NCVC Collects Second Title of 2023 BJNC

Winning a single title at a national championship is a remarkable achievement in its own right. But winning two titles? That’s a testament to hard work, dedication, and a club’s unwavering commitment to excellence.

NCVC (Northern California) proved their dedication by securing their second title at the 2023 Boys Junior National Championship. This time, it was their 17-1 Blue team that emerged victorious in the Open division. Just a few days earlier, their 15-1 Blue team had claimed gold in the 15 Open category.

Head coach Tyler Salcedo expressed his joy, saying, “It feels incredible. That was a grind. That double elimination was unreal. There was a four-way tiebreaker just to get into the top four. We snuck in at fourth. Just an absolute grind of a tournament. That was unreal. It was insane. Everybody could beat everybody. Any of those eight teams could have won the tournament.”

This victory in the 17 Open division showcased the fiercely competitive nature of the tournament. NCVC finished with a record of 7-4, with their main competitor being ACAD Boys 17 Red (Garden Empire), who finished 9-3. Although ACAD initially won the first matchup between the two teams, NCVC came back strong in the bracket play to secure the win.
