(6/02/12) Panama City Beach Bash in PCB, FL
We only had one team who traveled to compete in Panama City, FL for the PCB Bash. It was a tough tournament, especially in the 18U Division. With many College Coaches coming out to watch and recruit, the tournament set up the 18U Division to be more of a showcase.
Newcomer, Sara Langston, played in her first beach volleyball tournament this weekend and was paired up with more experienced Katie Render. Even though the two had to compete in the 18U division because Sara is 17 years old, they still held their own!
Playing up was a challenge, but Katie Render led the pair to a hard-fought 2-6 finish for the tournament.
(5/26/12) FloraBama Tournament in Perdido Key, FL
Two Birmingham Sand Volleyball teams traveled to The FloraBama this Memorial Day weekend and competed against some top junior players.
There was not only a big crowd turnout for this tournament, but Fox 6 News was there to get the scoop on the "Birmingham Players". It was such a privilege for our players to be interviewed and also for our clinic to get mention in this segment. Check out the link to Fox 6 below to watch the recap of the segment and also read the article on the News website.
17 year old Holly Marbut and Amanda Guarisco partnered up to compete in their first Beach Volleyball Tournament. They played in the 18U division and finished 1-2 with a great tournament showing which included a tough match against one of the top 18U pair in the region! Congrats girls!!
Second year player Katie Render and newcomer Kaitlyn Lund paired up to play in the 16U division. An unlikely pair, because of their ages (Katie 15 and Kaitlyn 12), they made it to the semi-finals and lost in a close match to the champions of the tournament.
(4/28/12) Beach Season Opener in Gulf Shores, AL
