OJVA 18 Gold played in the National Division at GJNC in Dallas, TX this June. They finished 13th overall, and had some fantastic competitive matches throughout the tournament. Even the matches they lost, the team felt like they were fighting in each set. The level of play is bigger and quicker and our team rose to the occasion each day.
Junior Setter Bathany Kosmowski reflects on the tournament..."Nationals this year at Dallas was a great experience. It was my first time competing in a national tournament and it was mind blowing to see the best of the best compete. Seeing these teams play just goes to show that this game just gets quicker. Being with my team and playing in that environment really brought us together. We had many close games, but we pushed through as a team. We bonded through this experience and saw that we will only get better wherever our volleyball careers take us. I am very thankful that I got to go to nationals this year."
