SW U14A & B Squads

After 68 matches played across Saturday and Sunday, North West and West Midlands girls came out victorious- the North West in the U16 and U14A competition, and the West Midlands in the U14B competition.

The South East and North West topped their respective groups although both dropped a set along the way.  In the semi finals, London managed to turn things around against the South East after losing the first set. North West had a comfortable two set victory over East Midlands, and followed it up with a win in the Final against London albeit with a slight dip in form losing the second set 25-11.

West Midlands U14B finished on top after a close three set Final against the North West. A win for the North West would have seen them take a clean sweep in the girl’s competition but the West Midlands, led by Captain Carla Hulme, were determined not to go home empty handed. The South West finished 4th despite pushing the North West and London to three sets. On another day they could well have made the final.

SW U16 Squad

In one of the best games over the two days, the North West hit back in the Final to beat the East after losing the first set 25-23. Both regions had looked particularly strong, so the final was always going to be a great match up. There was a great crowd to watch what was a fitting finale to the competition as parents and other teams gathered around the court- a great advert for junior volleyball.
