Three days of intensely competitive volleyball at the Triple Crown NIT delivered a number of champions at various age groups, and we congratulate those teams that thrived and survived in Kansas City over President’s Day Weekend.
But only one program headed home with the 2020 Top Club Award – A5 Volleyball Club!
To be eligible for the award, a club must have entered a team in at least three age divisions (12s through 18s), and points were tabulated from the top three finishes of each club. Here is the breakdown for the Top 10:
1. A5 Volleyball (290 points) – Based out of north Atlanta, A5 was a factor in multiple age groups, with the 17-Jing team winning at 17 Elite, and both 18-Scott and 14-Helen taking second place in their elite divisions.
2. Legacy (200) – Located in northwest Detroit, Legacy came away with Elite division titles at 18’s and 15’s and moved up from a tie for sixth in last year’s Club standings.
3. Texas Advantage (180) – TAV (suburban Dallas) had won two of the previous three Club awards; in 2020, the 18’s and 17’s and 14’s reached the quarterfinals.
4. Wave (140) – Based in Del Mar, CA., Wave reached the quarterfinals at 16 Elite and 14 Elite.
T5. TStreet (Irvine, CA), Skyline (Dallas), MadFrog (Dallas), all with 120 points. MadFrog excelled at the younger age groups, winning the 12 Elite and 13 Elite titles while getting to the 16 Elite semifinals. Skyline made the 16 Elite semifinals and 17 Elite quarterfinals; TStreet reached the 17 Elite quarterfinals and the 15 Elite semifinals.
T8. Club Ignit (IA), OT (FL), Dynasty (KS), all with 100 points. Club Ignit (Des Moines) took the title at 16 Elite; OT (Orlando/Tampa) got to the quarterfinals at 16 Elite and 15 Elite; Dynasty (Kansas City) ended up in the 14 Elite quarterfinals, the 13 Elite semifinals and the 12 Elite championship match.
