Oregon Juniors Volleyball Academy traveled to Ohio for the National Championships for the 16's National Division. After a great performance at Regionals, OJVA found themselves with an uphill battle at Nationals. Here's their story:

Placing second at Regionals with only seven healthy girls and earning a National bid was definitely a defining moment in our season! We were very excited to get to represent our club and our Region at Nationals in Columbus, Ohio.
Out of 48 teams, we went into the tournament seeded 48th! I'm not sure why we were seeded so low, but we had nowhere to go but up. We played in a six team pool the first two days. We had the number one seed in the tournament in our pool, Woodlands Wave 16's. Also in our pool was 253 Elite 16's, which is a team from Washington that we played a number of times in the Platinum Division in Power League play this year. We only won one of our five matches those first two days, but all of them except for our match against the WAVE team were competitive, and we walked away feeling like they were winnable. We just did not play our best the first two days and had some ball handling issues. If you have never been to Junior Nationals, it can be a little overwhelming - with teams from all over the country, and college coaches every where you turn around. We did play well against a team from Hawaii, Mililani 16's, and got our first win of the tournament. That felt good and gave us the confidence that we needed going into day three.
