Club Solano Volleyball has just wrapped up it’s inaugural season for Boy’s Volleyball. The 14U boys played their final tournament, the Regional Championships in San Mateo, and finished the two day tournament with a 5-2 record. This gave them 13th overall ranking for the NCVA 14U division. This was a great start considering this was the first year most of the boys have ever played volleyball. These boys were like a sponge and worked hard every week and it showed. They remained right in the middle of the Silver Division the whole season. Setter Gage Campbell was solid all season. His height and being a lefty helped us pickup many extra points with some nice dumps. We would also go on some really nice runs while he was serving. Playing opposite was Caden Spencer. Caden was one of our solid passers and one of the season leaders in aces. Our middle blockers, Joe McKee and Jack Nygard were walls in the middle. Joe led the team in blocks for the season while Jack was one of our “go to” guys for kills the whole season. Playing outside was Michael McBride and Blake Ivovic. Michael was probably one our most well rounded players from passing, serving, and hitting. Blake was playing for the first time and was really starting to put the balls away near the end. Both outside hitters were also main passers and were instrumental in our great season. Our libero, Noah Yi was the team leader in digs and one of our most consistent serve receivers. Even at the age of 11, I was getting comments about his skills in that position from refs and other coaches (No NCVC, you can’t have him next season). Finally Nathan Jose was our young one filling in all of the positions. This young man with a great attitude, was only 10 years old and hanging with the team all season. He still has 4 more years in this division and plenty of time to grow. It was an absolute pleasure to coach Club Solano’s first ever boys team. These boys will always be able to look back and say they were a part of Club Solano’s first ever boy’s team! In conclusion, I have a couple thanks… We had a great group of parents this season. Thanks for your positivity with me and the boys. Thanks to coach Brett and Salomon for helping with some of the practices this season. Thanks to our team mom, Alana Yi for your organization with the tournaments and helping with the boy’s activities. Finally, thanks to Club Solano Director, Wayne, for getting this program off the ground and giving me this opportunity! Great job boys! We’ll see you next fall for possibly two teams!
