Local Volleyball Teams Win Gold, Silver in Tournament

Two local volleyball teams from the South River Volleyball Club won gold and silver medals at a volleyball tournament on Jan. 27.

The 14U Storm placed second in the MD Juniors 14’s Open Tournament, which is the more competitive pool in the contest. The 14U Surge placed first in MD Juniors 14’s Club Tournament.

Trish Sorrells, a parent and photographer for the team, said both Storm and Surge hosted tryouts in mid-November and didn't really start practicing together until December, which makes their success even more exciting. 

In the tournament, which was held at the Maryland Juniors Sportsplex in Jessup, the teams played three games before being ranked for pool play in the tournament. Both teams made it to finals in their respective pools.

One of the goals of the South River Volleyball Club is to prepare the girls for high school play. Most of the girls on the team currently attend Central Middle, Southern Middle or School of the Incarnation.

The following girls are on Storm: Madisyn Jones, Mia Suplee, Sydney Mose, Eva Price, Savannah Siegrist, Emily Sorrells, Mabel Sullivan, Coco Turvold, Taylor Wigglesworth and Macey Strunk Amy Hagen.

The following girls are on Surge: Molly Bottorff, McKenzie Jackson, Maddie Berger, Taylor Fields, Taylor Kuhns, Claire Laughlin, Sarah Manderson, Jocelyn Minich, Skylar Nuthall and Adrianna Sita.
