Great Miami Academy wins Union College Invitational Volleyball Tournament

The Greater Miami Academy Warriors won the Union College Invitational Volleyball Tournament two sets to none over College View Academy on Saturday night.

The tournament got underway on Thursday, Oct. 17, sporting not only a new name, but a change in format as well. Formerly known as the Mid-America Union Volleyball Tournament, the 2013 tournament includes high schools from around the country and will introduce seeded pool play instead of a round robin format to accomodate more teams.

The tournament began at 1:00 p.m., featuring 11 teams divided into three pools. Each team played three games in their pool to determine placement in four pools for the seeded pool play on Friday. The top three teams from each pool on Thursday became a pool on Friday, the second place teams became another pool, the third place teams a third pool and the fourth place teams rounded out the final pool. The Friday games determined seeding for the championship tournament bracket on Friday afternoon and Saturday night.
