The 16-U Branchville-Colleton Juniors Club Volleyball team (BCJVB) captured the Winter Heat Silver Bracket Championship in Augusta, Ga., recently.
After an early morning loss during pool play against a solid team, the Juniors battled through the competition to earn a spot in the silver bracket. After a 25-12 and 25-17 win in the semi-finals, they advanced to face S.C. Midlands for the championship.
“The first set was a blowout with BCJVB winning 25-11,” said assistant coach Daniel Cox. “The tables flipped in the second set with a loss (25-11). The ladies re-grouped and came back in the third set to win 15-8 and captured the championship in the silver bracket.”
The 16-U BCJVB Head Coach Cinnamon Forst said, “I’m so proud of my girls — they have come a long way since the first tournament, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of our season holds.”
The Juniors will travel to Spartanburg on March 2 and then compete in the final tournament of the season March 23 in Charlotte, N.C.
