Emerald City Classic 2016
Congratulations to the U17's for finishing solidly in the Gold Medal Round at the 2016 Emerald City Classic. This is the first time we have had a team qualify to go to the classic and they wasted no time in establishing that we belong there.
With a solid fourth place finish they made it well known that Smokey Point Volleyball was there and there to stay. The U17's went in ranked tenth overall and improved their standing each day. They finished second in Day 1 pool play and moved to Court 1 for Day 2. On Day 2 they also finished second in their pool earning a spot in the Gold Medal Round.
In the first round of Gold Medal play the U17's took on addidas NW from Portland and came out with a win moving them to the semi final round. The semi pitted SPVC U17 vs. WVBA 18 Molten. While WVBA ultimately triumphed, the U17's took the first set convincingly 25/17. The last two sets were close and WVBA had to earn the right to move on leaving our U17's with unfinished business to complete next year.
