The first travel tournament of the Summer season was a great success for Bay to Bay as a whole. The West Coast Classic serves as a tune up tournament leading into Boy's Junior National Championships where teams can see where they stand against the National competition.
While competing against some of the top teams in the country, our Bay to Bay teams showed tremendous growth and promise. Our 14-1's and 12-1's teams both lost extremely close 3-set matches in the Finals of the tournament and our 15-1's squad brought home the Bronze in another closely contested three set battle.
