Congratulation to Iowa Rockets 18R and Iowa Rockts 18-1 !!
Rockets 18R and 18-1 had great performances at the Martin Luther King Qualifier in Kansas City on the January 14-16 weekend. Iowa Rockets 18-1 was 6-0 heading into the final day, but lost to a strong Invasion team from Kansas City in the quarterfinals. 18-1 finished in the Gold Division for 5th place overall.
Iowa Rockets 18R capture 1st place overall. They were 6-0 in pool play defeating teams from Dallas TX, Kansas City MO & Fort Collins CO. 18R played Shockwave VB Academy (Lawernce, KS) in the quarter finals, Invasion (Kansas City, MO) in the semi’s and a very tough ITC Power Volleyball (Kansas City, MO) in the finals. The Iowa Rockets 18R earns a bid to the USAV Junior Nationals in Dallas, TX on April 21-23, 2017.
