The 73+ team also won the gold, being only slightly less dominating, losing a total of 2 sets and no matches. In fact, four players on Rustys actually won every match they played over the 6 days.

Excel NW 14s Rox at 2012 Nationals

JRG 2012 Nat Excel NW 14 Rox TeamPhoto

Club Excel NW 14's ROX Team was the first 14s team to compete at Junior Nationals for the Excel Club. The inexperienced squad had a great time and played well. Here is the recap from the Club:

The Excel NW 14's team placed 5th in CEVA Regionals, and by default of 2 higher ranked teams received and accepted the American bid. One of our starting setters was unable to attend the tournament with the team, so we quickly had to alter our line-up significantly. We brought up a Libero from our Excel 14's Silver team to help balance the roster and had to integrate an existing player into the setting role.Because of the inexperience of the tam, the thrill to be at the tournament was overwhelming for all. The team achieved their first win the very first game of the tournament! We finished 4th of 6 in opening pool play, with a heartbreaking loss of 14-16 in the third game which would have put us 2nd and top half of the American Division. The team went on to win a match all 4 days of the tournament, which resulted in our 38th of 48 place finish. This is a tremendous accomplishment for a relatively inexperienced (and recognized) team!
