Rox Volleyball and The National Volleyball League “The NVL” took over The Beach Waterpark in Mason Ohio last weekend for the 2nd annual Midwest Championships. New champions were crowned for both the men and women in front of a packed stadium court. Rox Athletes Pri Piantadosi-Lima) and Kaya Sowala were de-throned by another Rox Athlete, Brooke Niles and new partner Jessica Stubinski. They beat the 2-time reigning champs in a hard fought 3 game match. On the men’s side the number 7 seed of Piotr Marciniak and Matt Henderson played nearly flawless volleyball to take down the number 2 seed (and crowd favorites) Drew Mallin and Dave Palm. Congrats to all our ROX Pros who lead by example and set the bar for up and coming ROX Stars.
ROX Volleyball was well represented in the finals and throughout the event, as the bikini of choice for most of the female athletes. The men’s boardshorts made waves with the players and fans alike. From the wave pool to “The Cliff”, everyone was looking good in their ROX Volleyball beach apparel.
The NVL/ROX clinic was a huge success. Kids came from all over the Midwest to experience training with our NVL & ROX pros! The players ranged from 8 to 15 years old and all skill levels. Some kids had never touched a volleyball before and ended the clinic playing doubles with the pros. We can see the future of our sport at each of these clinics and boy, does it look bright!
Next stop for the NVL/ROX Pro beach series is in Milwaukee Wisconsin at the infield of IndyFest! Your favorite ROX Pros will compete for the title as Indy cars speed around the track. Will the new champs reign supreme or will the crown return to the previous winners? The only way to find out is to follow along and cheer on your favorite ROX Pros!
