Rome Area Volleyballhad another great weekend at the TK Volleyball Club’s Faceoff Tournament in Atlanta. The RAV 17 blue team finished the weekend as tournament champions, winning all sets but one throughout the tournament. This 17s team is a hardworking mix of girls from four schools who have great chemistry and have been a real pleasure to coach and watch develop. Many will likely go on to play in college; one, Eva Ellenburg, is already signed to do just that. RAV has two 11-year-old teams that have been learning, growing, and having a lot of volleyball fun this season. In fact, the 11 blue team also finished as champions of their age division at the TK Volleyball Faceoff on Saturday. They worked hard pushing through a long day and won all but one match while showing great improvement in every facet of the game, including the mental side of volleyball with their focus and determination. The 11 white team continues to improve and have fun as they develop. RAV’s 12s team also played on Saturday in the TK Faceoff Tournament, showing improvement in their game as well, while finishing third.
