28-29) at The Foundry in Redwood City.
Bay to Bay 18-1:
Our eldest boys put together a fantastic tournament going 7-1 and finishing in 5th place. They won an epic match against Bay to Bay 17-1’s (26-28, 25-22, 18-16) but they came out as 2nd in the pool due to a 3-way tie based upon point ratio, barely missing a berth in the semi finals.
Bay to Bay 17-1:
After falling just short in an epic match against the 18-1’s Sunday morning, the 17-1’s advanced to the Gold bracket. They won the semi-finals in straight sets and lost a closely contested championship match (21-25, 25-20, 13-15). This finish secured their spot as the #2 team in the 18-under division.
Bay to Bay 17-2:
Coach Ryan and Sam’s squad finished the weekend 3-5. Through the Power League season the boys made two appearances in the Gold division and never dropped below Silver. The team also recently competed in an ALS fundraiser tournament, raising over $250 as a team.
Bay to Bay 16-1: Playing up in the 18’s division, the 16-1’s proved a force to be reckoned with. The boys went 6-2 on the weekend narrowly losing in three sets to Bay to Bay 17-1’s and defeating our Bay to Bay 18-1’s (26-24, 21-25, 17-15). They finished in a 3-way tie for first with a chance to go to the semifinals but came out on the short end of the point ratio. Undeterred, the team swept through their remaining matches to finish 8th in the 18’s division!
