Bay to Bay 12-1: A Vibrant Victory at Boys Champs

Dallas, Texas – July 2, 2019 – Winning a national championship is an exhilarating experience. But winning that championship with your entire club cheering you on takes the excitement to a whole new level. The Bay to Bay 12-1 team from USA Volleyball’s Northern California Region discovered this firsthand when they emerged victorious over TORRIMAR 12-1 from Puerto Rico with a score of 25-20, 25-14, clinching the 12 Club title at the USAV Boys Junior National Championships held at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.

Uniting Through Support

Adding to the electric atmosphere of the championship match, the Bay to Bay 12-1 team received spirited encouragement from their fellow club members, while TORRIMAR was backed by teams from Puerto Rico. This outpouring of support created an incredible energy that fueled the players on both sides of the court.

“It was so much fun,” expressed Bay to Bay’s Roan David Alviar. “Even just scoring a single kill, everyone was cheering us on with enthusiasm.”

A Community United

According to Club Director Matt Houlihan, rallying behind their peers was always part of the plan for Bay to Bay. “When my wife and I took over the club six years ago, she said, ‘I want to get to the point where our club is there supporting another team and just giving them all the positive energy and support that they need,'” he shared. “It was awesome to see that community come together around a group like this.”
