The second annual Norcal HS Beach Volleyball Championships were held in Santa Cruz on Sunday, May 6. More than 30 high schools participated in the event, which reflects the growing popularity of the sport in Northern California. Brand new club teams from Acalanes, Campolindo, Las Lomas and Miramonte were started this year in response to interest in Beach Volleyball among our local high school athletes. The launch of these teams was made possible by a partnership with LMYA Sports, which sponsored the court time for practice at Moraga Commons, and a devotion to organizing and coaching the teams by LMYA Volleyball Commissioner Eric Standring. It was a successful and fun first season, capped off by a third place finish by the Dons of Acalanes High School.
