It's never too late to plan early! 2018 USA Volleyball Open Nationals will be in Dallas Texas and just announced the 2019 Open Nationals will be held in Columbus Ohio.
What an incredibly evenly matched tourney!
Going into Round 9 of pool play it was possible that all 5 teams would end up at 4-4, forcing some math and playins....luckily for the TD this did not happen. Awkward High Fives, who started with only 5 players in round 1(today's lesson, don't lock yourself out of your apartment while packing your stuff up for a tournament), ended up avenging their first round crushing 25-12, 25-17 defeat by MIT by overcome them in the finals in a close 3 set match. Somehow the combined strength of Boom! and Tensegrity, the winners of multiple WC+ tourneys this year and last just didn't work out for them.
1. MIT 6-2
2. Awkward High Fives 5-3
3. Shenanigans 4-4
4. Dirty Half Dozen 3-5
5. Boom-segrity! 2-6
Semifinals Awkward High Fives d. Shenanigans 25-9
Finals Awkward High Fives d. MIT 25-15, 20-25, 15-11
